He has hunted some of the most notorious and sadistic criminals of our time: The Trailside Killer in San Francisco, the Atlanta Child murderer. He has confronted, interviewed and researched dozens of serial killers and assassins -- including Charles Manson, Richard Speck, John Wayne Gacy, and James Earl Ray -- for a landmark study to understand their motives. To get inside their minds.
He is Special Agent John Douglas, the model for law enforcement legend Jack Crawford in Thomas Harris's thrillers Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs, and the man who ushered in a new age in behavorial science and criminal profiling. Recently retired after 25 years of service, John Douglas can finally tell his unique and compelling story.
With journalist Mark Olshaker, he gives us a behind the scenes look at his fascinating career, revisiting his journeys into the dark recesses and calculated madness present only in our worst nightmares. This is the true-crime work everyone has been waiting for -- by the Mind Hunter himself.

Abridging this makes it almost pointless.
Yes but not if it is abridged.
The abridged version robs it of any intricacies. It really takes away the depth of what's going on here.
He sounds professional and sincere.
Double check and make sure i am not purchasing the abridged version.
I don't see how it was a good idea to truncate this. It is such a deep and involved subject matter. Its not a story. So how can you just leave out parts of the picture?

Need the unabridged version!
For true crime buffs, this is a must read. This is the guy who created the Behavioral Science Unit at Quantico (though it's called something else now, this is the most recognizable title). Definitely recommend this for anyone interested in criminal profiling, FBI, law enforcement, serial killers, and again, true crime.
I really, really wish there were an unabridged version of this.
