      As I understood the poster's question, he wants to know HOW to go
      through this learning process, and whether the publications mentioned
      would be of value in that respect. I believe my comment about the
      items available on the net did not endorse any and all material to be
      found there - just that there is material to be found on the net that
      is at least as informative as that found in the cited publications -
      which also have information that is "plain incorrect" as you so kindly
      put it.

      I expect the fact that you have not personally read the Thomas/Riddle
      book supports my argument that the best instruction in this area is
      that where you can ask questions of an instructor, get feed-back, get
      the benefit of that person's personal experience, and so on.

      Your reference to the criminal justice class also indicates you
      endorse hands-on education, where the instructor uses publications as
      reference, but not as a substitute for one on one teacher-student
      interaction. So I don't think we are really in disageement on these
