Reviews

'I really enjoyed reading this book. It is well put together, practical, and full of useful advice ... [It] will be a welcome addition to the library of all those who practice forensic psychiatry and of teachers and students of forensic psychiatry for whom this should be a seminal text. Many of the remaining practising clinical psychiatrists, including myself, could learn a lot from this volume, if only about the simplicity and brevity of any report writing.' Richard Balon, Annals of Clinical Psychiatry
'This textbook is exceptional because it presents very practical components of the work of forensic psychiatry within clear understandings of forensic thinking, logic, ethics, and communication. In addition, I am certain that this generation of forensic psychiatrists will likewise gain from its depth, detail, and quality teachings on the entire process of generating a forensic report. It is rich; it is derived from experience meshed with a sense of ethics and attention to quality. It should be a required reading not only for forensic trainees but also for those in forensic practice; as we continuously learn and improve - this book can help us to do so!' Avram H. Mack, The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
'It is hard to find fault with the book. The editors have achieved their goal of providing an informative and comprehensive guide to writing forensic reports. [This volume] is recommended to forensic practitioners who want a single text to serve as a reference and a guide to their report writing.' The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law
"This book is unique in the field of forensic psychiatry ... It is a well-done work that should have a place of prominence in most forensic psychiatrists' offices." Doody's Review Services
"In contrast to many other resources on report writing, this book provides historical and background information, as well as clear practical guidance on specific types of forensic mental health reports. Accordingly, it is hard to find fault with the book. The editors have achieved their goal of providing an informative and comprehensive guide to writing forensic reports. The book is recommended to forensic practitioners who want a single text to serve as a reference and a guide to their report writing." The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law
