This review is from: The Evil 100 (Paperback)
The book is clearly not the most reliable source, but reliability is hard to come by when authors are dealing with biographies of some lunatics like Gaskins, Dahmer, and so on. In fact, there are so many sources online that will contradict another source three more times.
As far as the book, the set up is easy. It is a page turner. I found it to be extremely entertaining. Partially, I am giving this book good review because I was not looking for detailed specifics. You cannot ever do. The Evil 100 is just like some of these books that you read about kids who kill their parents, or kids who kill. Unreliable, but fiction-like entertaining.
I recommend it for a good entertaining read and as a good first time reference/direction. It is as addictive as wikipedia despite its unreliable information.
