Apr 14, Gregory Gietzen rated it it was amazing Shelves: Definitely a worthwhile crimonal, especially as an alternative to a lot of the offerings out there. Turvey insists on the primacy of the scientific method in criminal investigation, and the importance of deduction over induction. Right there I knew we were going to be best of friends, and when he included the section excoriating anyone profkling to entertain criminxl as an investigative tool, I was sold.
The insistence on scientific rigor is something I’d like to see adopted across the board, since ju Definitely a worthwhile read, especially as an alternative to a lot of the offerings out there. The insistence on scientific rigor is something I’d like to see adopted across the board, since junk science is a threat to victims and defendants alike. During my high school and undergraduate years, I read a lot of the books put out by the original FBI profilers — Ressler, Hazlewood, Douglas, Dietz, etc.
At the time I really liked them, but they’ve since worn considerably thin with me. Turvey holds their work to account, pointing out for instance the frequent substitution of statistical data sometimes obtained in deeply flawed studies for genuine offender insight.
This willingness to challenge the received wisdom of the BAU and its heirs makes the book valuable, although it might be offputting to those who like their cows sacred.
Jun 30, Tawny Taylor rated it it was amazing. Excellent resource for authors of suspense and mystery fiction. The price is on the high side, but the book criminzl well worth hrent cost. Dec 28, John rated it liked it Shelves: It is clear from this text that Mr. Turvey is a proponent of individual case study, rather than statistical analysis. I can understand profiiling agree with that. In the text, however, he spends an inordinate amount of time stressing the limits of criminal profiling while not providing much in the ways of actually developing a profile.
Basic terms are discussed, but clear strategies and “how to”s are missing. Perhaps, as a primer for further study, this text is a starting point. I had hoped for more pr It is clear from this text that Mr. I had hoped for more procedural information. Not that his information was crimnial the contrary.
Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis by Brent E. Turvey
As a foundation, it stresses how to ensure fair, accurate, and usable profiles by avoiding pitfalls. But as a guide for actual psychological analysis, this is not the text. NC Own in hardback. A very good survey of criminal profiling theory and methods. Part of the quality of the book comes from the breadth and depth of the contributors that Turvey brings in, but another reason for the book’s quality stems from Turvey’s personal interest in the subject, the reason for which he details in the introduction.
This is a great book for anyone looking for a thorough overview of the subject, as well as an in-depth examination for professions.
Feb 04, Melissa rated it it was ok. The author’s opinion on pioneering individuals in the field of criminal profiling is made clear to the reader. I never like it when an author references himself or his opinions and theories in a text – just give me the facts, please – and I think that’s a big turfey of the reason why I don’t really care for this.

Can’t imagine I’ll finish it. Mar 07, Michelle rated it it was ok. Will update when I finish. Right now however I think the author is horrible and contradictory.
