What People are Saying About This

Richard Rosner

Robert Simon M.D., is widely recognized as a leader in contemporary American forensic psychiatry. This second edition of his already classic book builds and extends it value for clinicians and educators. It is one of the volumes that I will continue to recommend to my students and colleagues. He is to be congratulated for his on-going contribution in our field.

J. A. Brown

A vital resource for any forensics expert who testifies in court to understand lines of questioning by attorneys, as well as for psychological forensics experts who must perform retrospective psychological analyses.(Education America, CHOICE Magazine)
