Although evil to some is just a word, its meaning is so wide and inclusive, it's hard to find a definitive meaning. Michael Stone-host of Discovery channels:'Most Evil' series- has taken the word evil, and broken it into 22 levels of depth and meaning. Thoroughly researched, he has read over 600 biographies of various criminals and crimes, to develop this system. Factors he includes in his definitions include heredity, adverse environments, esp, in childhood, mental illnes and head injury. And mind altering drug abuse. This book is an effort to define evil as a way of predicting and/or noticing early signs of violence in children, hoping to prevent them and save them from responding to these urges, and return to a more "normal" lifestyle. Easy to read and understand, this book should be read by anyone with an interest in psychology or forensics. Good read!!
This book was an amazing recount of the boom in the cocaine industry and distribution. This real-life account by Roberto Escobar, brother of Pablo Escobar, will have you second guessing your perception of drug traffickers. Roberto tells the tale of his Robinhood-like brother who truly was a man of the people who wanted nothing more than to work in politics. He tells the tale of exotic palaces with animals from all over the world and of the rise and fall of the Medellin Cartel. This book takes you through Columbia, the jungles, drug laboratories, even prison. This book was easy to read, easy to follow, and had such an amazing content. This story definitely makes you take a better look at what is behind the drug and the people who brought it to the world on a platter, sometimes 15 tons a day.
The strangely enthralling true story about the men who clean up the messes that serial killers leave behind…
As every CSI enthusiast knows, murderers often leave gory scenes. But who cleans them up after the forensic wizards are done with their work? To answer the question, journalist Alan Emmins went behind the yellow tape to scope out the work of Crime Scene Cleaners Inc., a nationwide business described in its flyers as “a cleaning maintenance service specializing in the cleanup of homicide, suicide & accidental death.” Mop Men offers a fact-filled, tongue-in-cheek profile of Crime Scene Cleaners mogul Neal Smither, a family man who leads a life more double than that of any serial killer.
