    Them began as a book about different kinds of extremists, but after Jon had got to know some of them - Islamic fundamentalists, neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen - he found that they had one oddly similar belief: that a tiny, shadowy elite rule the world from a secret room. In Them, Jon sets out, with the help of the extremists, to locate that room. The journey is as creepy as it is comic, and along the way Jon is chased by men in dark glasses, unmasked as a Jew in the middle of a Jihad training camp, and more.

    What did you love best about Them: Adventures with Extremists?

    As with all Jon Ronson books, this one was truly pleasurable in audio format—he should offer his services as a professional reader in addition to his writing career. I commend him on his bravery in interacting with “them” and maintaining an unbiased and sometimes amusing (how can you wage Jihad if you can touch a fish), perspective. For me this book was important because it provides a different perspective on my research on terrorist organizational behavior and leadership (ISBN-13: 978-0615687391). While it’s difficult to view the world from the perspective of the extremist, it’s imperative to understanding why they do and behave the way they do. I recommend this book to those interested in the behaviors of individuals and groups, particularly as an alternate reference when researching terrorism.

    How do you deal with those that break the law? If their aim is to evade you, how do you identify them? If their aim is to lie, how do you interview them? If they don't see their actions are wrong, how do you help them to successfully reform? Criminal psychology is the discipline which tackles these challenges head on. From the signals which give away when we’re lying to the psychological profiling of violent offenders, this exhaustive guide, written by the UK’s top experts, is the perfect introduction.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Criminal Psychology is one of the few technical audio books that I truly enjoyed; however, now that I’ve listened to it, I’ll have to get the hard copy version so I can make notes and use it as a reference. The variety and range of examples made the concepts relatively easy to understand. It was also nice to contrast this work with my research on terrorist organizational behavior (ISBN-13: 978-0615687391). There are many possible correlations between the psychology of criminals (or forensic psychology of terrorist leaders) and the profiling of terrorist organizations. I recommend this book to those interested in the behaviors of individuals, as well as groups, particularly as an alternate reference when researching terrorism.
