Science writer and cryptozoology researcher Matt Bille offers 400 reviews of significant books in cryptozoology, supporting sciences like biology, and cryptozoological fiction. Matt’s selections, based on 45 years of reading and writing on zoology and cryptozoology, favor reliable science and history, providing an essential foundation for enthusiasts and skeptics alike. The search for unknown animals starts here.
 
"Looking for a concise but reliable survey of the most noteworthy cryptozoological books past and present? Look no further - here it is!" - Dr. Karl P. N. Shuker, Zoologist

    Finding meaning in trauma work, as a traumatized healer yourself.The act of caregiving is physically exhausting and emotionally draining, yet caregivers describe it as rewarding and gratifying. Prolonged exposure to human suffering, however, is not without risks—caregivers report high rates of burnout and poor quality of life.Many care providers believe that their feelings do not matter; that they should ignore their pain, brush off their trauma, wipe away their tears, and just "suck it up." Here, Omar Reda—a Libyan-born American psychiatrist who as an emergency physician and trauma counselor provided care for medical staff caring for victims of trauma—calls upon other healers to break free from cycles of secrecy, toxic stress, and silent suffering so they can continue to empower and inspire those in their care.Filled with poignant first-person stories and clinical case studies, this book is an impassioned plea for psychosocial trauma care that prioritizes the health of both client and healer.

    It's inevitable to say that the Coronavirus, or Covid-19, more accurately, has done severe damage, both on the health and finances of people, businesses, hospitals, and entire nations. This book will focus on some of those horrific stories. Some of these things may have slightly inaccurate numbers, as is often the case with the news, and some may be exaggerated, but just understand that there's usually an element of truth in each, and that those consequences aren't to be overlooked. 
      
    I have devoted this book to be somewhat of a one-sided image: The terrible effects of the virus. I don't think many people would appreciate it very much if I were to describe any supposed good effects from the pandemic. And perhaps there are some people who have benefitted from this global crisis, but that's not the mission of this book. 
      
    If you can handle the truth, or at least part of the truth, I encourage you to take a look at the contents of this book. Some facts are shocking, others have been predictable, and maybe some are too dramatic, but the estimations, reports, and historical details in this book are all to help you gain a better perspective.
