When I purchased this book, I was looking for an in depth psychological analysis of school shootings, but what I got was fairly superficial.
The first 8 chapters just recounted various school shootings, while the last chapter is the only one that even tried to address the why and how to prevent them. I felt like I spent 8 chapters waiting to get to the meat of it and then they only gave me a bacon bit. There were some really good assertions in those chapters but they were never really explored for example, suppressed homosexuality, which was mentioned a few times and is an interesting concept given the role it played in the recent Orlando shootings.
If you know nothing about school shootings, this will update you on all the famous American ones. If you are already a crime buff and are looking for a piece on criminal psychology, keep looking.

Particularly in the light of recent events, this book provides an excellent professional analysis of the dynamics involved in mass shootings.
Very disturbing, but educational. A must read for anyone who wants to engage with others in a meaningful debate regarding reasonable gun reform laws!
