The book under review is what one would always like to have on ones desk. - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology. It is informative, factual, well-referenced, exhaustive and extremely well illustrated. - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology
Grasps ones attention not only because it gives practical tips throughout, but also because of its rich and profuse illustrations. - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology
Heartily recommended not only to trainees and younger pathologists, but also to senior pathologists - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and this book is going to my companion for the rest of my life. - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology
This book is, undoubtly, the most extensively illustrated textbook of forensic pathology so far. - Michael Tsokos, MD, Institute of Legal Medicine, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany
The book is well written and the references are up to date. It will benefit not only the experienced forensic pathologist, but also the clinical pathologist who occasionally performs medico-legal autopsies, forensic doctors in training, and law enforcement offcials investigating the broad spectrum of violent and sudden, unexpected deaths that fall within the jurisdiction of medico-legal death investigators. - Michael Tsokos, MD, Institute of Legal Medicine, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany
Dolinak, Matshes, and Lew did a good job. I am sure their textbook will prove its use in many instances not only to junior forensic pathologists at the beginning of their professional career, but also to certified and experienced forensic pathologists to obtain additional knowledge and refresh their expertise. - Michael Tsokos, MD, Institute of Legal Medicine, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany
Forensic Pathology: Principles and Practice is an extensively illustrated reference book that contains more than 1800 color photographs accompanied by well-considered text that thoroughly explains representative topics, and also provides abundant, up-to-date references for further reading. This well-written volume uses a case-oriented format to address, explain and guide the reader through the varied topics encountered by forensic pathologists. It will benefit not only the experienced forensic pathologist, but also the hospital pathologist who occasionally performs medicolegal autopsies. Doctors in training and those law enforcement officials investigating the broad spectrum of sudden, unexpected and violent deaths that may fall within the jurisdiction of medicolegal death investigators will also find this an invaluable resource.
