3.0 out of 5 stars Dated but interesting March 19, 2014

Yes, some of the book was boldly dated and even blatantly false but it was a good historical look at what people thought about the origins of crime in the late nineteenth century.

The language in this book is just as crisp, precise, and edifying as when it was written over 100 years ago, and provides excellent historical context to the modern understanding of forensics and criminal profiling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written znd interesting May 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was informative and interesting but I found it to be more one persons poimt of view on criminals than just about what make them tick. I guess I was just expecting something different. It was informative though. I really don't agree with his idea of punishimg them but trying to correct them before they become criminals though. The author came off soundimg like he was aganst punishment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for First Year Psyclogiest. December 31, 2013

This is not something to read if you are new to the field. It reads like an doctor's manual. This book is better for college seniors and doctor.

This is a historical document of criminology. The topic, study of the cranium, isn't so popular in our time. I assume this work from the 19th century is out of print. For professionals reading it can be stimulating. I don't know if his findings were debunked. I cannot view this as a physician or professional sociologist. I'd recommend it to anybody interested in this area of learning. It does make you think and wonder about the criminals depicted so often on documentaries showing the criminals themselves.

Criminal Sociology by Enrico Ferri is a good book about how human behavior can play a part in criminality. The author describing important psychological factors that can contribute to a criminals actions. The book is an oldy but goody. I would definitely recommend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Book Review September 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too heavy for reading. I was lost for a lot of it as it didn't catch my interest. A lot of what the writer was saying in terms of social , mental and environment impact would be major factrors but i found there was too much repetition. No it was not a book for me
