What people are saying - Write a review
I have gone through some important excerpts of this book. I take the honor to complement Dr M Tsokos in having gone through various research papers amalgamated with his lifetime experience and other clinical studies.This book definitely merits attention of developing countries and those countries who are boisterous about their technical advancements ,but are found lacking (R & D) in the field of forensic advancements in many areas.In such countries ,sitautions, such as paradoxical undressing/hide and die syndrome/terminal burrowing are mostly misunderstood as assault attack by someone , resulting in sending innocents behind bars who languish for years and years. Since cases of Hypothermia are reported even in tropical regions of the world,this book must find its way to Military Establishments,Police Academies ,Bureaucracy Training Institutions, Forensic Departments & Allied Training Institutions,Government & Private Detective Agencies, Medical Colleges and hospitals of such countries.
