I find forensic sychology absolutely fascinating and this book just fuelled my InterestThe Book Is Well book is well and maps the history of the I was very disappointed in this book many eople were recommending it and seemed to be rating it highly but now I understand that it was trending because of a Netflix show I wanted to learn about forensic investigation and criminal rofiling it seemed with the writers experience who would have a wealth of knowledge but I wasted hours of my time on this book with virtually none of the information I wanted to knowMost of this book is the writer talking about his own life even what he eats for lunch sometimes his writing style is so dumbed down there is nothing remotely academic about this book This book is for eople who want a cheap thrill of a crime novel with no substance behind it It reads like a biography than an actual resource for information on this subject Even though the book is designed to be like a cheap novel "Or Memoir Than A Educating " memoir than a educating I still found it to be incredibly dry and boring I have absolutely no interest in the writers ex girlfriends where he went for christmas that year what his life in school was like maybe if it seemed like it added some context to how abilities or insight but it really doesn tI gave this book to a charity shop after I was done reading it as it has nothing to offer me except to mostly waste my time for the most slim ieces of information that its actually relatively easy to find anyway by watching any documentary or reading other book on the subject Sometimes a book is rated five star and I come to the conclusion its much like why songs.
