Reviews - Loch Ness - Published 2006. Available in English or German.

"After thirty three years of active investigation and numerous scientific papers, this is the first popular publication by leading reseacher Adrian Shine. In its 32 pages he manages to cover the loch's evolution and history over the past 400 million years, it's fauna and flora and the myths and legends that grew up around it before giving a fascinating description of the Loch Ness Project's work and findings.
You will find the important events in the evolving story of Loch Ness and it's monster accurately described - some for the first time - ranging between Saint Columba in 565 AD and the finding of an 80 foot fishing vessel and some 120,000 year old marine shells in the loch in 2002, and covering Marmaduke Wetherell, Tim Dinsdale, the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau and every other significant event in between.
Adrian Shine's extremely readable booklet measures 9.75 by 6.75 inches and like Doctor Who's TARDIS contains much more than one would expect. Including over 40 colour illustrations, it is both an ideal "primer" for newcomers to the subject while also holding some surprises for the most veteran of cryptozoologists.

Quite simply, this is the best new booklet on Loch Ness for forty years".

"Just recieved my copy of Adrian Shine's "LOCH NESS" book, and it is everything I hoped it would be. It is very good to see a book about Loch Ness that covers not only the legend but the ecology itself.  The subject on the loch's ecology stands out by and far from other "Loch Ness" books. Another great thing about the book is that it takes a skeptical look at the monster, most other books I've read support the view of a plesiosaur swimming in the loch.  Shine's book is also helping me with a fictional story I'm currently writing about Loch Ness, and I could not have found a better source. Thanks Again.
