Reviews

"O'Donohue and Levensky have put together a readable and truly comprehensive work that covers forensic topics (legal and ethical) intersecting with psychology. The editors divide the discussion into logical sections that include basic issues, assessment issues, mental disorders, and special topics. Chapters treat such key issues as forensic reports, eyewitness testimony, juries, and polygraphs. Included among the many other important topics are nonverbal detection of deception, and elder and child abuse. The list of contributors is impressive, and all information is current. This book will be a vital tool for forensic scientists and forensic psychologists as well as an invaluable resource for anyone who must write reports or give courtroom testimony. Summing Up: Essential. All collections supporting the study of forensics at the upper-division undergraduate level and above." -CHOICE
