When I bought this book I guess I was expecting more. I have a degree in criminal justice and actually took classes in profiling as well as serial killers and mass murder. The book sort of read like someone who was writing a paper for school. I ended up donating it to the library by my house. It’s not something I would keep on myself as a reference. And I feel bad saying it because I’m sure the writer has a great interest in the subject. It just missed the mark. I feel like the book may have been better if there was an editor to go through and flesh it out. I think this book is OK for someone that really doesn’t know anything about this subject and is just looking for something to read. There are far better books out there though.
I'm obsessed with Hannibal Lecter even though I'm somewhat scared... Damien Woods sheds a light on how the mind of a serial killer works and how he (or she) operates. Fascinating read, well written and definitely a book I will recommend to friends!
Not only do I now know how to tell by looking at some traits when a person is a psychopath, I can also read a person's past childhood by looking at their behavior. This book is an interesting read about the psychology of a criminal. The stories about boy-serial killers alone is very interesting.
Grab yourself a copy, it makes for an interesting study on psychopaths. Highly recommended for professors of psychology subjects.
