    1. This book was a requirement for one of my classes, but I found that it was quite interesting. While it can be disturbing to learn about the actions SK's take, the knowledge I gained was useful from an educational stance.I never appreciated how many typologies exist among serial murderers until I read this book. It also shocked me by putting to rest some of the myths surrounding serial killers! For instance: Apparently the belief that there are very few female serial killers is inaccurate! The re [...]

    2. This book is kind of boring and repetitive. I am a criminal justice major so this is the kind of stuff I love reading about but not the way Hickey writes about it.

    3. Almost feel bad for alot of these people. You take the sickest, most depraved sexual criminal you can find, and trust me, there's a back story to why he is the way he is. That's what this book is mostly about. How these guys (and girls) get to be the way they are. Classifications of psychopath. Case studies here and there for examples are obviously the juiciest part. Otherwise, it's very clinical and for educational purposes only. But still very enjoyable.

    4. Assigned as a textbook for a serial killers university course. While the segments with stories of serial killers were fascinating, as this subject is, the writing and organization left me wanting. Very, very poorly organized, especially as a textbook. Also the book is sadly lacking in diverse language. Would not recommend.

    5. Great book. I had to read it for a class but found it to be interesting It as one text book i read every chapter and read ahead of class.

    6. I mean, this is a textbook, but it's pretty interesting as textbooks go in the most morbidly fascinating way. I would've enjoyed it a lot more if I didn't have barrel through it for my class.
