From one of the book's chapter authors
This book contains a variety of viewpoints regarding the CSI series, some of the differences between 'real life crime scene investigation' and that on television, and the CSI series' impact on our lives. The second chapter, titled 'The CSI Effect' was written by one of the original CSIs (yours truly), who worked at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department when CSI creator Anthony Zuiker was riding with Crime Scene Analysts (CSI) to conduct research for his pilot and initial series episodes. A three-part definition and detailed description is provided for the 'CSI Effect'. One part of the chapter, 'Why Cops, Prosecutors, and Real CSIs Hate the World's Most Popular TV Show' asks and answers some very candid questions directed to law enforcement professionals. Some in law enforcement will hate this chapter just as much as they dislike the CSI shows, if they don't open their minds and stop believing their own stereotypical and misinformed ideas about this fictional and entertaining television series. If you love CSI, this book is definitely for you. If you don't like the shows, I dare you to read the book. I'm sure you'll come away with a different perspective.Was this review helpful?
