"Excellent book, I have used this for my Criminal Behavior course for a number of years. Very authoritative."
Looking at a range of crimes and historical profiling and how this is carried out and to what ends, a great book to aid psychology a,d personalty profiling.
This is a really interesting book written by authors with clear expertise in the area. Although I enjoyed the book, the approach is not quite suitable for my undergraduate audience who would have to try to apply the theoretical frameworks they are being taught to the content. It does provide some really useful case studies though which will be useful for students who want a better understanding of core topics. I will add this to their supplementary reading list though as I think students will find the book very accessible.
This book was found to be very practical and applicable to the subject field. This book is easy to read and understand and will most definitely add value to students registering for all investigation of crime modules and forensic investigation modules. This book will most definitely be recommended to the University of South Africa Library as well as the library of the South African Police Services.
This book is a phenomenal read. i found it very interesting and the information was clear and easy to read for all levels of learners. specifically the psychological theories for profiling criminals was very usual and has been adopted. Also it has been placed on the essential reading list.
An interesting read with some high profile cases
Text is right on topic for the class I am developing. Easy to read, easy to follow and extremely informative.
An engaging book, with some high profile case studies make this an interesting read.
The "science" of profiling crimes is examined in a US context that is both historical and contemporaneous context. There are very good examples and insightful observations upon the subject matter.
