The Serial Killer Files: The Who, What, Where, How, and Why of the Worlds Most Terrifying Murderers by Harold SchechterThis book exceeded all my expectations. When looking for a book about serial killers, I was mainly looking for reasons why they did what they did. I found those reasons and so much more. Not only did the author include the psychology sections that I was looking for, they also provided cultural information, like why are people so fascinated by serial killers and how long has this been going on(which the author pointed out that it has been going on practically forever). The author had information about the popular killers, like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer, and also ones that are not as heard of. Although the book was completely disturbing and disgusting, it held my interest all the way until the end.
I also particularly liked that the author included further reading and a bibliography in the back, although I dont think that I need to know any more about serial killers at this point. Very good read and I recommend it to people who are interested in serial killers as long as they can stomach the great amount of horrific details.

Common Sense says
Imagine you confront your enemy--a giant, scary robot from outer space--and he becomes your best pal. A young boy befriends a monster in the heartwarming animated feature The Iron Giant. October, Hearing stories of a UFO that crashed into the sea, Hogarth, always on the lookout for mutant aliens, finds a huge, metal-eating robot Vin Diesel with an insatiable curiosity and equally insatiable appetite. But the extraterrestrial's presence unleashes a wave of Cold War paranoia that threatens to engulf Rockwell unless Hogarth and his foot friend can stop it.
And our story was not familiar to most audiences, other than in England. And then for us to set it in , and have it deal with things like the Cold War, was definitely not considered the kind of things you do in an animated film. Where is the fairy tale? Where is the magic? You know, you assemble your creative team, you make the film, and then the team disbands. So they were trying to follow the Disney model of having a division. He had one-third the budget and half the time of the typical animated feature, and a crew of mostly young and inexperienced animators.
