Ted Kaczynski, a child math whiz; a lonely student; a college professor; a Thoreau stile hermit; a University (UN) and Airline (A) Bomber. I learned a lot from this book; however; I like my factual stories of this nature in chronological form.

It was a pretty well written book IMO. I'm not sure I consider him a cereal killer though. To me he was more of a domestic terrorist.
