There is little more terrifying than those who hunt, stalk and snatch their prey under the cloak of darkness. These hunters search not for animals, but for the touch, taste, and empowerment of human flesh. They are cannibals, vampires and monsters, and they walk among us. <br /><br />These serial killers are not mythical beasts with horns and shaggy hair. They are people living among society, going about their day to day activities until nightfall. They are the Dennis Rader鈥檚, the fathers, husbands, church going members of the community. <br /><br />This A-Z encyclopedia of 150 serial killers is the ideal reference book. Included are the most famous true crime serial killers, like Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Richard Ramirez, and not to mention the women who kill, such as Aileen Wuornos and Martha Rendell. There are also lesser known serial killers, covering many countries around the world, so the range is broad.<br /><br />Each of the serial killer files includes information on when and how they killed the victims, the background of each killer, or the suspects in some cases such as the Zodiac killer, their trials and punishments. For some there are chilling quotes by the killers themselves. The Big Book of Serial Killers is an easy to follow collection of information on the world鈥檚 most heinous murderers.<br />

<b><i>The Bed of Procrustes聽</i>is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb鈥檚 landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don鈥檛 understand. The other books in the series are聽<i>Fooled by Randomness,聽The Black Swan,聽Antifragile,聽</i>and聽<i>Skin in the Game.</i></b><br /><br />By the author of the modern classic <i>The Black Swan</i>, this collection of aphorisms and meditations expresses his major ideas in ways you least expect.<br /><br /><i>The Bed of Procrustes</i> takes its title from Greek mythology: the story of a man who made his visitors fit his bed to perfection by either stretching them or cutting their limbs. It represents Taleb鈥檚 view of modern civilization鈥檚 hubristic side effects鈥攎odifying humans to satisfy technology, blaming reality for not fitting economic models, inventing diseases to sell drugs, defining intelligence as what can be tested in a classroom, and convincing people that employment is not slavery. <br /><br />Playful and irreverent, these aphorisms will surprise you by exposing self-delusions you have been living with but never recognized.<br /><br />With a rare combination of pointed wit and potent wisdom, Taleb plows through human illusions, contrasting the classical values of courage, elegance, and erudition against the modern diseases of nerdiness, philistinism, and phoniness.<br /><br /><b>鈥淭aleb鈥檚 crystalline nuggets of thought stand alone like esoteric poems.鈥濃€?lt;i>Financial Times</i></b>
