Read for a forensic course and personal research. Overall, a good book for any researcher and/or enthusiast.
I found this book's contents helpful and inspiring - number rating relates to the book's contribution to my needs and the university course.
Explanations, including varying scholarly views and the plethora of material related in this book, are fabulous.
