The book is excellent, with clarity, content, and the information presented is easy reading.  The behavioral concepts and technology are clearly explained.  Each chapter builds on the knowledge base with clear descriptions of  individual, group, domestic, global considerations, example variables, and case analysis integrating the technical fields of computer science, internet, and behavior analysis.     Dr. Jackson points out in this book, the methods he presents are applicable to increase appropriate social behavior as well as  the prediction of malicious behavior.   Dr Jackson has taken the  technology to the next level as stated by Dr. Cole  and i am so thankful Dr. Jackson was cleared to release his work.   I have always contended that the  disabled of our society will benefit  with the release of new technology, and advances in medical and behavioral science.  I encourage professionals learn to apply Dr. Jacksons work  in the fields of psychology, neurology, psychiatry, medicine and law enforcement.   The analytic approaches described in this book provide a method for  precise individual analysis, group analysis, and modification of physical and social environments  to strengthen, maintain adaptive skills and positive behavior. Additionally the technology is more precise in identifying  factors  which  may not appear significant, but  actually encourage  or maintain difficult long term maladaptive, malicious behavior, and mental illness.   Dr Jackson's methods offer technology and direction to the professionals who are working to protect our nation, citizens, and additionally to clinical therapist.     In conclusion Dr. Jacksons  technology and analysis will demonstrate which clinical treatments are the factor having a significant positive effect on someones life, and in the national/ global setting,  predict and signal intervention to  protect our  citizens, nation from criminal actions within our borders, and globally.
