    Abstract

    There are a number of major defects in this book. They all stem from the author's lack of knowledge of the subject. He is obviously unfamiliar with weapons and ammunition. His handling of the wounding effects of firearms is superficial. There is no in-depth treatment of any important subject. What the author has done is to compile a number of well-known facts—and some errors—from many forensic sources. To this he has added generous padding, consisting of information only tenuously related to the subject of the book, and photographs of poor quality.
