Especially when you compare it to Cullenbine. I've looked at multiple sites and Jeff Kass book was rated poorly compared to Cullenbine.

Truly unbelievable. Kass' book is the closest to find the most legitimate Columbine research, and yet everyone likes Cullenbine's BS made up fanfiction.

I don't know.
I think Kass book was a good quality book, although I did not like or approve of how he portrays the parents of E &D in the book.
The only thing I can come up with is that Kass didn't claim to have the mystery of Columbine tied up in a neat bow and he had a lot more advertising and media hype than Kass.

Good point.

Anyone else? Is It really just because that quack Cullen advertised himself on everything based on Columbine?

I think it really has a lot to do with the media hype and Cullen talking into every mic available to him. Both books came out around the same time and Cullen clearly stole the show with his "I'm the expert, ask me"-attitude. To me, Kass did a lot more journalist's work and what I specifically like about his book is that it presents information - it doesn't pretend to having read E & D's minds. But maybe that is exactly what most readers wanted: an explanation, an interpretation of their mindsets -even at the price of getting a fiction.

I am currently reading his book as a pdf and I got really confused.. What was the names of two people who have been with Dave Sanders, giving him first aid? I'm sure it was Aaron ? In the pdf version he claimed it was 2 Kevins

I really like Kass' book.... I also have Cullen's book and after read the other one, I can see how he portrays Dylan as "innocent". It is a shame that he couldn't get past the opinions that all of Dylan's family and friends portrayed him as and look at his journal objectively... Both of them were angry at the world

Well, reading Kass's book now, in what is something of a binge-reading of various books related to similar issues. (Given recent RL stuff, I spend a lot of time commuting especially on weekends, but almost always this emans a place to sit and read).

I'll keep you guys posted once I read through it. So far the langauge he uses is crisp and fluent, but I can't judge yet as far as his overall picture.
