"Alan Goldstein has his finger on the pulse of forensic
psychology. He and his A-list contributors showcase a striking
array of classic conundrums and budding courtroom controversies.
Remarkably, their analysis is as deep as their coverage is broad.
There are two or three works that simply have to be on the shelf of
every forensic psychologist. This book is one of them."
