Interesting read. Lots of information and nicely presented. It gives a good overview of a serial killer.
Repeats same sentences and tells you mainly about famous killers but not really their psychology other than a rough childhood can cause someone to be a killer.
In the beginning the book does say something along the lines of "this hasn't been written by professionals, don't sue us, if you carry out any action as described in this book we will not be held accountable" ...when I heard this strange legal disclaimer I swiftly assumed there was probably going to be a lack of genuine scientific insight but I listened all the same. It is interesting and did hold my attention, although it's 45 minutes long, so....it should do. It was a pleasant 'read' but nothing ground breaking or new. One thing I wasn't impressed about though is how an author can write a psychology book and have 5 citations; couple from a blog, Reuters news, one a biography website and the last one.....Wikipedia....seriously, Wikipedia. No peer reviewed scientific journals what so ever, minimal effort made really. Just....Wikipedia?! I don't know if I'm more irked that the author used Wikipedia or that the author thought it was okay to tell us he had used Wikipedia. May as well have not bothered listing the citations in all honesty.
