    Abstract

    The first edition of this text (published by Elsevier in 1990) is probably in every footwear examiner's library, so it is easy to say that the second edition belongs there too. Small improvements were made throughout, although the first edition will no doubt remain a classic reference, a benchmark in its time. Alas, Tempus Fugit, and the new edition is necessary to provide many needed updates to the original text, particularly in the chapter on enhancement of impressions. The new edition's format is a little larger than the first edition, allowing some of the photographs to be enlarged, although the contrast is higher in the original so the improvement is debatable. Three new chapters added at the end of the book represent the major change to the work. The chapter devoted to the evidence in the 0. J. Simpson case is a highlight of course. If you have the first edition and like it, by all means get the second edition.
