There are probably few people as qualified to write a book on quality assurance as Dr. Taylor because of his long association with the National Bureau of Standards. In this book, the author has presented everything one would want or need to know about the subject. The book is intended for use principally by “producers and users of chemical measurement data.” Since such a small proportion of the work of a forensic science laboratory is based upon quantitative chemical measurements it might be assumed that this book would have limited appeal to forensic scientists. However, forensic scientists are concerned about quality and most, if not all, laboratories have some form of quality assurance program. Thus, some of the material presented could be of value to them.
