5.0 out of 5 stars A Marvel of True-Crime Writing, October 7, 2011
In David Gibb's compelling story of Russell Williams, a Canadian Air Force Colonel turned seerial killer, you will find two features absent in almost all True-Crime writing (devoted mostly to "just-the-facts-please"). The first is an elegant literary style you would expect to see only in a most gifted novelist. The second is a penetrating psychological profile of the book's protagonist: a complex man unique in the annals of serial killers. Williams existed in two immiscible pieces: an admired, albeit aloof, commander by day; a cross-dressing, sadistic serial killer by night -- whom no one really knew and who loved only his cat. Momentarily solicitous even in the midst of his sadism, he would fetch a Tylenol to assuage the headache of the woman whose head he had just bashed and whom he was hours later to murder. These night-and-day contrasts are mirrored in Gibb's alternatingly beautiful prose passages and blood-curdling descriptions of Williams' gruesome crimes. Gibbs is the fitting Vergil to guide us through the Hell of Williams' tortured - and torturing - psyche.

5.0 out of 5 stars Einstein's famous formula made understandable, August 14, 2009
I read Professors Cox & Forshaw's new book on Einstein's E = mc2 in one day: I couldn't put it down. I have tried for years to get a handle on the equation and how to think about spacetime, have read many books for the lay public (I am a psychiatry professor, so I am a layman when it comes to physics) -- and this new book is the only one that I could grasp and that really made sense. It's a great tribute to the authors and a great service to the public.

5.0 out of 5 stars Police Torturers Examined, August 27, 2005
An outstanding book, that took courage to put together-- telling with credibility and compassion about the torture to which the Brazilian police & military subjected citizens whom they saw as on the "wrong" side politically. The authors bring to light an evil we thought went out of fashion with the Inquisition -- but here it is again in the 20th century. They make it clear that the propensity to torture is part of the human condition, that comes out in certain times of stress -- and that, sadly, very few people or nations can resist resorting to
