The text is quite readable and free of jargon... Hall and Poirier unfold their approach without rancor toward other clinicians or toward clients, and they do much to rectify the stuffy, overlitigious image of forensic psychology in their humane and sensible stance. They do a marked service by reassuring therapists relationship; in the process of seeking the truth, forensic specialists do not have to abandon decency. I recommend this carefully written and thorough text to all therapists who may themselves be drawn, or see clients who may be drawn, into the forensic arena.

It can be indeed a daunting task to compile a text appropriately bridging [psychology/psychiatry and the judicial system], two seemingly disparate worlds; yet Hall and Poirier accomplished just that with their updated volume. The quality and scope of this work sustained their conviction that not only was this doable, but it was possible to do it exceedingly well. They have produced a reference work, copiously detailed with an abundance of practical 'how to' information that both the novice and the seasoned practitioner concerned with detecting malingering will find invaluable.
