A brilliant, no-nonsense profile of the criminal mind, newly updated to include the latest research, effective methods for dealing with hardened criminals, and an urgent call to rethink criminal justice from expert witness Stanton E. Samenow, Ph.D. “Utterly compelling reading, full of raw insight into the dark mind of the criminal.”—John Douglas, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Mind Hunter Long-held myths defining the sources of and remedies for crime are shattered in this groundbreaking book—and a chilling profile of today’s criminal emerges. In 1984, Stanton Samenow changed the way we think about the workings of the criminal mind, with a revolutionary approach to “habilitation.” In 2014, armed with forty years of additional knowledge and insight, Samenow explored the subject anew, explaining criminals’ thought patterns in the new millennium, such as those that lead to domestic violence, Internet victimization, and terrorism. The arenas of criminal behavior have expanded, demanding another updated version, which includes an exploration of social media as a vehicle for criminal conduct, new pharmaceutical influences and the impact of the opioid crisis, recent genetic and biological research into whether some people are “wired” to become criminals, new findings on the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy, and a fresh take on criminal justice reform. Throughout, we learn from Samenow’s five decades of experience how truly vital it is to know who the criminals are and how they think differently. If equipped with that crucial understanding, we can reach reasonable, compassionate, and effective solutions.

Is it nature or nurture that shapes a serial killer? What drives a person to become a kidnapper or a terrorist? And can such behaviors be predicted--or even stopped before they occur?

As advances in science unlock the secrets of our DNA and reveal the inner workings of the human brain, Time-Life Books explores the fascinating findings that are shedding new light on the criminal mind. What role does birth order, divorce, media influence, and other societal pressures play in how criminals are formed?

Readers will explore the roots of crime, going on the streets to meet the authorities who deal with criminals on a daily basis and have developed unique insights into the criminal mentality.

Packed with infographics, sidebars and lists, this book is a compelling yet easy introduction to the new age of crime and punishment--a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how crimes begin and how we can help end them.

Do you want to get inside the criminal mind? You may think you can spot a madman. You avoid the obviously disturbed when you meet them in the street. But if you want to avoid the path of a serial killer, your best bet is to sidestep the charming, the considerate, the impeccably dressed, polite individuals. Most serial killers and serial rapists have IQs well above average. Criminal psychologists urge, Don't underestimate the enemy. Don't underestimate the person you're trying to get. From tracking down serial killers, rapists, kidnappers and bombers, Crime Psych reveals how behavioural psychology and crime scene analysis, aided sometimes by a small helping of luck, have helped to cut short some of the deadliest careers of all time. Follow the FBI procedures from start to finish, beginning with the collection and assessment of case materials, including crime scene photographs, witness statements, victim information and autopsy reports. Discover how forensic examinations relating to the case and other relevant information is put together to help explain and reconstruct the details of the crime and how or why it was committed.

Kirkus Review: "An indelible cast enhances this sharp, measured mystery." *** Benigno's grittiest thriller to date! ***"FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE #1 BESTSELLER THE GOOD LAWYER--A NEW NOVEL IN THE GOOD LAWYER SERIES***A malicious undercurrent plagues the remote hamlet of Cartersville, New York, where children have been going missing for over half a century with no explanation or concern. When a disabled Vietnam veteran, reared in that town, collides in the heart of Manhattan with a teenage girl suffering from multiple personality disorder and memories of being trapped in a locked wooden box as a child, their budding connection slowly unravels memories that neither of them can leave in the past. After two buried crates are unearthed at a remote construction site, each with the bones of small boy inside them, and simultaneously, another local child goes missing, Nick Mannino, The Good Lawyer, and Paul Tarantino, a high-class fixer and former secret service agent, are drawn into the fray. Together they explore the disappearance over many years of not just one, but hundreds of children in and around this quaint but peculiar town. With the help of a genius hacker, a dedicated reporter, and the only witnesses to the crimes-the alternate personalities of the traumatized yet innocent teenager-The Good Lawyer is about to embark on his most disturbing investigation yet: uncovering a sinister underground enterprise, and the criminal mind behind it. ***Praise for The Good Lawyer: "SMASHING LEGAL THRILLER DEBUT" "Benigno's first effort is a crafty legal page-turner, just as good in the courtroom as it is outside..." -Kirkus Reviews"This one scared the briefs off me. Make room Grisham, legal suspense has a new senior partner."-Mike Shain, The New York PostPraise for The Criminal Lawyer: "In the end (we) eventually confront the killer in a scene that's relentless in its ferocity...Wisely, Benigno doesn't save every twist until the end; indeed, one or two happen early on, and even when the case seems all but resolved, there are still a couple of doozies to this surprising thriller." -Kirkus Reviews

The first half of Pride, the Criminal Mind, and Crime Prevention provides the reader with summaries of common crimes processed in the criminal courts of California. The crimes range from graffiti tagging to first degree murder. The second part of this work turns to youngsters, as well as to students of criminology and the criminal justice system, to offer a format for behaving ethically and avoiding criminality. As a didactic tool, it opens the doors to instructors for teaching through role playing sessions of personal life experiences which expose false pride and other human frailties. The present study may be best suited as a textbook companion and reader for college majors of sociology, psychology, and the criminal justice system. It offers an analysis after each summary of the criminal cases presented which addresses the perpetrators mentality, motivation, and rationalization for committing crimes. As the title suggests, pride is considered crucial in the criminal mind and can often be found as a catalyst, justification, and even a right to criminal behavior.
