Free download Ú The Dragon Keepers Handbook 102 Here be Dragons Not the slavering whimsical monsters from childhood fancies but real Dragons fierce complex wondrous and wild They do not reuire our belief; they never have With hard science and myth empirical wisdom and original line drawings The Dragon Keeper's Handbook is the draconic enchiridion for the modern world pr The only reason I forced myself through this was for research and I learnt what not to put or rather what not to keep out in my dragon book For this I give it two starsThis book fares little better than its watered down For Beginners version The same obnoxious know it all patronising tone is still around bringing along some accusatory anti human statements Rather this was published first and didn t change for someone who s supposedly of a newbie to dragons which is what the For Beginners version is geared towardsAs with the newer version we see some pretty amazing ability to criticise some common myth of dragons yet are provided no faux scientific fact to support the opposite of the stated myth This lack of fact makes this a very poor handbook as good handbooks have than enough information sometimes to the point of trivia and I d not recommend it to any dragon enthusiast real or fictionalThe addition of lore and illustrations make this a bit easier to swallow but not by much The real shame in this piece comes from standing back a bit the dragons look the same within the breed of the three species that is have the same habits eat the same thing and do not vary much at all despite living in vastly different regions and living a very long time This is a direct opposite to the realty of life on Earth where these fictional non fiction dragons still live according to the author All life on Earth even within the same genus is so varied it s sometimes unfathomable to the mind Why should these dragons suffer something different Even with minimilisation caused by human encroachment this half history book should still have listed some extinct extremely varied dragonsyet does not Though I suppose the name dropping of certain dragons counts but the author never goes into themThe lack of imagination in this book yet the author touting being a dragon expert giving info one piece at a time to the inexperienced reader is almost insulting when happy and eager learners find this book I may be biased to paracosms but even if so this seems to be awfully lacking for what is deemed a handbook Handbooks are typically concise and have information laid out in easy to find sections because of the mystical nature to which the author euates dragons this book lacks that organisation As another reviewer put it some very important info seems to be missing such as what to expect ofdo with your dragon s leavings Even simple dog handbooks have this common informationAs an aside and this doesn t happen as often as it should but masters and professors and teachers should be wise enough to know the people learning sometimes have no clue about things and should be willing to give information free from bias generalisations and assumptions The author fails on all fronts and makes for a terrible teacher of the matter Never learn from someone who withholds information and gives it to you tainted with opinionI m disappointed in both the author s dragon books but perhaps in this one where the author had a true chance to go crazy and make a beautiful world of dragons by way of initial publication In the end it falls sadly short and I recommend anything but either of the books as a starting point for a dragon aficionado
