My sister bought this as required material for one of her college courses. I have to say I was disappointed and largely unimpressed. Many of the entries come across as poorly researched, while some are just downright incorrect.
I would instead suggest "The Dictionary of Demons: Names of the Damned" by Michelle Belanger.
