I loved this textbook. I purchased this textbook for an "Intro to Forensic Science" class and learned so much useful things. True, not being a medical sciences major has a disadvantage, as some of the more technical (medical or chemistry) information went a bit over my head, but I largely was able to digest and acquire a great deals of learning through it.

It's definitely worth the price and I can recommend it based on the large amount of scientific and medical information it contains. Enjoy!

This book was for a class I'm taking. The book is well written and has good details. It is NOT for young people. There are some disturbing pictures in it but they relate to the text. It is forensic's and it's not always pretty to look at.

Book I needed for my college course. It has very good information about how evidence is extracted and taken into a lab. Covers all kinds of evidence ranging from fingerprints to bloodstains. A good buy!
