Publisher's Summary

Jeffrey Dahmer, committing his first murder with a fear of being left alone, then went on luring young boys and keeping souvenirs of their skulls. Ted Bundy, who appeared to be a generous and charming young man with a brilliant future, started with a petty crime and worked his way up to the murder of young women. John Wayne Gacy was a pillar of the community, organizing themed block parties and entertaining as Pogo the Clown, but his early transgressions began to take on more and more sinister forms. A chilling but engrossing listen, The World's Most Evil Psychopaths provides a concise, yet detailed look at some of the most dangerous individuals who have ever lived. Starting with examples of the earliest recorded psychopaths, author John Marlowe presents a carefully chosen cross-section of history's most infamous criminals.

Misleading title.Word "Psychopath" used for sales.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Depends. If they wanted to know about history's murderers, then yes; however, the title implies that it will be discussing "Psychopaths." If it were to discuss this topic, it would be a resounding "No."

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It is a very dark book. When finished, one would have to question whether humanity actually exists. It does seem to be fairly well researched.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was just fine.

Do you think The World's Most Evil Psychopaths needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It is up-to-date. Let's hope that it never needs an update (more murderers).

Could listen to this guy for hours!

Love the narrator and it's a true story so it was also terrible in that way....Eric is like music in my ears! Don't know what it is but he ranks up there with Bill Kurtis!! Now THAT'S a great voice to listen to! This book is gruesome and educating and frightening and I would listen to it again,.......and again......and..
