Good summary of essential principles and most of the assessment instruments on might use. Violence risk prediction has limitations, sure, but it's likely here to stay so it's best that people understand what those limitations are and what best practices look like. The interested reader and/or practitioner should, of course, also keep up on the research publications, but this book is an excellent starting point and resource.
