This book was fascinating. It was actually related to the book I read in November about murderers for my research paper. A friend recommmended this to me after they read my paper. Turns out, this book inspired the theories by one of the books I used as a reference. If murder and/or psychology intrigues you, this is a very interesting theory.

The author's theory is as good as any other and better than most. I would have ranked the book higher if it were more readable. It read like a dry college textbook and wasn't very entertaining.
