    “Computer Forensics and Cyber Crime: An Introduction should he a welcomed addition to all parents’ bookshelves.”

    — Dr: Ed Whittle, Florida Metropolitan University, Tampa, F

    “Computer Forensics and Cyber Crime: An Introduction likely constitute(s) the most definitive reference material on the subject of computer-related crime, cyber crime law, and computer crime investigation including the management and custody of evidence. Although the number of books prepared on the subject of computer-related crime and investigations has increased quite a bit in quantity and quality during the last two years, to my knowledge, they are not as thorough, comprehensive, and easy-to-read as this one …this-text is far superior to any of those… This book could very well become the Bible for computer crime across the U.S. and possibly in Britain, Canada, and elsewhere too.”

    — Scott Senja, Weber State University, Ogden, UT

    “This is the most extensive and comprehensive text reviewed in our quest for appropriate material.”
