Summary and Info
What sort of person kills, then cannibalizes his victim? Or stalks and terrorizes his prey? And what separates him from the rest of us? In Bad Men Do What Good Men Dream: a Forensic Psychiatrist Illuminates the Darker Side of Human Behavior, Robert I. Simon, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Program in Psychiatry and Law at Georgetown University School of Medicine, trains the Klieg light of his intellect and experience to illuminate our shadowy world and that of violent criminals a difference more of degree than of kind.Mental health professionals will find this updated version essential reading, but its engrossing narrative, graphic case studies and powerfully compelling conclusions will fascinate lay readers and amateur sleuths, as well. Thickly populated with psychopaths, serial killers, rapists, and all manner of evildoers, Bad Men Do What Good Men Dream: a Forensic Psychiatrist Illuminates the Darker Side of Human Behavior is at once a fascinating exploration of deviancy, a look at the protective factors that grant most of us normality, and a meditation on what it means to be fully human.
