I have ben reading Jonathan Kellerman as a fiction writer for several years, always enjoying his work. When I found he had published non-fiction as well I was eager to read it, especially as a medical professional. I found 'Savage Spawn' to be quite compelling, and not at all boring or long winded as many non-fiction works of the medical/psychological type seem to be. Kellerman's years of fiction work have obviously helped him to present facts in an entertaining yet enlightening style. Such a delicate issue of childhood/teenage violence and psychosis is a topic mastered in this book. I recommend it to those prepared to learn about the tragic realities of youthful mental illness, not for general audiences...

This is a book that will educate but that you can enjoy reading. A tremendous amount of information in a small book. Good for research.

Kellerman expertly describes his belief that most people who commit unimaginable crimes (eg. school shootings) do so not because they are crazy (ie. psychotic), but because they are psychopaths....people who are devoid of many personality traits that we would consider "normal". Kellerman describes what the term "psychopath" (sometimes referred to as " sociopath") means, the theories of causation, and what can possibly be done to intervene with youth who exhibit these psychopathic tendencies. As someone who works with some of the worst psychopaths on a daily basis, I can assure you that Kellerman could not be more accurate in describing these monsters that walk among us.

An important topic society turns a blind eye to. After 27+ years in education unfortunatly I have seen a few children that have made my blood run cold. Kellerman does a great job on an almost tabu subject.

I wanted stories of bad kids not a holier than thou essay on how we create them. P.s. spanking is not, in and of itself, inherently aggressive. When properly applied, not in anger but calmly and with explained reasons, spanking is a valid form of punishment.
