Psychological Offender Profiling


...It doesn’t tell you very much about profiling, it is extremely hard to read, and the English grammar is poor....

This book opens on a photo of a woman holding a gun pointed at the reader, yet what made the most impression on me was the standard of English: it is dreadful.

Some standouts include:

“Among the oldest the most significant uses of offender profiling in the united kingdom.” Which is a complete sentence on the first page. In some cases the wording is in poor taste, particularly given they are talking about murder victims.

It talks about 1982’s train murders and rapes in London, but fails to state how the profiler helped catch the culprit, what they did or actually mention anything else apart from them calling a profiler in.

This reads like a set of disconnected essays. It doesn’t tell you very much about profiling, it is extremely hard to read, and the English grammar is poor. I really don’t know who the audience for this is, as it is a little basic for anyone truly interested in profiling, so it is very hard to suggest an audience for it.

I finished it, but I’m honestly not sure how much of the grammar I followed.

Aw, it's too bad that the review for this book is poor, I got excited when I saw the title. I think this could have been a great read if it actually offered what it said it did.
