    One thought on “I Have Lived in the Monster: Inside the Minds of the World's Most Notorious Serial Killers”

    1. An excellent read for anyone who wants to understand the psychology of the serial killer, includes interviews.

    2. Following his first book, Whoever Fights Monsters, Ressler's second book looks at more killers, in particular, serial killers.Serial killer. These two words intrigue many people.Once called stranger murders because of the lack of connection between victim and killer, this type of crime has become the popular topic of books, movies, and conversation. People fear the randomness and unpredictability of the serial killer. A victim is just in the wrong place at the wrong time.But there is a victimolo [...]

    3. While there was some interesting information, I wasn't really sure where it was trying to go and it felt more like an excuse for the author to stroke his ego and lash out at critics or others who misunderstood or misrepresented him, which is okay, but I didn't find it fun to read. A lot I was familiar with already. Obviously the guy is well known and an expert in his field, and this may have been just a quicky shot at making some money, but it isn't the best book on the subject I have tried.

    4. I had an obsession with this subject for a while so I read everything I could. This is a must read for anyone interessted in serial killers. Beyond the movie stereotype to real people. It's hard to believe they exist in the same world as us as they are so out there they seem fictional, but they are very real and very complex.

    5. Sexual Homicide is an incredible book, useful to everyone who has an interest in the psychology of crime. I Have Lived in the Monster is Ressler picking fights with imaginary enemies and preening for the camera. I didn't think anyone could actually have a bigger ego than Douglas, yet there he stands.

    6. The last book from the late, great Mr Ressler. I had to take a breather during one of the chapters, so I can't imagine how he was able to interview such monsters hours at a time. Mr Ressler is a true hero of mine for all the hard work given in the pioneering field of criminal profiling and helping to co-create VICAP.

    7. I have read all of resslers works, If you would like a real look into the FBI's serial unit. this is the work to read. It is not fo rthe faint of heart and it answered many of my questions. why it only has a 3.7 rating here is a mystery. It is an amazing book to read.

    8. Most books are rated related to their usefulness and contributions to my research.Overall, a good book for the researcher and enthusiast.Read for personal research- found this book's contents helpful and inspiring - number rating relates to the book's contribution to my needs.

    9. This book is great if you are interested in serial killers and the interviews in this book are great. Also the stories are very detailed and interesting.

    10. Former FBI criminal profiler Robert Ressler follows up his book "Whoever Fights Mosters" by reflecting on his post-FBI experiences. Especially noteworthy is his extensive interviews with serial killers John Wayne Gacey and Jeffrey Dahmer.Ressler's interview with Dahmer is probably one of the most significant parts of the book for what it reveals about the psychology behind Dahmer's acts. Ressler does a good job of sorting through the bull and getting at what motivated Dahmer and his specific men [...]

    11. I found this fascinating, but somehow just not as readable as Whoever Fights Monsters or The Evil That Men Do. Still a great read and would highly recommend to students of human darkness.

    12. A fine and rare insight into criminal monsters, from the experiences of one of the FBI's most brilliant minds. Read for research, was delighted with the story.

    13. This was an interesting read, albeit not as interesting as Ressler's first book, Whoever Fights Monsters.The focus this time is more on international crimes than domestic ones, and the cases covered are from Ressler's post-FBI consulting rather than his in bureau investigations. While this does allow coverage of some lesser known/media-exploited crimes; overall, I found these cases less satisfying both in a cultural and a psychological context than his bureau investigations have been perhaps be [...]

    14. Written by an ex FBI agent who is the world's most famous explorer of the serial murderer's mind. Pretty interesting. I especially liked the chapter about the Japanese foreign exchange student on his way to a Halloween party, who stopped at the wrong house and was shot to death. I mean, I didn't LIKE it - it is an excellent example of anecdotal evidence for gun control. There are also some interesting cases where the author (who was a detective supervisor in the army's criminal investigation div [...]

    15. I LOVED the interviews within the book, that really take a good look into the minds of serial killers. It's also interesting to read about the links between so many different kinds of serial killers. I felt that the author did put in a lot of personal opinion, however, and I do not like that. I feel that politics should stay out of a book that is supposed to be based on facts. The facts of guns and media causing violence is solely an opinion of the author. None of the killers had blamed their ac [...]

    16. Wow talk about disappointing. The first book Whoever Fights Monsters is a truly fascinating insight into the FBI and their development of the unit who caught serial killers.It was thrilling and completely blew me away. Robert Ressler was a man I looked up to as a pillar of wisdom and justice.This book? It is a blatant rip off. It is a complete rehash of various parts ogf the first book and other stories they probably left on the editing floor.I was so disgusted I left it on the train.

    17. I have read almost of all of John Douglas' books, so I figured I would like this one too, since Robert Ressler was in the same unit, at the same time, with Douglas. Ressler's tales are interesting, but his constant whining and ego-stroking, make this read incredibily frustrating. I found myself wishing that he would stop talking about himself and explaint he processes in which he develops a profile and catches the criminal. I don't think I'll be reading any more books by him.

    18. While the majority of the stories are interesting, I almost gave up on the book several times due to the tone of the author. He seems to take great pride in sharing his numerous achievements and stressing how helpful he was in each case. He also seems to take great pride in putting down others: former colleagues, police he has worked with, etc. His narration was very off putting, and I would rather hear someone else tell the stories.

    19. An account of Ressler's Career in the FBI's behavioral science unit, and his work pursuing the nation's worst serial killers. Ressler was a cohort of John Douglas. Reading this book, and some of Douglas' work, I am struck by how egotistical these guys are. I guess they have to be, to deal with the kinds of crimes they deal with.

    20. Mass murder in Japan, by sarin gas, intimate conversations with notorious serial killers, the mechanics of profiling - there's plenty of insider revelations here. I came away with new insight – the knowledge that serial/mass killers are impossible to pigeon-hole or stereotype and that we are still struggling to understand what motivates them and how to stop them.

    21. Mr Ressler is apparently quite good at what he does and doesn't mind telling you that at every opportunity. The book was a disappointment; the author didn't have much in the way of new material and resorted to including excerpts of interviews with serial killers as filler.

    22. Nothing less vivid, educating and thrilling compared to standard criminology textbook. But nothing more than that. Afterall, I do not particularly feel like spending additional bucks on the first book of Robert Ressler, Whoever Fights Monsters, at least for now.

    23. I think that this book hasn't held up too well under the strain of years of research and theories into criminality. It seems tired and dated, and also a little self indulgent on the authors part. Best bit was not the theorizing, but the interviews with serial killers Gacy and Dhamer.

    24. Another fascinating look into the minds of madmen just don't look too deep or they will give you nightmares.

    25. I quit reading this one after about 100 pages. Although I love books about serial killers, this one included a lot of information I already read/heard about.

    26. Boring It seems like he thinks a lot of himselfI like reading about killers but i couldn't read this book a easily as others, its too boring.
