Summary
In 1984, this groundbreaking book offered readers an illuminating window into the workings of the criminal mind and a revolutionary approach to "habilitation". In 2004, armed with twenty years of additional knowledge and insight, Samenow explored the subject anew, using his expertise to explain the thought patterns of those who commit the crimes we were most concerned with in the new millennium, such as domestic violence, Internet victimization, and terrorism. The fields of criminal behavior have expanded, demanding another updated version, which includes an exploration of computers as a vehicle for criminal conduct; new drugs and pharmaceutical influences, exposure to the rawest forms of violence in video games, films, and television broadcasts; social media as an arena for illicit activities; and updated genetic and biological research into whether some people are "wired" to become criminals. Throughout, we learn from Samenow's four decades of experience how truly vital it is to know who the criminal is and how he or she thinks differently. Only once equipped with that crucial understanding can we reach reasonable, compassionate, and effective solutions
