This is a great introductory book on forensic psychology. The subjects are relevant to any person interested in the subject of law, psychology and criminology. It is simple to read despite the complexity of its contents. Although it is a textbook, the issues and cases included in the book are very diverse and bring to light the most controversial issues and laws within our criminal justice system.
