«Fascinating ... Has profound implications ... It is remarkable that most of the work Raine outlines remains largely unknown to the wider public ... It is high time this defect was remedied»

David Rose, Mail on Sunday

«This remarkable book offers startling evidence of the links between our biology and criminality ... powerful and well-written ... I commend his intelllectual courage»

«Adrian Raine has devoted his career to uncovering the causes of human violence ... This important book is a most valuable contribution»

Daniel Dennett, Prospect
