Helen Morrison produces controversial theories as to why people commit multiple murders, having interviewed some of the most notorious killers in the world.  Are serial killers born?   Does child abuse really play a part in the formation of a killer's psyche?  Are serial killers neurologically different from the rest of humanity?  Helen Morrison provides her opinions on these and many other questions in her detailed portrayal of the 21 murderers featured in the book.

This book will not tell anyone anything that they don't already know, and it is not well written, it is quaranteed to be a waste of 4 or 5 hours.

Helen Morrison's "My Life Among The Serial Killers" is by far one of the most disturbing books I've ever read. This not due to the subject matter at hand (serial killers) but because I am dumbfounded that this arrogant ignoramus is a certified psychiatrist. Where is Christman Genipperteinga who murdered over 600 wayfarers in his native German village in the 1600s? What of Yemenite Zu Shenatir (500 AD), Icelandic Björn Petursson (1500s) and so many others? Studying them and their crimes in the light of the times and culture they were born into might have been utterly revelaing already.

My Life Among the Serial Killers: Inside the Minds of the World's Most Notorious Murderers is a book written by Helen Morrison and Harold Goldberg. It presents the cases of ten serial killers, and touches on many more. Morrison spent hundreds of hours in face-to-face interviews, over many years, with several of the subjects. She uses the individual stories to explain and put forth her ideas on what makes a serial killer. The book has received criticism for being factually inaccurate on several topics.

My co-worker recommended this book. Morrison does a nice job of giving insight on these individuals and I like how she also has some information on historic SKS. This book can get a bit gruesome with details so beware.

Dr. Morrison has strong opinions, which she doesn't bother back up with scientific explanation or statistical proof, and occasionally is misinformed or confused. Two that were obvious: farmland in 1977 in rural McHenry was priced at $1.50 per acre, "$1.80 if the farmer was very fortunate". Growing up in this area I knew that she was mistaken. Google discussed how growth which made farmland more valuable led to the Farmland Assessment Act of 1977 (a change in the tax code in assessing the value of farmland for taxation, this discussion noted that farmland that had previously been worth $720 an acre was worth $2041 by 1977). She also insists several times that "serial killers never commit suicide before being apprehended, and they rarely kill themselves in prison." Just off the top of my head, I can think of two (Christopher Wilder and Andrew Cunanan) who committed suicide before being arrested. 2012 suicide statistics are 13 per 100,000 in the general population, but 4.4% for serial killers (a study by David Lester reported by Dr. Katherine Ramsland in Psychology Today).
Despite having a co-author the language is frequented convoluted, inelegant, and unclear. A typical example follows: "Time reported that the network of communication among Chinese authorities to which police have access is less than stellar........It happens to this day in the United States to a lesser extent, possibly because China's communications infrastructure isn't as advanced as is ours."
If the author had an explanation for serial killing, which she defended by statistical and even anecdotal evidence, my two complaints above would pale in insignificance to the value of her discoveries.
But her "discoveries" are never supported by any scientific evidence, or even a cogent explanation for why she holds the opinions that she does. Her conclusions about serial killers: they don't have motives, they have no personality structures, they are not psychopaths, which she states have the ability to control what they do, think, and feel, they are above average intelligence, they are not psychologically complete human beings, despite having the ability to mimic or play roles, they have not all been abused by early caretakers, they are addicted to killing and can not control their actions, serial killing is a world-wide phenomenon, which has occurred throughout history.
Some of these ideas are apparently true, but she did not originate them. However, her claim that serial killers function from a primitive emotional developmental place (she compares them to a 3-6 month old infant) is interesting, but is not even briefly explained or developed. Many have noted these killers' stunted or absent empathy. However, many unpleasant people have little empathy, but many do not commit crimes against their fellow man. Another idea she presents is that there may be some fundamental genetic difference, either something extra they have, or something they lack, but admits that we are not yet close to knowing what that is. The author states she has interviewed 80 killers, but there are few quotes from the interviews that would shed any light on anything.
An amusing paragraph has Dr. Morrison waxing indignant over a Brazilian killer's demand to be paid for an interview "it's the kind of thing that could ruin a reputation, and it was silly for Marcus to think that I would agree to his unscrupulous demands". This book will not tell anyone anything that they don't already know, and it is not well written, it is quaranteed to be a waste of 4 or 5 hours.

This book is phenomenal. Very objective but give insight to the personal relationship developed with each individual. I learned so much about each person and the general psyche of a serial killer. It was well written, easy to understand, and I did not want it to end. It’s one of those books that you can go back to a single chapter and not be missing out on a story plot, but still learn something by reading it again.
Dorilune
It was a very informative book. She kept it understandable and a objective view on the subject and didn't inject a lot unnecessary personal emotions and spoke candidly with facts

Thoroughly enjoyed this book! Dr Morrison is a very interesting woman with intriguing experiences. I just wish she'd write more books.

Overall this was a really good book. There was a lot of good information, medical an otherwise about serial killers. I use this book for a sociology project, and it was very helpful. while I don't necessarily agree with all the conclusions Dr Morrison made in this book, she leaves enough room for the reader to form their own opinions and rationalize their own conclusions. The only reason this book didn't receive 5 stars is because I felt the content could have been organized a little bit better.

Read this before, many years ago and it still is a great book.
This is one of the best real life books I have read! I have been in law enforcement for over 40 years. I have investigated more deaths then I care to remember. I thought I had experienced every horrible acts that one human can do to another. Dr. Morrison's opened my eyes! Thank you!
