  • Ceremonial Violence: Understanding Columbine and Other School Rampage Shootings

    Story
    (8)

    Analyzes 13 school “rampage” shootings—including the Columbine High School massacre—and explains, for the first time, why teenagers commit these tragic atrocities. With his grasp of the elements of abnormal psychology, developmental psychology, sociology, and neurology that contribute to the homicidal mindset, Fast offers us a means of understanding and coming to terms with these shootings, and provides examples of what we should look for as early signs to prevent further tragedies.

    Jennifer says: "Great Author and Content, Sub-par Performance"

    Where does Ceremonial Violence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I know some errors are due to the editor not paying attention, but the narrator need take a "cliffs notes" lesson in the stories they read. One moment he pronounces the boy's name McKay and then Makai (as it should be) and then three words later back to McKay. Same with Cassie, apparently her name is Casey.


    Any additional comments?

    There were quite a few errors in the shootings I know a lot about, so the stories that I'm not familiar with, I'm not sure I can count on the facts, being facts. Such as, Columbine happened on Tuesday, April 20th, 1999 and not Monday, April 20th 1999. Also, Dylan Klebold was the one who used the Tec-9 during the shooting, not Eric Harris. There were far too many details to list all of them, but if you are familiar with any of these shootings, you will see.

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    Larry says: "What a great book."
    "Amazing"

    This was a recommendation, by my father and I'm really glad I took the time to listen. I wasn't alive when Sharon, Jay, Voytek, Abigail, Steven, Rosemary, Leno and of course baby Paul were murdered, but I grew up with a fear of the word

    It was the trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?

    Any additional comments?

    It gives some good background info and there were a few things I didn't know. If you watched the entire case unfold on t.v. you might get a bit bored at times, but keep going.
