Though not very well written, the stories of American mass killers and their victim-survivors are harrowing, cautionary, and compelling. I'm not going to lie - I'm the biggest bleeding-heart, whale-smooching, tree-hugging liberal hippie moon maiden, but this book made me want to go right out and (legally) buy a gun. It wasn't so much the horror of the actual attacks, though they were all gory and brutal; it was the fact that they happened in public locations where all of us go all the time, like restaurants, and college campuses, and they were so random and freakish and bizarre and devastating. If you're still naive enough to think that as long as you avoid dark alleys at night and are nice to the loner kids at school, you'll be fine, this book will shatter that illusion.

Seriously, yikes.
