Review of The Scientific Expert in Court, Principles and Guidelines
You could fill a small room with the books an expert witness testimony that have appeared in the last two years. This reviewer has read many and reviewed several. In terms of volume of text, this book is one of the smaller ones. Ninety-two pages including Index and Appendices. But this is a Guide Book and not a library reference text. The author, a very experienced forensic pathologist and seasoned expert witness, covers all of the important topics. The book is aimed at the novice expert witness and hits the target in providing basic guidelines to prepare for a court appearance.
