- Customer Reviews:
…James and Nordby have enlisted the hemisphere's leading experts in his or her individual field of expertise to explain and educate the reader to the topic at hand … I found the book to be concise, very informative, and easy to understand … For the college/university student, this book has the potential to be ranked as the 'must have' textbook … As a former crime scene investigator and current adjunct instructor, I believe this book to be a noteworthy addition to any private or agency library. Accordingly, it could easily fulfill the curriculum mandate for a general forensic science class at either the freshman or second-year post-secondary school level … the third edition of Forensic Science: An Introduction to Scientific and Investigative Techniques is not only a premiere reference textbook, but with its palatable price tag, this reference manual makes for a worthwhile academic investment either in or out of the classroom.
―Craig C. Moore, Constable, Niagara Regional Police Service, Ontario, Canada, Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal, Vol. 43 No. 1, March 2010
