    While there are personalities as the author describes these are the habitual and career criminals who have a very extreme level of narcissism Whether sociopathic or extremely narcissistic they are functionally very much alike He does tend to lump all criminal activity into this category at least in the way he has presented his argument I find the work shallow and incompleteHis section on terrorists is actually very inaccurate He admits to have no personal experience with this and relies on a few works by other people in attempting to apply his theory to this area It does not work He misses much in the way of accurate data even lacking in sufficient anecdotes to support his theoryI can't recommend this book

    This book opens up on a new perspective on how criminals think It uite surprised me at the end because for criminals crime comes inside their minds as thoughts as easily as for example wanting a sweet when on a diet and the author urges criminals to control their thoughts because it is the only way they can truly change their behavior Based on what I've come to learn and see so far this book hits the nail with the hammer regarding the mental process and psyche of a criminal This book is absolutely stunning

    This is a book everyone should read I first read it back in college ca 1985 while studying Engineering and found it to be an eye opener I bought the revised edition because well it's a book that deserves reading twice The author uses case histories to illustrate how the criminal thinks and what is important to him This book helped me to banish from my thinking some of the pervasive myths about criminal behavior I had absorbed I don't work in law enforcement nor in any related field so for me the best remembered lesson from the book is that the choices I make matter and why making good ones is so important

    The book describes various types of criminal behavior that have the same selfish thought processes Focus is on criminals that get caught and choose or refuse to change However criminals that don't get caught due to having powerful positions or cunning are not discussed It seems most people have criminal thoughts and the only thing thing that separates them from those that are labeled as criminals is acting on the criminal thoughts The basic premise of the book is valid but the analysis is incomplete

    This book is a great insight from the opposition of what we've been conditioned to It will introduce theories and facts that you probably never considered It will give you an insight of how we've come about to where we are in the studies of the criminal mind and it's conclusions I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to understand the dysfunctions of some individuals and you might even learn something about yourself

    It is simply the best book I've read on the subject Forget about self pity and all the excuses what is needed to habilitate a criminal is a 180 degree shift in thinking errors as the author explains Anything less than that will not make a dent in a criminal's personality I was particularly touched by Leroy's story at the end of the book and Dr Yochelson's death at that specific point in Leroy's life brought tears to my eyesHighly recommended reading

    I think its a comprehensive account of the criminal mind but I am wondering if by criminal he is referring to Psychopathy or Anti Social Behaviour disorders which are very similar to the descriptions in this bookI'm also dubious about the way in which he describes drug use some of the information I feel was not written from experience whic will be clear to anyone that has experience in this field He is very unforgiving to those that suffer with addiction as a disease he implies that this idea does not exist and that someone with a criminal mind will take advantage of this theoryBut all in all worth reading however I think he should have seen the similarities between Psychopathy and The criminal mind and confronted the differences somewhere within the book


  10. says:

    While a fascinating book about the thinking that characterizes the criminal mind and how a changing in thinking is the only way to change criminal behavior all by itself this book's great value for everyone is to help identify errors in our very own thinking so that we can have a better opportunity to improve ourselves and our lives by first identifiying and then not falling into related kinds of thinking errors
