Description:

Peer into the minds of teen killers like Pearl, Mississippi school shooter Luke Woodham with researcher Phil Chalmers as your guide to understand the motives behind, and possibly prevent, their horrifying violence.Luke Woodham, a pudgy 16-year-old, woke up one day, slit his mother's throat, and then drove to school, where he shot 9 people, including his girlfriend. Why? In Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer, Chalmers, who has been interviewing teen murderers and serial killers for over a decade, recounts Woodham's gripping and horrifying story, plumbing his motives, and peering into the killer's mind. Chalmers also weaves into the narrative his reasearch about teen culture, including comparisons with other teen killers, to analyze the disturbing ascent of teen violence and offer ways that we, as individuals, leaders, and communities, can help defuse this alarming trend.Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer is a culmination of Phil Chalmers' fifteen-year study on teen murder and school violence.  This is an anti-violence project aimed at teens, parents, youth workers, teachers, and law enforcement. The most unique part of the book is the words of the killers themselves, explaining why they committed the crimes, what led them to murder, and how we could have helped them. The goal of this book is to educate America and the world on the growing problem of teen murder and school violence, and hopefully stop teen murder and save innocent lives. Phil interviewed nearly 200 teen killers and school shooters for this book, and it's sure to change the way America and the world thinks about the growing trend of juvenile homicide.Book release date to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of Columbine, April 20, 2009."Phil Chalmers has interviewed the killers. He has corresponded with them extensively. He has exhaustively researched their crimes. There is no human being alive who knows more about these killers, and as you read this book, you will truly be taken "Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer."  Lt. Col Dave Grossman, U.S. Army (retired), murder expert, and author of "On Killing" and "Stop Teaching Our Kids To Kill""I am not insane, I am angry. I killed because people like me are mistreated every day. I did this to show society, 'push us and we will push back'...All throughout my life I was ridiculed, always beaten, always hated...It was a scream in sheer agony saying that if you can't pry your eyes open, if I can't do it through pacifism, if I can's show you through the displaying of intelligence, then I will do it with a bullet."  Pearl, Mississippi school shooter Luke Woodham
