The grandiosity was a bit much to stomach at times and I got the impression he just loves to hear himself talk, especially about his favorite subject: Himself.

The behaviour of the criminal reflects their personality and so to fully understand why they do what they do, a profiler must go into every tiny detail they can find including the autopsy reports or statements, the victimology and background of the criminal. I found this to be a surprisingly drawn out and narcissistic book. They couldn't be just like us.
John didn't harbor any illusions as to Kemper's character and psyche. The man has worked on the cases that are world renowned for being some of the most psychotic killings to date.

He wrote, produced and directed Discovering Hamlet , a behind-the-scenes look at the mounting of an innovative production of Hamlet, perhaps the greatest literary murder mystery of all time. He does not have one moral to the story. Very interesting stuff, and logical, too. His profiles are always perfect, or if not perfect the only details he misses are trivial, and he always rides in on his white horse to save the day. I mean, I guess the rest of the book is semi-chronological, but he will often discuss similar crimes together. His aggressive plan of action was ignored.
