Found 3rd Nov
FBI Special Agent and expert in criminal profiling and behavioural science, John Douglas, is a man who has looked evil in the eye and made a vocation of understanding it. Now retired, Douglas can let us inside the FBI elite serial crime unit and into the disturbed minds of some of the most savage serial killers in the world.

The man who was the inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs and who lent the film's makers his expertise explains how he invented and established the practice of criminal profiling; what it was like to submerge himself mentally in the world of serial killers to the point of 'becoming' both perpetrator and victim; and individual case histories including those of Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Atlanta child murders.

With the fierce page-turning power of a bestselling novel, yet terrifyingly true, Mindhunter is a true crime classic.

I finished the Netflix series last night, really enjoyed it so definitely looking forward to reading the book. Thanks for posting

In several recent research studies ‘profilers’ were tasked with coming up with a profile for offenders in detected cases using all the evidence that was collected. Their results were compared with four other occupations, police, students, medical professionals and ‘psychics’. There was no statistical difference between the groups. Probably why there are no cases that have actually been solved by profiling

Me and Hubs loved the netflix series so this is definitely worth a read at this price - thanks!

That's not quite correct apa.org/mon…spx

I thought the TV series was brilliant and the psychology of the killers interesting to hear about, regardless of what you think of profiling itself.

Thought the first episode or two were pretty weak...

And then Ed Kemper popped up.

Excellent from then on (although I'm still not convinced the lead can actually act).
