Basically I didn't learn anything new about the most media reported serial killers i.e. Green River, Bundy, etc. But did get more details about the other killers from the 70's and 80's and learned about the some of the International serial killers crimes and history.

Unsettling content as you would expect. Good historical overview but little information on methods/ science on how they were tracked down. Also put a very dim light on law enforcement forces pretty much everywhere. They would either catch them for other crimes and slap their hands and let them go or know they were guilty of serious crimes think they were magically cured and release them. A lot of people died unnecessarily for their cluster F's, not that theirs is an easy Job for little pay.
