Reviews

`constitutes an original but useful contribution in the vast domain of the legal medicine ... Doctor Ferner's book is an essential guide ... Due to the importance of the subjects, the clarity of the text illustrated by numerous examples from the literature and the author's experience, the book will without doubt meet the expectations of a wide range of readers ... An extensive bibliography and an index are included, which make this book a very helpful guide
in the field of pharmacology applied to forensic medicine.'
Professor P. Mangin, International Journal of International Medicine
`an original but useful contribution in the vast domain of the legal medicine ... Doctor Ferner's book is an essential guide through the data of this new common branch of law and pharmacology ... the book will without doubt meet the expectations of a wide range of readers more or less involved in this complex matter ... An extensive bibliography and an index are included, which make this book a very helpful guide in the field of pharmacology applied to
forensic medicine.'
P. Mangin, International Journal of Legal Medicine, Vol. 108, No. 5/96
`This book will be of great assistance to both legal and medical professionals participating in litigation involving drugs or related substances. This book serves as an engaging primer on a subject that mutually concerns the professions of law and medicine. Throughout the text, discussions are amply illustrated by well over a hundred case reports.'
Clinical Toxicology, 35 (2) (1997)
`a text, which although dealing with serious matters, is not without humour ... By way of illustration, or seasoning, a large number of case histories have been included, which indeed make fascinating reading. I agree with the author's predictions as to the classes of the professionals that will benefit from buying and studying this book i.e., lawyers, doctors, policeman, etc.'
P.F. D'Arcy, Adverse Drug React. Toxicol. Rev. 1997, 16(2)
