"An excellent book on the current state of the knowledge of psychological science applied to the legal system. This book had me hooked from the moment I read the foreword ... and kept me interested through the end of the last commentary ... .There were numerous highlights ... .The contents of this book are not just informative but timely. In summary, this book is excellent and is highly recommended for the general public, students, and legal and psychological practitioners and researchers. Borgida and Fiske make it very apparent that scientific psychologists have an understanding of human thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that can aid legal decision makers." (PsycCritiques, December 2008) "Eugene Borgida and Susan Fiske assembled a distinguished group of psychological scientists to articulate the state of scientific findings on issues of relevance to modern litigation ... .I highly recommend this book to a wide variety of audiences ... .This is a timely and important volume that should be widely read. It will not be a waste of time." (Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy, 2008)
