Editorial Reviews

Review

“Julia Shaw has crafted a brilliant panorama that elucidates humanity's dark side in her masterpiece, Evil. This science-based foundation for studying the minds of sadists, mass murderers, freaks and creeps, as well the new role of tech in promoting evil is presented in a totally engaging fashion. For me, it is the other bookend with The Lucifer Effect for understanding the many evils around us (and sometimes in us) along with the monumental evil of mass apathy of doing nothing when we should stand up, speak out, and take wise and effective actions as Everyday Heroes.”
(Philip Zimbardo Ph.D. Professor Emeritus, Stanford University, author of The Lucifer Effect)

"A consistently fascinating journey into the darker sides of the human condition that will push on the boundaries of readers' comfort zones.”
(Kirkus Reviews)

“Stimulating and provocative.”
(Library Journal)
