The directors of the National Forensic Academy in Nashville explain how real-life crime scene investigation is done. Great premise and lots of interesting facts, but the book suffers seriously from an inconsistent and overly colloquial writing style. I question whether they employed the services of an editor. Your ability to enjoy this book depends on how many awkward sentences you can stomach...and whether you can handle truly graphic descriptions of decomposing human bodies. ( )

This book takes an inside look at the National Forensic Academy and the various elements of forensic science taught there (including but not limited to: fingerprinting, forensic photography, entomology, arson investigation, blood spatter, trace evidence, etc.). The authors at times come across as egocentric but nevertheless, it is an interesting, although brief, tour of the details involved in crime scene investigation. Not the best book for hard research, but a worthwhile read for anyone seeking an overview of the discipline. ( )

How can a book about dead bodies be so fun? Highly recommended ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425207528, Hardcover)

In Bodies We've Buried, the very first book to reveal the inside workings of the National Forensic Academy, two NFA administrators offer readers and CSI fans exclusive access to a world normally off-limits to all but law enforcement officials, doctors, and scientists: inside the only hands-on crime-scene investigation school of its kind, where students are trained in burial recovery with actual human remains. This is the shocking, uncensored, and sometimes darkly humorous reality of forensic investigation. It features firsthand stories of the students themselves and shows how the remarkable science of CSI has solved some of the most famous cases in recent history.

From the world-wide authority on crime scene investigation, Bodies We've Buried is the never-before-told story of CSI investigation as it really is.
