"Practicing engineers and geologists will find the case histories very helpful to their work. The book may also serve as a reference book for advanced courses in geotechnical engineering."
JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY
"Professional engineering geologists and civil engineers should read Forensic Engineering...It is an excellent account of the challenges and opportunities of serving as an expert witness in litigation involving environmental-type failures and hazards....A more important audience for [the] book, however, is our students-who will be entering professional practice....I hope that [the authors' voices] will continue to be heard at colleges and universities...[This] book must be in every engineering geologist's and geotechnical engineer's library or briefcase-actually, in every one's head."
