“The book explores the right subjects. It provides the right warnings, focal points, and pitfalls. It stays clearly away from technical details, but does, for instance, present tools with strengths and weaknesses. Unlike other books, it does look at the situation outside of the US. In forensics, you need to prove competence beyond doubt. For a team manager, this book is not a bad start for building that proof.”--
