!!> Reading ➻ Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit ➳ Author Mark Olshaker – Tactical-player.co.uk

Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit I find forensic psychology absolutely fascinating and this book just fuelled my interest The book is well written and maps the history of the FBI unit as well as John Douglas career It is informative and very interesting.I like that the book has cases I had not heard of before we have all read famous cases over and over and it gets dull However, I would have liked to have read about cases than are presented in the book A lot of the content is around John Douglas life, but I am much interested in the cases. Enjoying the book after watching the series It started a little off with, for me, too many details of the author s life when he met his wife, difficulties in the marriage, kids, borefest but eventually we got round to the nitty gritty of it all and it is fascinating to get a glimpse on how to work out a suspect identity from a few clues Quite tough in parts but the subject is not lighthearted so you should be warned Nicely written and edited too A good, if at times troubling, read What should have been a really interesting read is marred by the fact that Douglas is so self congratulating its detracts from the cases He only goes very loosely into how the profiles are formed most of the time he seems to just magically come up with the goods and he s always right Too much about the journey of the man and not enough about the science for my liking I purchased this book recently having read the rave reviews received for the series of the same name on Netflix I am an avid thriller reader and fascinated by most things related to crime so found this account by John Edward Douglas who is a former United States Federal Bureau of Investigation FBI agent and one of the first criminal profilers a very informative read He recounts some of the cases he has dealt with, many of which are house old names such as Charles Manson and Ted Bundy and gives fascinating insights into the mind of a serial killer.I found the book actually got better the I read and I am now looking forward to watching the TV Series. I read Whoever fights monsters by Robert Ressler years and years ago and found it gripping I ve recently watched Mindhunter and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I bought this book.I have to say I m struggling with it John Douglas comes across as a bit of a merchant banker see cockney rhyming slang I m on page 84 and I m waiting for it to get beyond the constant I m so cool and hilarious stories.Credit where it s due the work this guy did is obviously brilliant, but it reads like an application to join a frat house Not sure I m going to get much further.Thoroughly recommend the Robert Ressler book if you re interested in this kind of stuff. As a fan of true crime I ve read many books and some even about the cases described in the book A real insight into how and what is done in investigative science and written brilliantly well While sometimes not for the faint hearted I recommend anyone with an interest is this area gives it a read John Douglas Knows About Serial Killers Than Anybody Else In The World Mindhunter Is A Real Life, Fascinating Insight Into The Life Of A FBI Special Agent, And The Minds Of The Psychologically Disturbed Serial Killers He Hunts
