Wonderful book and has a great information package inside.
Beverly A. Minton
This book gives one a strong foundation, and the photographs are an excellent source of information, of which to look at after reading the descriptions.

Recommended for laymen of all kinds who need a good reference work on forensic pathology.

Format: Hardcover
This book, originally loaned to me by a police professional, is an excellent resource for a variety of readers who are involved with criminal investigations but don't really have all the tools and training of a full-time medical examiner. In my case, as a crime author, the text was an invaluable reference, putting some highly technical material into easily digested context. The collection of photographs, while occasionally grisly, provides an excellent visual reference. Recommended for laymen of all kinds who need a good reference work on forensic pathology.

If your idea of forensics is CSI on television, this book is not for you. If you are studying forensic science, or need an excellent reference book, by all means - buy it. This book gives one a strong foundation, and the photographs are an excellent source of information, of which to look at after reading the descriptions.

The second edition is a definite improvment over the first.If you are looking for a chapter on gunshot wounds, it is not here. However, DiMaio has written the standard on evaluating gunshot wounds: Gunshot Wounds: Practical Aspects of Firearms, Ballistics, and Forensic Techniques.

Format: Hardcover
This book didn't beat around the bush at all. It took you right into the morbid details of death. Every subject I can think of regarding death was explained in this book. The pictures were mostly black and white but the detail in them was still enough to stir my stomach.
This book went from babies to burns, from rapes to stabbings, from gunshots to suffocation. It told you how things were done and why evidence was placed the way that it was.
This book was in textbook form and I believe that it is actually used for students to learn with. In saying that, you can not only learn with this book but you can also keep yourself interested with having some death questions answered.
Overall, a wonderful book for someone looking to get into the forensic field, or for someone just interested in death and how some things happen.

great book to understand true forensic pathology. I bought it for a gift and had to restrain myself from reading it (pretty tacky to give a gift that's been pawed over and has a broken binding).

This is a wonderful book for anyone learning this relatively small field of medical science. It is useful to study for exams and to better understand basic day to day work.
