5.0 out of 5 stars.  EXCELLENT!! I read it so many years ago ..., October 08, 2014
By Cami J. (FL)
EXCELLENT!! I read it so many years ago that I don't recall anything specific other than that I loved loved this book, a must for anyone fascinated with forensic pathology. I was trying to get into med school at the time and wanted to be an ME and this book was great.

Postmortem is a book to read if you like crime scenes. I enjoy first 48 hours and CIS and many others. I like to understand what doctors are speaking of and the terms. This book Postmortem will give you all the answer you need.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  much more simplistic than I had anticipated, December 30, 2012
By doc peterson (Portland, Oregon USA)
Interested in forensic anthropology, I imagined _Postmortem_ would be a detailing of forensic pathology, given the credential of the authors (one has a Master's in Public Health and PhD, the other an MD and JD.) Instead, to my dismay, I found the book a very general and simplified explanation of the chain of custody of death investigators and what their respective roles and jobs are.

Given the vocabulary, organization and material, I imagine the book is primarily geared towards middle-schoolers (ages 10 - 14). The material isn't bad or inaccurate, or even poorly written - for its intended audience, it is appropriate (perhaps even a bit graphic - there are images of GSW - gun shot wounds, electrical burns and the foaming associated with drowning), but it is not nearly as sophisticated as I hoped it would be. Caveat emptor.

2.0 out of 5 stars.  Blechh..., March 29, 2012
By beccalovesdogs
I admit.....I purchased this book out of morbid curiosity as to what takes place after we die. The whole process of autopsies for unattended deaths, etc.. This "educational book" seems as if it were written for elementary school kids. ......ZZZZZ...ZZZZ..ZZ, WHAT A SNOOZER! It's published in big print with uninteresting photos, and the content is more along the lines of something you might read in a pamphlet. Cautiously informative with great care taken to NOT show anything "gruesome" or "offensive". Well, it's A BOOK ABOUT AUTOPSIES. Autopsies are indeed gruesome and offensive, it's dead people. Dead people who are cut open and systematically eviscerated for scientific purposes. So...if you are like me and was wanting something to quell your curiosity regarding what happens in autopsies, you will not get your answers from this book. At all.
