Review of Jekyll on Trial (Multiple Personality Disorder and Criminal Law)
At the outset of this review, you should know that I have a bias. This book was written by a law professor and a psychologist and I am a forensic psychiatrist. As a psychiatrist, my focus is on the biological and biochemical nature of mental illness. As a forensic psychiatrist I am focused on if not obsessed by the source of the subject of evaluation and the reason why he is in the evaluator's office. Neither of these issues are dealt with in this book.
