I forgot that I had read this and when I went to add this on here this review popped up I read to page 168 and gave up in the end Not for meOriginal review A serial killer's actions derive from a complex interplay among three basic factors specific cultural conditions individual processing of those conditions and opportunity25This is another one where I take the thesis statement and review the book from that I find that with non fiction books that have a definitive thesis it's the easiest way to review the book See if they proved it like you have to in any essay about somethingSadly I didn't feel like Ramsland actually proved it She did a good job of opportunity and front loading the readier with lots of killers from different times and diverse killings The earlier chapters actually had a set thing that they were talking about I thought the best chapter in the whole book was one that actually tied in all three pieces that she talked about which was one that involved the beast within killers and the myths of werewolves and vampires She perfectly combined the conditions of the culture aka religion and the way people processed the conditions through their own mental illnessesThe rest of the book didn't go that way thoughReally Ramsland basically threw together paragraphs where she talked about what was going on in the world at that time then ones that talked about different killers in the same time period as what was going on and finally a dotting of forensic investigation This really could have been two books One about the forensics and one that involved the history of serial murder It was too much to combine into one cohesive bookWithout the explanation of why the serial killer was chosen made it hard to see how the certain time period influenced the killer to do that Personally I don't even think that the times can make someone do something terrible Even in happy places where nothing is wrong there are still serial killers around That doesn't matter What does matter is the way the killer manipulates what the culture is to fit around his own mental illness because all serial killers are mentally ill it just depends on if they understand what they did or didn't doThe reason I bumped this up to three stars is because that it was so diverse with the different killers Women and men Shooters poisoners asphyxiation So many different types though it was about men towards the end since women killers aren't as publicized any at least from what I've noticed in the trends Every murderer is assumed to be a man first then it either happens that the perpetrator is a man which usually happens or it's a shocking discovery when they find that a pretty woman is doing it

Seems like anybody who ever famously killed anybody was included in here Sweet uick and to the point Mostly interesting and just fine BUTIt was all good until the end when the author spells Beats instead of Beatles or says 300000 people were killed in Colombia during something called La Violencia That was supposed to be 200000 over the span of 10 years but still why include that when it just dwarfs the rest of the perps she's describing She even includes Hitler Just a little broadLost interest when she couldn't even spell Josefina Gutiérrez She put Josephina GuttiériezTwenty three hundred police involved in an urgent investigation during the early 60s for a black student doesn't pass the BS test
