    Educational and surprisingly funny

    I love forensic case histories and explanations, and found quite a few thoroughly outlined in this book. It was a bonus to find that Dr. Bass has a great sense of humor, and while some might find his wit slightly morbid I never found it overblown, inappropriate or disrespectful. The material is interesting and unexaggerated; one does not get the sense that things are blown out of proportion as can be the case with some true-crime forensic shockers. This book whetted my appetite for more like it.

    Forensics at its best.

    This book is not like the books with the main character of Dr. Brockton. This book is about the writer of Dr. Brockton's character and the work he himself has done as a forensic pathologist. Dr. Bill Bass will do forensic cases and as a reader you will enter into his world and follow him as he does the actual work. The reader has to like forensics to both understand what he is doing and be ready for the gory things that go along with this line of work. The book is fascinating and a great read. Dr. Bass has a way of making these gory things interesting and you find yourself getting caught up in the cases he presents in the book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who watches shows like CSI to get an idea of what it is really like.

    Excellent Read

    If you are interested in forensics, this is a must! The book is nothing short of excellent. It's very entertaining, well written with wit thrown in. I could not put this book down until I finished. I look forward to more works by the author (HINT HINT).
