Inside the Criminal Mind (Revised and Updated Edition)


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.
