Recommends it for: anyone with an interest in aberrant psychology
I actually bought this book and a few others like it because I was doing research for a story. All in all, if you have an interest in aberrant psychology, this book is a must have. It starts out with the more clinical aspects of serial killers, dispelling a lot of misconceptions along the way, and ends up with case studies. All very iteresting without being overly dry.

I was trying to write a story about a serial killer. And I've always had a mild fascination with them. Nonetheless, this book fucked my shit up. I fell apart. One bad night.
