"I am a great admirer of Ralph Slovenko's works, including this last one (see my review in the February 2004 issue of The American Jounral of Psychiatry, at p. 383). while I could raise a question about the elimination of one or two chapters such as those on Frye to Daubert and the right to treatment and to refuse it, I am sure that defensible reasons can be put forth for doing do and I'm equally certain that in the overall I would approve of the revised version about as much as the original." - S. Jan Brakel, Isaac Ray Forensic Group
"A very worthwhile project with good proposed changes. I only wonder if there is perhaps enough known to warrant a chapter on mass murderers and the mentally disabled." - A. L. Halpern, Mamaroneck, New York, USA
On the first edition:
"...provides a very thorough overview. The reference notes at the end of each chapter provide insight into the legal, professional and personal points that are made, frequently making the book read more like an interesting novel." - American Journal of Forensic Psychiatry
"Ralph Slovenko has written a dynamic textbook that will not collect dust on your bookshelf. If you are a practicing forensic psychiatrist, read it and reference it. If you are a forensic resident, add it to your reading list. If you are a general psychiatrist or general psychiatry resident, the malpractice chapters speak to the heart of your everyday work." - Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law
"At least once in a career, every forensic psychiatrist should read a forensic psychiatry textbook from cover to cover. If you have not done so recently, I have just the two-volume textbook for you. Ralph Slovenko's Psychiatry in Law/Law in Psychiatry tells the intriguing, informative, comprehensive story of forensic psychiatry." - Deboraj Giorgi-Guarnieri, Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law
"A book that anyone serious about law and psychiatry should have...it should be read cover to cover." - American Journal of Psychiatry
