The introduction of colour not only immensely increases the quality of the illustrations but effectively transforms this very popular text into an atlas of forensic pathology as well as a comprehensive reference for forensic medicine in general.
Journal of the Canadian Society of Forensic Medici
An example of clarity and contains as much information as one could possibly hope to find in a book of just over 200 pages. Simpson’s Forensic Medicine has been rejuvenated and this face-lift will carry it through into the new century
St. George’s Hospital Gazette (review of previous
As one reads through this classic, one finds that the new print layout greatly enhances one’s ability to use the book. This is an excellent reworking of a classic text that remains a standard introductory reference guide to the world of forensic medicine…hopefully it will find a new audience on recommended reading lists throughout the world…I thus strongly recommend this book
The Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists
The twelfth edition admirably meets the challenge of acheiving the high standards set by its earlier counterparts…medical students and junior doctors in all specialities would do well to persue the pages of this book, which will also be of value to the police, and to lawyers seeking an introductory understanding to the principles of forensic medicine.
