This is a technical collection, geared mainly at clinicians, and it's very solid. I felt my residency training was pretty lacking on forensic psychiatry subjects, and this book was very helpful, especially as it goes into detail about the differences between DSM personality disorders, and the system that gave rise to the psychopathy label.

Highly technical and definitely not for anyone who has not read on the topic before or read a great deal of psychology research. Some papers are a waste, but some other papers are really good: I admired Harris & Rice 2006, and especially their careful analysis/takedown of the Salekin meta-analysis.
