Human Identification: Putting a Name and Face on Death based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
An excellent introductory book on Forensic Sciences. Review originally featured on Bookluvrs Haven. Alright, so to be fair, when I requested this book I didn't realize it was a science title meant for higher grades. I thought it was for adults. After all, it speaks of forensic science and suspicious death. But it is in fact an introductory sort of book about forensics. Like a Forensics 101 book. Though the subject matter was interesting, I was pretty bored some of the time. Since I have a College degree in Police Studies, I was familiar with a lot that was meticulously described in these pages. I did skim a lot of the dry information (dry for me anyways) and focused more on the case studies in this book. Not to mention some pretty graphic pics that were interesting to me, and hopefully not too graphic for kids, though I am not sure if "higher grades" means highschool age? In any case, the case studies earned the 3 star, because they kept me interested in reading this to the end. Very cool book though if you want to know a lot more about forensic sciences, and it is written quite well, with plenty of visual illustrations to keep you focused. *I received a eBook copy of this book for free to review from the author/publisher; this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.*
