This is a landmark book in American history and should be required reading for anyone with even a passing interest in criminal justice. Wilson's seminal work changed forever the delivery of police services to the public. This book stood conventional wisdom on it's head and provided the template for criminal justice reforms for the past 40 years.

A classic. If you want to learn read this book.

I don't actually like or agree with this author and I think many of his points have some significant (intentional) gaps and oversights. I only read this because it's a topic I read about frequently and I needed this for a class. It is very dry reading.

It is a crime that this indispensable book is out of print.

Boring, there is no need to read past the first few chapters, all of the main points are repeated in the second half.
