Reviews - What do customers think about Murder by Numbers: Perspectives On Serial Sexual Violence?
The author knows his stuff. Mar 10, 2007
I had the unique pleasure of meeting the author at a seminar on this topic. His skill and perceptions are second to none. A great look into the mind of these individuals.
A dissenting review. Nov 5, 2004
After seeing all five star reviews of this book, I anticipated the work would be exceptional. I was sorely disappointed. While the author relates interesting tales of his encounters with homicidal individuals, his writing is on par with that of a college freshman. Don't expect well written sentences or precise use of psychiatric terminology. The book is in desperate need of professional editing. I suggest you shop around before spending your money on this one.
Scary but good to know..... Apr 16, 2004
After reading Murder By Numbers, I discovered serial murderers seem normal on the outside and co-exist in the public moreso than one would expect. Not only that, but as a woman and mother of two daughters, the chapter on Stalking provided beneficial information on how to avoid and handle the situation if it arises. I highly recommend this book for anyone living in a narcissistic society in this day and age of terrorism, cults, and twistedness.
Good prospective insight May 2, 2002
The author seems to have a good feel for the subject and keeps the reader interested in the subject. Good reading.
