Great book, read it in the 90s. Is NOTHING like Criminal Minds. John Douglas traveled the country either alone or with his partner, Robert Ressler, not on a private jet with a team of 8 people. The two of them had 10, 20, 30 cases at all times. Interesting note, Douglas came down with viral encephalitis while in Seattle and almost died when here to consult on the then unknown Green River Killer. If you've seen the show, when Agent Ford uses certain vulgar words to relate to the killers, yep, that really happened. Enjoy.

David Fincher (House of Cards) and Charlize Theron's collaboration, Mind Hunter, is set to debut on Netflix in 2017. The book is centered around two FBI agents as they attempt to crack cases by interviewing serial killers.

For those of you who love the TV program "Criminal Minds", this book examines the roots of the FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit (BAU on the show). It will hook you from the very beginning. I didn't particularly like the author (John Douglas; a little to cocky and arrogant for me), but I appreciate what he and his team created. I thought a lot of the content on Criminal Minds was pure hogwash; turns out I was wrong. If you are even thinking about joining law enforcement, this is a must.
