I find profiling very interesting and I love this kind of book. John Douglas has been my favorite author, but his ego is too much on display throughout his books, and especially in this one. I have been waiting for this one because Audible only has the abridged version until recently. I was so excited to read his “best” book, but now that I’ve finished, I think it might have been better to go with the abridged version. If you cut out all the unimportant flattery of himself, the book would only be a 1/3 as long. I would recommend his other books The Anatomy of Motive or The Cases That Haunt us. He discusses mainly the same cases, usually in more detail, and I feel they are more interesting without so many me’s and I’s.

And this one by far was the most interesting to me in terms of cases. One thing about his books , he always takes the first 3 chapters or so ( about 2 hours), talking about his background that gets tedious and I’ll be honest, I usually skip those chapters. This one is no different and even with the loss of the first hour or so, I would still recommend this for the really , juicy, detailed and interesting cases that after his initial bio , seems to be back to back for the next ten hours.
Great book, I’m hard to please and I really liked this one a lot.
