Joel Norris, psychologist, was a leading figure in studying the psychological, social and biological underpinnings of violent behavior, notably serial killers. He also attempted to educate the public, prison officials and law enforcement bodies of the need for early intervention in holding and apprehending violent offenders. Seemingly, even psychology practitioners are offenders at failing to recognize the dangers of a psychopathic personality. Constantly, in his research, he found it apparent that psychopaths' families, and close associates are willingly blind to the potential of these demented men and women, and tragedies result without hinder. Public institutions have poor records many times and release violent criminals into the general population. This book is a reasoning analysis of where we are and how much farther we must go to prevent these horrors in society. It is a horrific read but important to us all to become more knowledgeable in protecting our families and society from similar virulent and dangerous people and their often long-standing violence. He describes and disturbingly notes the "lack of intervention" in these case histories.
