A very insightful, informative and well-researched account of the Columbine massacre. This book took ten years to write and research, and is the definitive and complete account of the trajedy. It tells us what really happened and why, and dispells some of the most common myths surrounding the trajedy. It also delivers a close-up and chilling physcopathological portrait of two differently motivated teenage killers. The technique that the author uses of going back and forth in time can be a little confusing at times, because people and events that are mentioned earlier are not always explained until later, but overall it was effective. A must-read.
