This book was one of my more interesting texts for my degree in forensic psychology. Douglas's theories don't always agree with the popular thinking, but his logic makes sense once you understand the method. It's interesting reading, until you get to the Ramsey case where his bias gets in the way of following his own method. Some knowledge of the facts of the historical cases helps with the understanding, but the book is definitely written for the popular press. If you like CSI-type stuff you'll probably like this book, although his first book, Mindhunter, was better.
