This book compelled me to study psychology. Its engrossing trek into the history of crime is fantastically narrated, and detailed in a way that draws you further and further into the stories and reasoning behind each subject. As well as revealing personal moments about his own life in regards to his work, Raine brings us a glimpse into the future as these subjects become more ingrained in everyday life--a must read for anyone interested in the link between psychology and criminology. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
