    I liked the way the book speaks directly to the students in a clear and professional way. While you dont minimize the work and skills that students need to be successful in a career in forensics, you do show that it is within their reach, if they are willing to rise to the occasion. The anecdotal stories are clear, brief, and to the point. Debbie Brewer, Teacher Lumen Christi High School, Anchorage, Alaska
