Journal of Forensic Sciences, July 2006, Vol.51, No.4 (Dr Christine Moore) Highly informative and accessible...an excellent overview of the various scientific fields where analysis of the hair shaft yields unique information. Chemistry & Industry, 5 June 2006 (Sudax Murdan) Very well structured and balanced, complete and really a hair encyclopedia.
