Is there a genetic predisposition to crime? Should mental illness be taken into account? Do family and social environments have a role? Do people become abusers because they have been abused? How can people who do terrible things consider themselves good people? What should someone involved in a relationship with a criminal know? Stanton Samenow, co-author of the widely respected three-volume study of The Criminal Personality, has collected the questions posed by audiences during his speaking engagements of the past twenty-eight years about causes, characteristics, and treatments of antisocial behavior. Now he draws on his research and clinical experience with hundreds of men, women, and children to offer no-frills answers that embody his informed perspectives on some of the toughest policy issues facing individuals, institutions, and governments today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dr. Samenow knows more about the criminal personality than anyone I know. The 'straight talk about criminals' he gives us, after spending more than twenty-seven years interviewing, evaluating, and treating men, women, and children convicted of a variety of crimes, is a must-read for anyone working with convicted felons as well as for the lay person with questions about the criminal personality and how it got to be that way. -- John Douglas, Ed.D., former chief, FBI Investigative Support Unit
Stanton Samenow drives home with unprecedented power the revolutionary discovery of his clinical experience-namely, that to treat the antisocial individual we must understand the self-serving distortions of the criminal mind. Only recently has cognitive-behavioral research caught up with and confirmed Samenow's discovery, which is lucidly articulated and expanded through a straightforward question-and-answer format. Straight Talk About Criminals should be required reading for anyone who would work with chronic offenders. -- John C. Gibbs, Ph.D., Ohio State University
