Editorial Reviews

Criminal Lawyers Ass.
Dr. Cupchik...offers a fascinating study of the atypical client-- that is, someone who displays bizarre, nonsensical behavior in commiting theft or fraud. His well written text assist both the professional and lay person in learning how to....identify and understand atypical theft behavior...., determine which judical options are more or less likely to be effective with these cases.
Ontario Psychological Ass.
The readability of this book handles well what could be seen as a very academic issues. The use of case studies (approrpiately disguised) and practical hints should make this a useful addition to the reference libraries of clinicians, lawyers, and others.

What People are saying about this

David Kirk
"Congratulations! ...you've managed to do something that I would normally have considered extremely tricky, if not impossible; that is, you've bridged the gap between professional and lay readers.... I would think almost anybody could pick up your book and get a lot of very interesting information from it without having to master a bunch of alien concepts.... The 'real people anecdotes' are very powerful, and what might be a lot of abstract clinical data comes alive." (David Kirk, former CBC Television National News and documentary producer)
Mary Derouard
"Your book... is an easy read with important info that I hadn't seen in print anywhere else. I thought it was important... Your book was the first account I had encountered on this topic... also friendly, engaging and informative... (· Mary Derouard, editor, Source RE Source)
