One thought on “Killing for Sport: Inside the Minds of Serial Killers

  1. Sneakend

    I was born with the devil in me I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no than a poet can help the inspiration to sing H.H HolmesThe book is filled with quotes by serial killers and other people , which I found at times quite distracting In many places they even felt irrelevant I suppose they are there to help guide the reader into the mind of serial killers, and all in all I enjoyed them than the actual text by the author Had the book been called Quotes by serial killers I might hav [...]

  2. Mark O'Brien

    This is the kind of book that can only do harm than good I suppose there is no law dictating that a serious topic is deserving of a serious tone But in adopting a tone of flippancy, Brown is in danger of demeaning the very people she claims to be writing for the families of victims.Brown claims that it is her purpose to answer questions about serial killers with no fluff, no psychobabble, and no ego trips Well, there is no psychobabble.Alarm bells began to ring at the title Killing for Sport.Ok [...]

  3. Dina (ReviewTime)

    Shocking, compelling and at times deeply disturbing Killing for Sport is an eye opening view into the minds of serial killers Unlike other books on the subject Author Profiler Pat Brown simplifies the difficult to understand jargon and explains each aspect in common language Her book gives the reader a interesting look into the life of a profiler and the world of the serial killer Throughout her book Ms Brown makes use of actual quotes from well known serial killers, which adds to the jaw droppi [...]

    For some reason I was under the impression that I would learn something from this book.Can women be serial killers Yes.Are all killers men Nope.What is a serial killer Well, according to my research on Google, A serial killer is a person who has murdered three or people over a period of than a month, with down time a cooling off period between each of the murders According to this book, someone who s killed one or people Why Because if that person hadn t been caught, they would ve done it aga [...]

  5. SenoraG

    Killing for Sport was a very enjoyable book Written by a profiler who knows quite a bit about serial killers and how they operate Reading the book was like having a QA with the author and killers both Ms Brown asked questions that we all wonder about regarding how these murderers do what they do, then goes on to answer them.The author tried to add light humor along with the information which at times I felt was in bad taste, but then again, murder is in bad taste I understand that in this kind o [...]

  6. Sonnic

    Brown demystifies the world of serial killers and profiling in a no jargon, no mumbo jumbo book Contains good tips for not becoming a crime victim A much easier read and informative in many ways than most books on profiling.

  7. Melanie Franklin

    Not as detailed as I expected If you already have a basic understanding of serial killers, this book is pretty much common knowledge.

  8. Stephan

    Great read A basic introductory reference guide which suits the interests of all persons interested in the study of serial killers.

  9. Dave

    Review originally posted at Book of BoganA convenient set of Frequently Apparently Asked Questions about the lives, loves and crimes of serial killers, as written by someone with a particular agenda to push Littered with quotes from serial killers themselves, as well as real world examples, Killing for Sport is a somewhat blandly written look at the world of murderers.I guess as one of the most horrifying types of criminal in society the serial killer these murderers are at least a curiosity, if [...]

  10. Y

    2.25 stars Interesting, with some sarcastic humor thrown in ranging from wry to snide , and picks apart common common sense aspects of criminal profiling that may not be as valuable in the trade as they tend to be portrayed in both fiction and reality However, while the author is apparently a criminal profiler herself and undoubtedly has a lot of experience and knowledge on her subject, most of what she portrays as fact in the book is not backed up by any examples, whether nationally famous, or [...]

  11. Mark

    Killing for Sport is an excellent overview of the subject of the losers who kill Profiling is vastly overrated by Hollywood and the media in general It can be a useful tool, but most profilers are not much better than a psychic The good ones are those who spend time with a case, learn all there is to know and then don t over state their conclusions Brown did categorically state that there is no murder case that has been solved by a psychic The good psychics are those who have done their due dili [...]

  12. Shawn Scarano

    Like I said in my prior review before I finished this book, this is definatly geared twords the layman with easy to understand references and no large have to lookup medical vocabulary as well However it still is a good read It looks at the serial killers mind, how it works, what drives him or her, what he she looks for in a victim and how to avoid becoming one Giving tips to the reader as well as ideas and street smart reasonings If you are into the psychology behind the crime and are turned o [...]

    This book answers tons of questions about myths and facts regarding serial killers To be honest, it wasn t anything I didn t already know But it is interesting the things that are thought to be fact based on the television rendition of the serial killer profiling programs That being said, I enjoyed the author s wit and humor, but got pretty bored of the review by the end of the book It s a good thing it was a short one or I never would have finished it.

  14. Brisbride13

    The title lead me to believe this book was going to be a detailed look into the minds of serial killers not some silly QA format with some grey boxes on the side with quotes from the killers it grabbed my attention very early on, the voice behind the book, but once I flipped forward and discovered the entire book was written the same way, I lost interest However, I did stick with it Would not recommend it.

  15. Scott Wright

    Non fiction book that gives a bit of a look at serial killers A bit arrogant in the presentation I m correct and all others are wrong Perhaps in her time she may be correct in her field, but not the end all in all She is a profiler yet, hasn t profiled any of the big ones that she sites in the book it seems I enjoyed the learning of it however and it tied in well with my criminal justice investigations class.

  16. Bea

    I think the author offered different point of view to public knowledge Very good book, well written, easy to understand and without necessary discussion around Very straight, based on experiences I enjoyed every minute of the reading, even by enjoying I mean ability to feel what s behind the words It s easy to say torture but to understand what led author to use the word is the point Even many people can read this without any feeling, I m glad I m not one of them And that s enjoying.

  17. Andrei Taylor

    This is honestly the least scientific book I have ever read Pat Brown has a killer living below her then magically becomes a expert on killers Her writing is sensational, her examples are weak and her overall outlook is grim I became infatuated with the inner workings of Serial Killers and I had high hopes for this book, I was terribly disappointed.

  18. Stephen

    Its ok, its interesting enough but it left a lot out If you go on and search for a specific serial killer it will tell you information It doesn t touch on any of the serial killers for long enough so you can get a clear picture of what they did in detail Yea, just ok.

  19. George

    Fascinating Written in a Q A style that leads the reader through the world of the Serial Killer in all their forms Wonderful quotes from Manson, Dahmer, Bundy, Gacy, and others are liberally used throughout the book A wonderful follow up volume to the author s The Profiler.

  20. Tyler

    I ve never really read a book that starts out disappointed in its own existence The opening sentiment starts like this I ve waited long enough for someone with my exact qualifications to write this exact book, and nobody has, so here it is.

  21. Eric

    It s the author s style and tone I disliked than the content Although the content was a little ho hum for people well versed in true crime.

  22. Angel

    I m not a fan of this one She had some good points, but seemed bent on knocking the FBI and their methods through the whole thing it got a little old.

  23. Edelhart Kempeneers

    Wat tegengevallen The Sociopath Next Door van Martha Stout en The Psychopath Test van Jon Ronson zijn stukken beter.

  24. Trish Mayfield

    This book is poorly written and treats the reader as an imbecile Too much dumbing down makes for a poor read.

  25. Jamie

    Not what I was expecting at all More of a text book read on common knowledge Made it 75% through and threw in the towel.
