Reviews of Expert Psychiatric Evidence

  • BMA Medical Book Awards 2012 – “Highly commended”

  • 'An admirable manual for psychiatrists, indeed for all medical practitioners who choose, or (as often happens) are obliged to do forensic work and for the lawyers who enlist them … in short I consider this a masterwork.” James Badenoch QC, 1 Crown Office Row

  • 'It is hard to imagine that it will not also be of use to lawyers and the judiciary." Richard Latham in The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology

  • 'Heisenberg, the mathematical physicist, tells us, “An expert is someone who knows some of the worst mistakes that can be made in his subject and who manages to avoid them”. This book will help psychiatrists, perhaps also lawyers, avoid major mistakes.” Jane Garner in The Advocate

  • "Several books exist, for example, that seek to explain psychiatry and its ways to lawyers. Rix’s book does not seek to do that, but it can be very helpful to any lawyer who is involved in instructing or examining a psychiatric expert witness." Michael Isaac in the Academy of Experts The Expert and Dispute Resolver
