    1. I have an uneasy obsession with crime. If you're with me this book will explain what to look for in order to catch a criminal. Not that I will ever apply this knowledge unless I am watching Criminal Minds. . .


    2. Lots and lots of case histories here, but I found the book a bit lacking, and it was organized in a confusing way. It definitely packs a lot of visuals, but it ends up looking more cluttered than informative.


    3. Very interesting and fascinating but not incredibly organized nor well written. Second to last case was like the summary but then a piece about suicide bombers was last and ended abruptly & didn't feel well tied in to the rest of the book.Sometimes there were introductory sentences that were not followed up by the completion of the thought. Luckily, I was happy to read about the psychology behind it all so was glad to overlook the loose and not always totally coherent writing style.There wer [...]


    4. This was a good book. I loved the layout of it all and the pictures with the captions were cool as well. I've read better books but I highly enjoyed the case studies.


    5. It was an interesting books and it showed me how profilers draw up an image of the killer, but it was at time slow. Overall, I'm glad I read it, it taught me a lot about FBI profiling


    6. An informative read on serial killers, their method of killing and how they were eventually caught (or not). The book breaks it down into several sections outlining how a criminal profiler would use information gathered at the scene of the crime to compose a picture of who the criminal could be. It gives a lot of basic backgrounds on a lot of killer. There are a lot of the well known ones (such as Dalmer, Jack the Ripper and others) as well as lesser known killers. It's a great book if you want [...]


    7. The book was shocking. It made me realize that "Criminal Minds" might reflect reality. I thought that TV serial creators were trying to cause sensation and rubbed it in. Knowing about all those killers depressed me and brought some paranoia. Anyway, the book is good as an introduction to profiling. It explains in concise, very systematic and clear way logical premises of this part of criminology.


    8. This book is disturbing. fascinating but very disturbing, threre are some photos, but it was so interesting, it is so hard to grasp the way the serial killers think. its a very good book. if your easily grossed out i would not reccommend it but if your not, go for it!


    9. This really helped my profiling research! The cases interest me so much, it made me realize that this is definitely the career for me!
