From the reviews of the second edition:

"In 22 chapters a total of 32 further authors from USA present their opinions on general and specialised aspects of the biomechanics of injuries. ... chapters on the biomechanics of injury to special tissues and body regions ... are a treasure trove for forensic pathologists. The maximum stress limits, which are often very difficult to find, are presented here and discussed in detail. ... This book deservedly belongs to the basic library of all forensic pathologists." (A. Du Chesne, International Journal of Legal Medicine, Vol. 119 (2), 2005)
