Two recent books, the subjects of this review, address the implications of a parallel question: What do we know about sex offender treatment? Both books should be read carefully by all sex offender treatment providers, and both are worthy of consideration by policymakers. However, these works do not consistently show the type of skepticism essential to evaluating treatment programs and shaping public policy; consequently, they must not be taken as the definitive word on the subject.
