What did you love best about Criminal Psychology: Bolinda Beginner Guides?
This is an excellent source for learning about the specifics of criminal behavior. For example, I now understand why an instructor from a homicide investigation class repeatedly used the phrase "we covet what we see." It's related to the term "distance decay" and explains why offenders commit crimes near their homes.
The book also adds balance against the nonfiction books written by, and about, professional criminal profilers. Come to think of it, if profilers are so successful, why are there still so many unsolved crimes?
The point is, there is no perfect solution, formula or science for neutralizing criminal conduct. However, this book is an excellent tool for those who want to understand why we do what we do.
What other book might you compare Criminal Psychology: Bolinda Beginner Guides to and why?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Criminal Psychology is one of the few technical audio books that I truly enjoyed; however, now that I’ve listened to it, I’ll have to get the hard copy version so I can make notes and use it as a reference. The variety and range of examples made the concepts relatively easy to understand. It was also nice to contrast this work with my research on terrorist organizational behavior (ISBN-13: 978-0615687391). There are many possible correlations between the psychology of criminals (or forensic psychology of terrorist leaders) and the profiling of terrorist organizations. I recommend this book to those interested in the behaviors of individuals, as well as groups, particularly as an alternate reference when researching terrorism.
