Review   Science & Justice 1998 - January 1, 1998

My views on this book are biased; I saw a copy and thought it was good enough to buy with my own hard earned cash before being asked to review it. If there is one book which can be recommended to the neophyte practitioner, whether forensic medical examiner, forensic scientist or advocate, whose practice includes drink driving cases then this must be it. The scientific chapters are of such high quality that it is invidious to select anyone for special mention. All are clearly written, relevant and authoritative. In summary, this book is invaluable. If you have a copy you can use it as a touchstone; do you trust your colleague enough to lend him your personal copy?

Review   Canadian Society of Forensic Science - March 1, 1998

This book provides useful information for almost all alcohol related scenarios likely to be encountered in court. Members of the legal community will find the sections on impairment, sample collection, continuity, instrument limitations and witness examination particularly relevant, while toxicologists will appreciate the reference library . . . .

Review   Scientific Sleuthing - January 1, 1997

All in all, this text is an exemplary compendium and analysis of alcohol and its place in the medicolegal system. There are other texts . . . but none that comes to grips with so much on the subject in so few pages and with such uniquely literate and informed analysis. This is a book for those active in the field . . . because it will enhance their management and understanding of the topics it embraces.

Review   Journal of Analytical Toxicology - July 1, 1993

[It] has proven valuable to forensic scientists . . . as well as to attorneys, physicians, and those involved in law enforcement.

Review   Journal of Forensic Sciences - May 1, 1994

I have used this book for references and training since it first appeared and I would encourage those who deal with any aspect of forensic alcohol to add the book to their library without delay.

Review   Book News - February 1, 2004
This resource for toxicologists and attorneys presents information on alcohol and its involvement in the forensic sciences and in litigation. A sampling of topics includes the chemistry of alcoholic beverages, the disposition of ethanol in the body, methods for breath and fluid analysis, and the reporting of laboratory results. Some of the legal issues addressed include the prosecution of driving-under- the-influence cases, the responsibilities of an expert witness, and the conduct of alcohol testing in the workplace. The fourth edition contains a new chapter describing the effects of alcohol on drivers.

"The only alcohol book you will ever need!"

Review By: Jaffe Dan,   http://blog.duiattorney.com - September 29, 2008

A lawyer without books is like a bird without wings. While both exist, they are rare and regarded with suspicion. For any lawyer serious about defending DUI cases, there are certain books that simply must on the shelf. Here are the top books:
2. Medical-Legal Aspects Of Alcohol, edited by James C. Garriott covers all of the essential science in an easy to understand format. The book is small enough that travels will to court, and is considered authoritative by many judges and expert witnesses. It is published by Lawyers & Judges Publishing Company.
While there are many other good books out there on the subject, these four books should form the core of your DUI library if you are serious about defending drunk driving cases.

Review   ToxTalk, Vol. 32, Issue 4, December 2008 - December 1, 2008

Alcohol related investigation and litigation typically pertains to arrests of drinking drivers, but also includes industrial accidents, public transport accidents, and violent crimes. The medicolegal aspects of alcohol are complex topics because so many different components are present in alcohol-related criminal and civil cases. This 5th Edition provides updated science with specialized expertise and expanded new sections including prosecution and defense of DUI cases.
