Dr. Di Maio's vast knowledge and practical experience led to his first edition becoming mandatory reading within the forensic firearms community. This information, coupled with newly published research, has made this book the most current and comprehensive text on gunshot wounds.

Jurors often give more weight to government "experts". I have never found the government's witnesses reliable. DiMaio knows his subject in the greatest detail.
Therefore in my opinion, Dr Di Maio's book, 'Gunshot Wounds': Practical Aspects of Firearms, Ballistics, and Forensic, Techniques, is a very valuable and useful text, and an indispensably guide for anyone involved in Ballistic Investigative duties.
