Publisher's Summary

Within a maze of true crime books that tend to provide only minor portions of the whole story, Serial Killers 101 provides a much more detailed and comprehensive insight into the world of some of the most infamous serial killers in American history.

From their births to childhoods to teenagers to adults, this book examines the whole story of each serial killer. Profiled here are:

  • Ted Bundy - the man who gave life to the term serial killer
  • The "hands of death", Henry Lee lucas and Ottis Toole
  • Born-again killer David Berkowitz
  • And many more

Also included in the second half of the book are in-depth interviews with the killers - some of which were their final interviews before their executions.

Disappointed

The book was basically a collection of extremely short interviews not necessarily by the killer. Didn't give much insight to the crimes or the motivation for the crime. I'm going to require a refund.

Worst true crime text--ever!

I enjoy reading true crime and am always on the lookout for something new. This book was especially appealing because it covers so many people and crimes.The organization of the book is interesting and the author has conducted a couple of person-to-person interviews with a few killers. However, where the author goes terrible wrong is in how he writes about the crimes. Mr. Tucker has no reverence for the dead. This is the most unethical reporting I've ever come across. He talks about how Ted Bundy "F*cks" his victims or the "tightness" of a certain child's "a**hole." This book should never have been published. Tucker is the measure of an insensitive reporter. The book's cover is cheesy/tacky and the writing style and language is elementary and sleazy. I wish I could give this book ZERO stars. Simply a waste of time.
