    When I heard about this book a few months ago, I immediately added it to my wish list thinking that it was going to be about serial killers and other psychopaths Instead, I was treated to a series of case studies about mentally ill people who had committed crimes Despite the fact that this book didn t initially meet my expectations, I couldn t put it down because it was just too interesting It was refreshing to see the human side of mentally criminals for lack of a better word.My only gripe When I heard about this book a few months ago, I immediately added it to my wish list thinking that it was going to be about serial killers and other psychopaths Instead, I was treated to a series of case studies about mentally ill people who had committed crimes Despite the fact that this book didn t initially meet my expectations, I couldn t put it down because it was just too interesting It was refreshing to see the human side of mentally criminals for lack of a better word.My only gripes are that some of the author s explanations were a little simplistic, or based seemingly on her own assumptions I would have liked to have seen a littledepth with some of the case studies Also, she tends to repeat herself a lot when talking about different cases with similar scenarios It s not a dealbreaker, though.If you have any interest in mental illness and its effect on the legal process, you should check this book out

    A very interesting look at mentally ill criminals through the eyes of a forensic psychiatrist Dr Paradis details many cases she was involved in and describes the methods she uses to determine whether these individuals are competent to stand trial, and whether they were insane or suffering from an extreme emotional disturbance at the time of the crime Contrary to popular belief, most of these cases are not murders one man Dr Paradis evaluated was only in for misdemeanor assault.The only fa A very interesting look at mentally ill criminals through the eyes of a forensic psychiatrist Dr Paradis details many cases she was involved in and describes the methods she uses to determine whether these individuals are competent to stand trial, and whether they were insane or suffering from an extreme emotional disturbance at the time of the crime Contrary to popular belief, most of these cases are not murders one man Dr Paradis evaluated was only in for misdemeanor assault.The only fault I find with this book is that it s quite repetitive the same psychological tests, for instance the house tree woman one, are described over and over again in each chapter I think people interested in psychology and criminology will find this book very useful and illuminating

    I felt as though this book was mediocre at best It was very repetitive and it seemed as though most of this information was skin deep When I bought this book from Barnes Noble I assumed it would be about serial killers and their motivations I partly blame myself for my disappointment because I should have looked into itThere seemed to be a lot of legal issues and the author mainly focused on a criminal s ability to stand trial I give it three stars because some of the stories did sp I felt as though this book was mediocre at best It was very repetitive and it seemed as though most of this information was skin deep When I bought this book from BarnesNoble I assumed it would be about serial killers and their motivations I partly blame myself for my disappointment because I should have looked into itThere seemed to be a lot of legal issues and the author mainly focused on a criminal s ability to stand trial I give it three stars because some of the stories did spark my interest, enough to even pass the book off to a friend and have her read a passage or two All in all, I have certainly read better books on psychology

    I was really impressed with this book It s written for the layperson, and I not only learned a lot about the role of a forensic psychologist in general, but alsoabout how the system works She did a really good job of explaining different symptoms by delving into various cases she s worked throughout her career I d recommend this to anyone trying to get a better understanding of the field.

    I felt that this book had very relevant information, but lacked the follow through that non forensic psychologists would desire I like the deeper look into the process of the not guilty by insanity plea, but wished there could have been some sort of Where are they now portion I also struggled a bit with the author s voice in the book While clearly knowledgeable and well written, I felt that there were several unnecessary back door toots of her own horn that would turn me off Overall I I felt that this book had very relevant information, but lacked the follow through that non forensic psychologists would desire I like the deeper look into the process of the not guilty by insanity plea, but wished there could have been some sort of Where are they now portion I also struggled a bit with the author s voice in the book While clearly knowledgeable and well written, I felt that there were several unnecessary back door toots of her own horn that would turn me off Overall I am happy that I read it

    This could have been very interesting, but unfortunately Cheryl Paradis can not only not write, she also writes as though her readers are as thick as she is I get the impression from reading this book that she has been trained very well as a forensic psychologist, but in herself is not all that bright This book has piqued my interest for reading further analytical case studies, but just not by her.

    As a Psychiatric Screener, I found this book interesting and enjoyable The writer gives a great presentation from a different perspective than mine, and she does it very well She reviews all the material made available and is thorough Not sure since I haven t read them why anyone would not rate this at least a 4.

    It s scary to me to think that each of us has the potential to madness And worse yet, to cause harm to another human being without a sign of remorse Do each of us have that in us
