Destination Truth: Memoirs of a Monster Hunter by Josh Gates

From Goodreads: “World adventurer and international monster hunter Josh Gates has careened through nearly 100 countries, investigating frightening myths, chilling cryptozoological legends, and terrifying paranormal phenomena. Follow Gates from the inception of the groundbreaking hit show (at the summit of Kilimanjaro) to his hair-raising encounters with dangerous creatures in the most treacherous locations on earth. Part journey into the unexplained, part hilarious travelogue, part fascinating look at the making of a reality-based TV show – and featuring never-before-published photographs – this Destination Truth companion takes readers on the supernatural expedition of a lifetime.”

Goodreads rating: 4.46 stars

From Betty Anne: “I was ready to dismiss this book as a regurgitation of the TV show contents, but I am thankful I had confidence in Josh being above and beyond that, because he definitely went above and beyond. This book is not only a fascinating look into his life as a world traveler, it should almost be considered required reading for anyone traveling outside the country – because even with his experience, he still made mistakes, and he lays them out for everyone to see and discusses how truly wrong they could have gone, all while keeping his trademark humor that gets a chuckle or laugh on nearly every page. Even if you’re not into the paranormal, this is a definite must-read.”
