Violent Mind: The 1976 Psychological Assessment of Ted Bundy Publisher's Summary

In March 1976, Ted Bundy was convicted of the aggravated kidnapping of a young woman near Salt Lake City, Utah. Bundy had not been accused or convicted of any violent crime except this one. No one knew then how many women Bundy had murdered, and many thought him incapable of doing so.

Dr. Al Carlisle was part of a 90-day diagnostic team at the Utah State Prison, where Bundy was sent to after the trial. Dr. Carlisle's assignment was specific: Determine to the best of his ability, without being biased by any of the reports previously done, whether Ted Bundy had a violent personality. The judge would use this information in deciding whether Bundy should serve time or be released on probation. 

In Violent Mind: The 1976 Psychological Evaluation of Ted Bundy, Dr. Carlisle takes the listener step by step through this previously unpublished evaluation process and describes how he concluded that Bundy had the capacity to commit aggravated kidnapping and perhaps much worse. 

Violent Mind contains one-of-a-kind interviews with Ted Bundy and those who knew him, including a letter Bundy wrote to Dr. Carlisle which had been locked away for more than 40 years.
