This is a highly dubious work, written with a questionable bias. The author is known widely as a professional paid prosecution expert. He also has been severely criticized for the nature and content of his court work by the Virginia Supreme Court and a range of reliable professionals. He narrowly has escaped prosecution for slanting testimony based on fees offered by opposing clients. Google him.

With an almost hardline approach, Samenow skirts around the complexities of the topic of criminality and instead offers a very simplistic, dumbed down look. I wasn't expecting a dissertation or academic treatise but the book is strives for nothing more ambitious than a cursory literature review on case studies and examples that support select theories. Samenow rarely cites his own research and never cites opposing research, even to at least, attempt to debunk it. Examples and references are self-serving and cherry-picked. Which is sadly a perfectly legitimate, if lazy, way to write a book. Readers should read with caution.
