Synopsis: An in-depth investigation with groundbreaking conclusions about the physical, psychological, & social factors that culminate in violent behavior. Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Andrew Cunnanen -- the author probed the lives of these serial killers & other violent criminals (VC) to find out what triggers the violent instinct. Nearly all the murderers suffered severe abuse as children, which permanently damaged their developing brains. VC behavior is the product of a brain that may be born predisposed to violence coupled with an abusive environment. How we can identify potentially VC from a young age before the damage becomes irrevocable? How can we rehabilitate VC & at the same time safeguard against their committing future crimes?
