Now a Netflix original series Discover the classic, behind-the-scenes chronicle of John E. Douglas' twenty-five-year career in the FBI Investigative Support Unit, where he used psychological profiling to delve into the minds of the country's most notorious serial killers and criminals. In chilling detail, the legendary Mindhunter takes us behind the scenes of some of his most gruesome, fascinating, and challenging cases--and into the darkest recesses of our worst nightmares. During his twenty-five year career with the Investigative Support Unit, Special Agent John Douglas became a legendary figure in law enforcement, pursuing some of the most notorious and sadistic serial killers of our time: the man who hunted prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and Seattle's Green River killer, the case that nearly cost Douglas his life. As the model for Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, Douglas has confronted, interviewed, and studied scores of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, and Ed Gein, who dressed himself in his victims' peeled skin. Using his uncanny ability to become both predator and prey, Douglas examines each crime scene, reliving both the killer's and the victim's actions in his mind, creating their profiles, describing their habits, and predicting their next moves.… (mer)

    Whoever Fights Monsters av Robert K. Ressler (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both are about early FBI profilers attempting to understand the minds of serial killers. Mindhunter is the more dramatically written while Whoever Fights Monsters included more specifics on profiling itself.

Those cases are either cherry-picked for the accuracy of profiles or this is witchcraft. The cases are fascinating and disturbing but the author sometimes comes across as a bit deranged himself - occupational disease? I guess working with cases like this all your life would affect everyone. ( )

This book is the basis for season 1 of the HBO Mindhunter series, so much so that I wonder what they'll do next. Maybe HBO could use Ressler's book for the next season.

I've read this and Ressler's Whoever Fights Monsters. Obviously the FBI has competent and motivated people, but it's clear that much of the vaunted Behavioral Science mystique is educated guesswork and cold reading. ( )

People are crazy and thanks to these guys they figured out way to find the crazies. Hard to believe this book is 20 years old. Not sure if I want to read about the current crime stories, but I am sure it would be just as fascinating. ( )

There's no denying that John Douglas, those who came before him, and those who came after him have helped shape the ideas of profiling and criminal investigation in popular culture. Given the many ways media take shortcuts with investigative procedure, it's quite interesting to get more accurate information straight from the source.

It's also fitting that Douglas comes across as a person who's difficult to like. There's an arrogant undertone to his writing and a bit of narcissistic flair to the way he developed, shaped, and writes about his programs. And that makes sense: it takes a hell of a lot of self-confidence to completely overhaul a division of the FBI. What colors my professional opinion of Douglas, though, is his disdain for science, research, and criticism.

Malcolm Gladwell wrote an interesting article for the New Yorker discussing research that's been done into Douglas's strain of profiling and that has questioned its efficacy. The researchers and Gladwell are right: Douglas's approach is not based any sort of psychological science that would hold water and moreover, Douglas is very dismissive about that fact and the academics who are critical of him. Douglas had some academic psychological training and holds a Ph.D. Training in his era wasn't heavily research-based, but standards in the field have changed significantly over time and he should have kept up with them, especially as he was developing techniques he's taught to thousands of people.

There's an NPR follow-up to Gladwell's New Yorker article, wherein Douglas artfully avoids answering most of the questions posed to him. Over time, we've also come to learn that many of the foundational forensic science practices (fingerprints, dental impressions, fire science) aren't nearly as accurate as we thought they were and certainly aren't as accurate as they need to be.

If you're picking up this book, I think it's definitely worth falling down the rabbit hole and looking at the criticisms of current forensic science. It's fascinating and, should you ever be called for jury duty, I'm sure all parties involved will welcome have an educated and informed juror. ( )

A bit slow at times, but very interesting. ( )
