""Sadoff has crafted an admirable mix of facts and anecdotes, presented in a manner
that could help undergraduates get a taste for the realities of forensic practice, help graduate
students connect the theoretical with the practical, and even provide veteran practitioners
with helpful reminders and provocative food for thought."" (PsycCRITIQUES, 23 November 2011)
""It will serve as a useful resource and is a welcome addition to my library."" (Doody's, 11 November 2011)
""While Ethical Issues in Forensic Psychiatry appears to be targeted at the forensic psychiatrist, as emphasised in the title, I believe that it can be valuable reading for all forensic mental health professionals. . . Ethical Issues in Forensic Psychiatry makes practical ethics easy reading. . . This book is an invaluable guide to ethical practice."" (Journal of Mental Health, 1 October 2011)
