Recensioner

Twisted is a story that is twisted. It is extremely upsetting to hear this story. Unfortunately the narrator read the story in a jerky tone that did the book no good. Four stars were given to this book because of the story. The narrator would get one star.

Another anti-gun activist using his degree and credentials to give his opinion the patina of scientific objectivity.

I was actually interested in his information until he destroyed his credibility in the last 30 minutes (audiobook). He spent 2-1/2 hours discussing potential explanations and possible marker traits for psychopathic killers - both adult and juvenile. He dismissed using blanket trait application because they are not significantly reliable. Then, in the last 20-25 minutes of the audio, he launches into a diatribe against guns and how they need to be restricted. Given Kellerman’s own dismissal of simple traits as identifiers and how many young people grow up with firearms in the household but are not psychopathic murderers, why do guns earn his special attention as the apparent exception to his statements that blanket diagnoses are not legitimate.

Kellerman doesn’t believe all of society should be punished with censorship because a few abnormal individuals react to violence in movies and on television. But 100% of gun enthusiasts should be punished because those few abnormal individuals used a specific tool to act on those impulses. Hypocrite much, Kellerman?

What about restricting use of drugs like Ritalin or Adderall or pain relievers because we are turning out generations of drug addicts?

Kellerman cites shorter times between sentencing and execution in Saudi Arabia as a significant deterrent to violent crime in that country. Instead of lifetime incarceration of the truly psychopathic killer, perhaps carrying out death sentences more quickly would be a better solution.

Because, sometimes, evil is just evil. And it should not be tolerated.

After a school shooting, Detective Milo Sturgis calls in his friend and LAPD consulting psychologist, Dr. Alex Delaware, to provide counseling for the traumatized kids. The unlikely shooter, a young girl, is killed, but her death leaves more questions than answers for the police. Things morph quickly into political rivalry, racist pro-nazi groups, and strange cloak-and-dagger operatives. The first part of the book goes slow while Alex does his thing at the school and starts a new relationship with the principal, Dr. Linda Overstreet, but once the action begins, there are lots of it, along with a couple of plot twists that I didn’t see coming. There are so many issues in this book that I found it hard to keep up and still hang onto the storyline. To bring it all together, Mr. Kellerman does a lot of explaining at the end. It worked—barely.… (mer)
