Brent's notes: Everything you want to know about the process of evidence based criminal profiling, explained with thorough, competent, applied, critical reasoning. Written for use in the classroom and in the field, easily the most comprehensive, multi-disciplinary criminal profiling textbook written to date.

This is not a collection of war stories, or a memoir. It is a textbook and a manual, detailing the deductive method of criminal profiling as developed by the author. The largest portion of material in this work is original, and can be found nowhere else.

Kids Who Kill
by Charles Patrick Ewing
Reprint Edition Mass Market Paperback
Published by Avon
Publication date: April 1995

Brent's notes: If you haven't seen Dr. Ewing on Investigative Reports' "Juvenile Justice," then you've missed out. He's a very lone voice of reason on that report. He talks a lot about how children are just that, not full adults, and that they should not be held accountable for their actions, and when they do terrible things we should take responsibility for them, but more specifically their parents should. I find myself in agreement with that. And that we should look for solutions that attack the problem of juvenile violence before it develops.

Synopsis: A top forensic psychologist presents a shocking examination of the lives and crimes of today's youngest killers. Children and teenagers are responsible for over 10% of the nation's homicides. This startling book explores the psychology, causes, and motives behind their unspeakable acts. HC: Lexington Books.
