I read this for a book report, dont get me wrong i love to read, but this book is full of bias generalized opinions. all that the author does is point the obvious and blames the acctions of all the violence on 3 key elements: video games, media, and tenage rebelion. not at one point dose he consider the posibility that the way that a parent raises a child is the only true reason that kids misbehave and comit crimes such as these. Larson clearly states that the only way to properly raise a child is his way. for the tiem being i hope that any parent who reads this in hope that they may be able to 'fix' there child is to realize that they as a parent have FAILED and that they need to admit to there failure and fix it.

I gave this book one star, but if I could I would have given it none. This book was one of the worst I've ever read. The author's reasons were absurd. If anyone is thinking of buying this book, I suggest they save their money.

Bob Larson uses most of the book to examine many of the recent school shootings, and the apparent lack of Christianity in their life. He suggests that parents encourage 'mothers to stay home' and to 'suggest a family clean-up day' instead of dropping the kids off at a Marilyn Manson concert. He tries poorly to convince that the Devil (not metaphorically, but personally) is responsible for entering a school where Christianity is not the dominant religion. Too many un-disputed personal views and a very naive idealistic view of a world that won't exist ruins a decent examination.

The author admitted that this book was rushed to print, evidently to cash in on the tragic death of Cassie Bernall. Frankly, it shows. The book unabashedly asserts that both Cassie and Rachel Scott were killed for professing their belief in God, positions more responsible journalists have abandoned. What's more, the author attributes virtually everything bad to demons (including his wife hiting a deer with her car!) -- which you can get by trading Pokemon cards (which he doesn't do), but not by taking your secretary and her three girls to the Disney Yacht Club Hotel while the wife stayed home (which he did).

The author is a college dropout who claims to be an 'expert' on everything from rock music to UFOs and even family issues, and brings no identifiable expertise to the table (unless you accept the time he spent in psychotherapy as bestowing expertise upon him). As such, his conclusions are shallow and facile, and depend far too heavily on 'facts' which are now generally discredited. Dr. Linda Mintle (who wrote an earlier book, 'Kids Killing Kids,' also cashing in on the Columbine tragedy) has some measure of professional expertise upon which to draw, and her insights (while also based on dubious facts) are more credible.

'Extreme Evil' is a certifiable stinker, and our local B/N had the good taste not to carry it in stock.

Larson may be a pastor, but he is not a social worker, sociologist, psychologist, psychiatrist orcriminalogist, so his opinion on this subject is worthless. He is just peddling religious snake oil. Save your money.
