"This being said, given the challenges in locating an expert willing and able to be called by the defence on an issue involving forensic medicine, this text would certainly be a valuable addition to the criminal practitioner's library." (For the Defence, 2012)

"If you find this book up your street and valuable, as many of you will, look out for more: The editors intend there to be a follow up 'regular multi volume text addressing recent advances in the practice of forensic medicine'." (Expert Witness Newsletter, 1 March 2012)

"All in all, a very useful book. I would highly recommend this book not only to all forensic physicians, but to everyone practicing in this field. I would imagine that his book would be highly useful for lawyers, police, medical and dental practitioners, forensic scientists. I would also recommend this book to all undergraduate and postgraduate law and medical students preparing for forensic medicine examinations." (Anil Aggrawal's Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, 1 January 2012)

"Most of the topics are extremely useful for newly trained and in-training forensic pathologists. The book provides a concise summary of controversial topics with good references, although some chapters are less pertinent." (Doody's, 14 October 2011)

"The editors of this text have compiled an authoritative review of the topic, with contributions from leading international experts in the field. They provide enough detail about the forensic sciences to give practitioners some insight into these areas without attempting to turn them into experts." (Sydney Forensic Medicine and Science Network, 2011)

"Edited and written by leading international experts in the field, this in depth guide will provide an invaluable and authoritative, critique of topical areas of forensic medicine that are of key interest to practitioners throughout the world." (, 22 February 2011)
