5.0 out of 5 stars In Depth, 12 May 2004

This review is from: Knight's Forensic Pathology, 3Ed (Hardcover)
This edition improves upon previous editions with many full colour photographs, and of course updated Pathological techniques. As a medical student with an interest in forensic pathology I find Knight shares his enourmous experience in a no-nonsense fashion, that makes the text both fascinating and easy to read. Every part of the autopsy is covered, as are all injury types and causes of death. The only thing that put's one off is the price tag, but it is no different than other high quality specialist texts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 20 Feb 2010
By 
Mr. A. J. Mcleod (Basildon, Essex United Kingdom) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Knight's Forensic Pathology, 3Ed (Hardcover)
For anyone wanting to be a forensic pathologist (or fiction writers in the field) this is quite simply the very best textbook. The main author has more letters after his name than in it and is a former consultant to the Home Office.

In terms of what is in it:

34 chapters including the forensic autopsy, establishing identity and time of death, infanticide, child abuse, torture, deaths with a sexual component, and virtually every cause of death imaginable from electrocution, asphyxiation, poisoning and barotrauma to firearms, explosions and drowning.

What makes this better is the no-nonsense style. The authors tell it like it is - they are not afraid to contradict outdated ideas and add a wealth of personal cases to make things even more interesting. The language is simple enough that a lay-reader interested in the topic could get through it with no more than occasional recourse to a medical dictionary.

The final thing that makes this book so great are the pictures - each one chosen to illustrate a point perfectly from ligature marks to the types of burn caused by electricity. They might be a bit shocking to the lay reader but are perfectly in context.

If you buy one book on forensic pathology this should be it.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knight's Forensic Pathology, 3Ed (Hardcover)
Being in the area and now attending Master Degree classes this is a must have. This is THE book to have if you have any interest in Pathology. It's VERY well written, VERY well ilustrated and have tons of references to go for.

Besides being a bit heavy, no other issues.
Great buy!
