2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 25, 2011
By Lisa
Format:Kindle Edition
I feel ripped off. This book includes much of the same info as the author's other book about the houses of death.

I also found myself skipping several pages or chapters relating to Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and others in that section because the author focuses way too much on the politics instead of the crimes and that bores me to death. That section did help me fall asleep tho...and is cheaper than a bottle of Tylenol PM.

I won't be buying anymore by this author. He just uses the same material from one book to the next. Wish I knew that before wasting my money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intro to Psychopaths 101 June 11, 2012
By luxbwin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do not know what I was expecting. I thought maybe I would learn a little bit more about each of the crazy people in this non-fiction book. It is really just a primer to psychopaths. It had very little new content; however, if you are curious about the topic and do not want to get too gruesome, this is the book for you. I was entertained, but my mind was not blown. I found myself continually reading each chapter and using wikipedia for more information.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looking into the Darkside September 11, 2012
By kimm65
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very insightful and quite well written. The selection of characters the author chose to write about was diverse and I feel that he was able to give the reader the opportunity to possibly understand what the lives of these people were like and perhaps even what triggered the violent urges they had to kill. Over all I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading this genre.

The writing was odd, but overall I found it interesting. There were some I hadn't heard of before, many I had but it held my attention. I will add it to my serial killer book collection. Maybe ill even read it again someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for law enforcement officers of all types! March 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book with the soul purpose of studying the psychopaths mind. Understanding how twisted ones mind can become can eliminate the threat to others. This book examines many people, how when they appeared normal, where in reality abnormal. The True Crime series explores many of these aspects and more. A must for the curious as well as the professional. I highly rate this book and you will too once you delve into these articles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Evil Psychopaths - Evil being the key word. February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's hard to believe there are people with such sick minds walking amongst us, but unfortunately the National/nightly news seems to be bringing this fact out more & more as time goes on. A very well written, worryingly factual book.

This just goes to show you how much evil there is in this world. How can we all get along if we kill for pleasure. We need to have God in our lives or we all are going to hell.

I like expose's and biographies but I don't think the wartime leaders should be placed in the same category as serial killers. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Only slightly interesting - kinda boring
Like my subject title says, I found the book only slightly interesting - it was mostly only about the details of their killings and how many people they killed - nothing analytical... Read more
