In Obsession, John Douglas once again takes us fascinatingly behind the scenes, focusing his expertise on predatory crimes, primarily against women. With a deep sense of compassion for the victims and an uncanny understanding of the perpetrators, Douglas looks at the obsessions that lead to rape, stalking, and sexual murder through such cases as Ronnie Shelton, the serial rapist who terrorized Cleveland; and New York's notorious "Preppie Murder."
But Douglas also looks at obsession on the other side of the moral spectrum: his own career-long obsession with hunting these predators. Douglas shows us how we can all fight back and protect ourselves, our families, and loved ones against the scourge of the violent predators in our midst.
The first step is insight and understanding, and no one is better qualified to penetrate Obsession than John Douglas.

The content of this book is great, which is why it is so disappointing that it was apparently proofread and spellchecked by a moron! Rampant typos through out the entire book! In one chapter an individuals name switches back and forth between parley and Farley multiple times on each page! Running a spell check program is not proofreading, and in fact isn't even really spell checking as many typos are spelled right but are incorrect words! You should refund the cost of this book if you can't be bothered to properly edit the final output!
