From the reviews:

"Forensic Neuropathology and Associated Neurology covers virtually all aspects of neurologic disease and possible forensic applications to this branch of medicine, particularly the mechanisms, aging, and dating of various processes. ... This textbook can occupy a useful place in one's library. It will be helpful to forensic pathologists, neuropathologists, and many others ... ." (Jan E. Leestma, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2006)

"This text is one of two recent publications on forensic neuropathology ... . Photographs accompanying the text are clear and appropriate, with useful legends. The text is well referenced throughout, with a strong basis in the Germanic literature ... . This ensures the reference list and bibliography as a must for the practising forensic pathologists and neuorpathologists. Overall, this book makes an excellent reference text ... . At GBP230 it is worth considering for the reference shelves of forensic pathologists and neuropathologists ... ." (Dr. S. Kolar, ACP News, Autumn, 2006)

"Oehmichen, Auer and Koenig cover the areas in this specialty where the gaps in the knowledge of both experts border on each other. The book is, therefore, a gap-filler in the best sense of the word ... . The illustrations are abundant and of high quality. ... The authors have succeeded in producing an urgently needed and long-since-overdue presentation of a specialty in forensic pathology and neuropathology that confronts the forensic pathologist on a daily basis." (A. Du Chesne, International Journal of Legal Medicine, Vol. 121, 2007)

"This textbook of forensic neuropathology and associated neurology was written by three authorities in the field. It doubles as a concise neuropathology textbook and represents far more than a practical guide ... . It is addressed toward clinical neuroscientists (neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropediatricians), pathologists and forensic and clinical neuropathologists. I would also think that experimental neuroscientists could be inspired by it. This book holds excellent detailed descriptions and may be considered the `Greenfield' of forensic neuropathology. I highly recommend it." (Professor Manuel B. Graeber, Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, Vol. 66 (6), 2007)
