Definitely a worthwhile read, especially as an alternative to a lot of the offerings out there. Turvey insists on the primacy of the scientific method in criminal investigation, and the importance of deduction over induction.

Excellent resource for authors of suspense and mystery fiction. The price is on the high side, but the book is well worth the cost. A keeper.

A very good survey of criminal profiling theory and methods. Part of the quality of the book comes from the breadth and depth of the contributors that Turvey brings in, but another reason for the book's quality stems from Turvey's personal interest in the subject, the reason for which he details in the introduction. This is a great book for anyone looking for a thorough overview of the subject, as well as an in-depth examination for professions.

Seems all right. Kind of boring. Very, very technical. The author's opinion on pioneering individuals in the field of criminal profiling is made clear to the reader. I never like it when an author references himself or his opinions and theories in a text - just give me the facts, please - and I think that's a big part of the reason why I don't really care for this. Can't imagine I'll finish it. Cool pictures, though.

So confusing!!!! Will update when I finish. Right now however I think the author is horrible and contradictory. I am reading this for a class and I am getting irritated with this...well this is what it is but I disagree and this is the fault of blah blah blah...
