Peer Rampage Killers” that todays forensic psychologist use

Peer into the brains of the psychologically damaged with Peter Vronsky as he takes you on a journey revealing some of the most puzzling psychopaths in our history. Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters will not only show you the cognition and behaviors presented by the psychopaths in our society but will reveal to you how you can spot them sitting next to you. In this book you’ll investigate the cultural aspects of Serial Murder, beginning in Ancient Rome during the fifteenth century to the notorious killers living in today’s society. Details regarding Ed Kemper, Ted Bundy and Henry Lee Lucas help begin to classify the behavioral term known as “Serial Rampage Killers” that todays forensic psychologist use to identify the murderers on our streets. Glimpses inside the brains of our past and present serial killers will reveal theories of the monsters regarding the recognition of verbal warnings and actions to confrontational resistance. However one must remember that these people are everywhere, “We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow” ( ). Dig deep into your own psyche and maybe you’ll find traces of your own inner evil. You don’t have to be a psychologist to understand the inner workings of the people around you. However, you do have to be willing to open up your senses and accept that everyone’s brain works differently. If you can do just that then this book is right for you. Textbooks regarding the topic of crime and psychology tend to be dragged out over the course of one hundred to five hundred pages. Although this book is four hundred and thirty two pages it keeps its readers on their toes. Peter Vronsky in no way glorifies serial killers but talks about the facts in which he presents to try and understand the madness behind the killers. “The death of JFK defined for us the halfway point between Pearl Harbor and 9/11– when bad things stopped happening “over there” and began to occur “over here.” The statistics may prove something else, but that is when it really started to feel bad: in November 1963. It was precisely around that time, on the second day after the assassination, that the Boston Strangler was ushering in the new times by raping and killing his twelfth victim, a twenty-three-year-old Sunday school teacher” (). This specific quote stuck out like a sore thumb as it begins to make the reader realize  how comfortable we become as humans in our daily routines with many of us believing or not ever noticing that evil is all around us. Simple tasks we take for granted like going out to school everyday, getting groceries, or spending the day out with friends could potentially be our last. Not only was this book truly informing but the author, Peter Vronsky, was trying to insert a hidden meaning into the text; always be aware of those around you. If anything this book looks deep into the disturbing reality that all humans are passing by without notice. Every human being is psychologically disturbed. H
