Review:

Praise for the third edition:
"In the third edition of this very popular textbook, Brent Turvey clearly demonstrates that criminal profiling has established itself as a scientific endeavor rather than an exercise in investigative intuition. This textbook pulls together an impressive amount of substantive knowledge from a variety of disciplines in order to provide the reader with a foundation upon which to develop a mastery of the criminal profiling process. As Turvey demonstrates throughout the text, however, there are various methodological approaches to the practice of criminal profiling. Paramount among these, he argues, is the method known as Behavioral Evidence Analysis, which is described and illustrated in great detail throughout this remarkable book."
--Daniel B. Kennedy, PhD, Forensic Criminologist, University of Detroit Mercy

"The third edition of Criminal Profiling is sterling!"
--Stan Crowder, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, Kennesaw State University, GA

Praise for the previous editions:
"This text documents the principles of proper criminal profiling and undertakes to establish definite criteria for professionalization...should be reviewed by anyone intent on becoming a professional criminal profiler."
?AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY

"...a thorough grounding in what is a relatively new field. This is more than a basic text and...should be required reading for all criminal investigators."
?CRIME AND JUSTICE INTERNATIONAL

"...an important contribution to the systematic study of the behavioural evidence linked to the perpetration of serious crimes...Brent Turvey's opus is a major and much needed step toward professionalism [of criminal profiling.]"
