This book seemed to be based on a lot of speculation and not many facts. I don't have any doubt that Scott Peterson is guilty as sin, but this man can't possibly know what's going on inside Scott Peterson's mind unless he has done extensive psychotherapy with him, which he hasn't.

Seems to me that Ablow simply wanted to throw in his 2 cents worth.

This really was a different book about Scott Peterson. It really does what the title says and helps you understand what was going on in his mind. Very interesting!

This book is interesting, but quite an awful lot of conjecture and over-dramatic prose.

A chilling description of what a "contributing forensic psychiatrist on Court TV"--Keith Ablow--believes concerning Scott Peterson's character breakdown, which led to the murder of his wife and unborn son. Not only is this book frightening, but immensely sad throughout; the case is very believably made that Scott's family contributed mightily to his psychological demise. Certainly gives one pause if you are a parent, as to how we (sometimes thoughtlessly) shape our children's psyches when they are young and impressionable--and how we can avoid the result of a "Scott" in our own families. A compelling, tragic book.

After reading five other books on this subject, I was a little disappointed in the information that this book brought out. I expected more revalations into the mind of Scott Peterson. An Interesting read though and did bring up some facts that I was unaware of. The fact of so many pregnant women being murdered by their own husbands or family members being the main cause of death of a pregnant woman was astounding to me. If you are interested in this case, I would have to say this a must read, even if it does fall a little short of actual information.
