      Oh man I love true crime so I was pretty excited to pick this up and it was great because there was actually a lot of things in there that I didn't know about. While the book covers really big cases like Ted Bundy, Jeffery Dahmer, Pablo Escobar, Bernie Madoff, the assassination of JFK, etc; ther were also a lot of cases I didn't know about. I really enjoyed reading about Phoolam Devi and Doris Payne because usually when I read true crime books its all men, especially white doing these things. It [...]

      The Crime Book by DK Publishing2 starsThe Crime Book is clocks in with over 300 pages of crime. This novel covers an expansive range of different crimes and is covered in a newspaper format that feels very much like you are sitting down with a cup of coffee/tea/whatever and you are flipping through the newspaper witnessing coverage. It’s a very interesting format and I commend DK Publishing for taking the time and effort to make every page, timeline, photograph, and work of art standout and be [...]

      I love crime! Okay, not crime itself, but I do like hearing about the intricate details of crime stories that have already occurred. I am a true crime junkie, so I knew when I spotted this book that I needed to read it since it is a book solely about crime. I was not disappointed. This book is so much fun for anyone who is a crime buff. Basically, it is an encyclopedia of all different types of crime stories from your white-collar crimes to your serial killers. They are snippets for the most par [...]

      Read part of this book on my plane ride home and it was a great distraction. So easy to read and well explained!

      * I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*I'm just going to start this review out by saying that I read this in less than 24-hours. Soah.I loved this book so much. I am a true crime junkie - I follow true crime podcasts, authors, and I've watched every episode of 'Snapped' and 'Forensic Files' that have ever been aired - that being said, this book actually contained some stories I'd never heard of before. That's not an easy feat!What I enjoyed so much about this one [...]

      I didn’t know DK did anything but travel books, though this follows the format set by those.The most intriguing fact hits right at the beginning: the first known homicide occurred 430,000 years ago.This book turned out to have a pretty standard design, in the form of a reference book: one- or two-page chapters on famous criminals or crimes, with panels featuring similar acts. Each chapter is led with a meaningful title and an even more meaningful drawing, a caricature of the crime in question; [...]

      The Crime Book by DK; Cathy Scott, was a great, interesting read. I found many of the articles very fascinating . There were many cases that I have heard about , but did not really know too much about. There were many crimes that had took place long before many of us were born (1800's for example). Other cases were in our life times. I like how this book read like a magazine of archived crimes with detailed information, images and diagrams. I was able to finish the book in two days. I enjoy read [...]

      This is a must have for any true crime reader/lover of true crime genre. It has all kinds of crimes and a brief synopsis of the criminal. Very in-depth and good reading. I found myself saying one more page and many pages later I was still reading. The book is broken down in various crimes, ie: Bandits, robbers and arsonist, murder cases, serial killers, etc. There is something for everyone. What i found very different and interesting was the concept of providing the location of the crime, other [...]

    • Teresa says:

      A terribly interesting book. I only say terrible because of the subject matter. The book is all about crime. All of the crimes people have heard about from Grave robbing to Aileen Wuornos and everything before, during, and after. The book gives you a pretty full story of each crime, when, where, how, and when they were stopped as well as how they were judged in court. The book is broken down into sections like robberies, serial killers, and more. I personally couldn't put the book down once I st [...]

      I've read other nonfiction/reference books by published by DK, such as Do Not Open and Pick Me Up. Like them, this compendium is full of fascinating facts and information. Similar to short story collections, it is not necessary to read this book in order; in fact, it can be even more fun to flip to random pages and learn about something completely new and different. This is a great coffee table book and belongs on any true crime lover's shelf! Thank you to Netgalley and DK Publishing for an ARC [...]

      A succinct and captivating encyclopedia of crime written by five true crime authors. Broken down into 8 categories of crime, The Crime Book, provides a brief description and breakdown of various crimes, making it the perfect jumping off point for further reading or research into specific crimes. Perfect for any true crime fan.

    • Elyssa (Elyssa's Editions) says:

      I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of The Crime Book after hearing such amazing things about it! Some of the chapters made me learn a ton about crimes I’m less familiar with (white collar, for example) and in other cases, I poured over the details to learn more about a crime I had only a superficial understanding of (Black Dahlia, for example). The graphics and set up in this book are so easy to follow and make it a great book to read cover-to-cover or to just flip through as more of a [...]

      Crime StoriesGood overall recap of famous criminal activities. In some cases, the provides insight and perspective from the criminal mind. Well organized for review of stories.

    • Noorilhuda says:

      Nicely categorized and readable. No Benazir Bhutto in assassinations. Or the strange case of self-confessed killer Javed Iqbal in serial killers / child abductors.

    • The Time Traveler says:

      Do the Time to Read this CrimeCategorizes and timelines the history of crime with the most notable criminals. Ranges from con artistry to sick-twisted serial rapist/killers.

    • Zoe says:

      4.5The recounts of each criminal was interesting and well delivered however the editing could have been better

    • Karen says:

      Soy una fanática de Investigation Discovery, así que cuando vi este libro supe que debía leerlo. Dividido en secciones y dejando en evidencia los crímenes más prominentes que han ocurrido a través de la historia, es una lectura que despierta interés en la naturaleza humana.

    • Meow says:

      I love reading about crime and twisted minds! And this book, my oh my what a handy-dandy fun fact filled book featuring so much crime through the years! I thought this was very well done with outstanding graphics!Thanks to NetGalley and DK Publishing for the early view!

    • Kristine says:

      The Crime Book by DK, et. al. is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late April.Wicked cool! The multiple contributors to this book create introductions for a series of people who share an involvement in a simple kind of crime (privateering, arson, crime sprees, serial killers, organized crime, theft, etc.), before going into a dossier-style 1-2 description of a pair/group/duo with much insight onto the present-day goings-on and what might have had an effect on the criminal's motive.
