A specialist in questioned documents, Morris reviews he basic concepts of what affect people's writing, such as how they hold the pen; position the paper; move their fingers, hand, wrist; and so on. The examiner, he explains, should be able to visual the movements of the writer, evaluate pen direction, and determine the significance of such factors as relative relationships between the various parts of writing and the influence of writing on paper with or without a pre-drawn base.
