Brown makes use of actual quotes from well known serial killers, which adds to the jaw Shocking, compelling and at times deeply disturbing "Killing for Sport" is an eye opening view into the minds of serial killers. Brown makes use of actual quotes from well known serial killers, which adds to the jaw dropping reality of how incurably sick and dangerous such individuals are. Brown offers pro-bono criminal profiling and training for law enforcement. She also provides profiling consultation to attorneys, families, and producers through The Pat Brown Criminal Profiling Agency. She is the founder and director of The Society for Investigative Criminal Profiling, an organization working to promote criminal profiling as a major tool in police investigations.
Brown has provided crime commentary, profiling and forensic analysis in over one thousand television and radio appearances in the United States and globally. She contributed to special feature content included in the home DVD edition of Profiler: Brown's "no non-since" approach to explaining the mind of the serial killer is both refreshing and astounding.

Brown boldly reaches out to the reader in plain English. Brown is very point blank in her presentation, while adding a refreshing touch of humor. This book is a great read for all who wonder how serial killers think. I recommend this book, but due to the nature of this topic reader discretion is advised. For other detailed reviews check out my review blog at http: Mar 28, Shan rated it it was ok Shelves: For some reason I was under the impression that I would learn something from this book. Can women be serial killers? Are all killers men? What is a serial killer? Well, according to my research on Google, "A serial killer is a person who has murdered three or more people over a period of more than a month, with down time a "cooling off period" between each of the murders.
Because if that person hadn't been caught, t For some reason I was under the impression that I would learn something from this book. Because if that person hadn't been caught, they would've done it again. Why do murderers usually kill someone of their own race? They usually kill what they know. So, some white dude lives in a mostly white area. Who does he kill? Probably a white, because that's what he's surrounded by.
Do killers generally kill in areas they know? Are most people killed by someone they know? It's all the basics. I haven't learned anything from this self-proclaimed most valuable insight into the minds of serial killers you'll ever read that I couldn't have learned by watching one or two episodes of Dateline or 48 Hours. Killing for Sport was a very enjoyable book. Written by a profiler who knows quite a bit about serial killers and how they operate.
Brown asked questions that we all wonder about regarding how these murderers do what they do, then goes on to answer them. The author tried to add light humor along with the information which at times I felt was in bad taste, but then again, murder is in bad taste. I understand that in t Killing for Sport was a very enjoyable book. I understand that in this kind of job you have to find humor where ever you can to keep your sanity. I listened to the audio version.
Jul 02, Sonnic rated it really liked it. Brown demystifies the world of serial killers and profiling in a no-jargon, no mumbo-jumbo book. Contains good tips for not becoming a crime victim. A much easier read and more informative in many ways than most books on profiling. Aug 06, Melanie Franklin rated it it was ok. Not as detailed as I expected. If you already have a basic understanding of serial killers, this book is pretty much common knowledge. Feb 02, Twi rated it it was amazing. Very well written slightly creepy to know so much about serial killers but informative.
Killing for Sport: Inside the Minds of Serial Killers
Interesting and disturbing at the same time. Jun 09, Tom Edwards rated it liked it Shelves: Anyone who knows me understands I have a morbid interest in criminal psychology, so when it comes to giving a good insight into the criminals mindset, this book does deliver what it says in the title. I understand the author was trying to kill some misconceptions about serial killers, but with questions like "Are all serial killers white?
Despite the obvious cliches, it did have some good insights into the killers mindset in certain parts of the book. Overall it was an engaging book, and I would especially recommend it to someone if they've just finished a difficult read and now want something more simple to get through. Jun 04, Stephan rated it really liked it. A basic introductory reference guide which suits the interests of all persons interested in the study of serial killers.
Jul 21, Dave rated it liked it Shelves: Review originally posted at Book of Bogan A convenient set of Frequently Apparently Asked Questions about the lives, loves and crimes of serial killers, as written by someone with a particular agenda to push. Littered with quotes from serial killers themselves, as well as real world examples, Killing for Sport is a somewhat blandly-written look at the world of murderers.
I guess as one of the most horrifying types of criminal in society - the serial killer - these murderers are at least a curios Review originally posted at Book of Bogan A convenient set of Frequently Apparently Asked Questions about the lives, loves and crimes of serial killers, as written by someone with a particular agenda to push.
I guess as one of the most horrifying types of criminal in society - the serial killer - these murderers are at least a curiosity, if not a fascination for members of regular society. There are plenty of movie franchises, and book series about hunts for serial killers, and most people could rattle off half a dozen if asked - from BTK, the Boston Strangler, Jack the Ripper, the Zodiac Killer, Charles Manson and friends, just to name a few.
The question that this book seeks to answer, however, is how much we really know about what goes on inside serial killers' heads, beyond the fictional fantasy we see in the popular media. I guess in considering where the value of the book lies, one has to look at the author, who is a criminal profiler in her own right, and she brings a lot of that sensibility to the book, although she is not afraid of a little self-aggrandising at times. Which is not to say that serial killers are worthy of anything more than our contempt, but her style really does start to wear on you after a while. On the matter of style, I found that it was largely organised as a FAQ, with a few snippets of information and snark posed as responses to questions that she feels are the most commonly asked, or most common misconceptions.
While I found the book informative, and more than a little disturbing, I also found that it became repetitive, and could have been organised more around topical chapters, rather than the way it was.
If you are looking for information about specific cases or individuals, there are probably far better works on those. On the other hand, this is a competent, if dry, primer on the topic as a whole. Interesting, with some sarcastic humor thrown in ranging from wry to snide , and picks apart common 'common sense' aspects of criminal profiling that may not be as valuable in the trade as they tend to be portrayed in both fiction and reality.
However, while the author is apparently a criminal profiler herself and undoubtedly has a lot of experience and knowledge on her subject, most of what she portrays as fact in the book is not backed up by any examples, whether nationally famous 2. However, while the author is apparently a criminal profiler herself and undoubtedly has a lot of experience and knowledge on her subject, most of what she portrays as fact in the book is not backed up by any examples, whether nationally famous, or even perhaps from lesser known murders that she herself has studied. It comes off less as "here, I know what I'm talking about and I'll professionally show you exactly what you need to know in this book" and more "here are all my opinionated ramblings that would probably be better in online blog format".
Albert DeSalvo is mentioned here and there, even though it's been disputed whether he was actually the Boston Strangler.
Killing for Sport: Inside the Minds of Serial Killers by Pat Brown
The lack of references weakens her case that "these specific points about serial killers are all true" without actual serial killers being pointed at, outside of a select few. Plus, in the beginning of the book, I'm pretty sure it was mentioned "I'll show you exactly how to notice a serial killer by showing you how their minds work" or something to that effect Oct 10, Mark rated it really liked it. Killing for Sport is an excellent overview of the subject of the losers who kill.
Profiling is vastly overrated by Hollywood and the media in general. It can be a useful tool, but most profilers are not much better than a psychic. The good ones are those who spend time with a case, learn all there is to know and then don't over-state their conclusions. Brown did categorically state that there is no murder case that has been solved by a psychic. The good psychics are those who have done their due Killing for Sport is an excellent overview of the subject of the losers who kill. The good psychics are those who have done their due diligence, gone to the area of the crimes and maybe got a peak at the police file before they make their "psychic" guesses.

However it still is a good read. Giving tips to the reader as well as ideas and street smart reasonings.

If you are into the psychology behind the crime and are turned off by large crazy medical terms and yearn for simple but complete explanations this is definitly a book for you.
Not my first choice on the subject but far from my last, its worth the read. Feb 01, Jlsimon rated it really liked it Shelves: This book answers tons of questions about myths and facts regarding serial killers. To be honest, it wasn't anything I didn't already know. But it is interesting the things that are thought to be fact based on the television rendition of the serial killer profiling programs. That being said, I enjoyed the author's wit and humor, but got pretty bored of the review by the end of the book.
It's a good thing it was a short one or I never would have finished it. However, I did stick with it. Would not recommend it. Non-fiction book that gives a bit of a look at serial killers. A bit arrogant in the presentation. She is a profiler yet, hasn't profiled any of the big ones that she sites in the book it seems. I enjoyed the learning of it however and it tied in well with my criminal justice investigations class.
I think the author offered different point of view to public knowledge.
Very good book, well written, easy to understand and without necessary discussion around. Very straight, based on experiences. I enjoyed every minute of the reading, even by enjoying I mean ability to feel what's behind the words.
