This book is for any potential students who wish to explore careers in Forensic Science. I purschased this book out of plain curiosity, and this field of science is truly amazing to practically no end. Forensic Science is a fascinating career to discover, and if you are the type of student who needs constant stimulation then you should read this book.

Quite a short book, but it's not a huge topic. Oriented towards the forensic science arena in the USA, it doesn't offer any tips for internationalizing its summaries, so the international reader is left with little idea of the differences in the way the field is structured. That said, it does summarize the opportunities available for general criminalists, pathologists, toxicologists, crime scene managers and so on, and gives rough salary, training estimates, brief job descriptions, along with example job advertisements for each section.
