Reviews - What do customers think about Investigating CSI: An Unauthorized Look Inside the Crime Labs of Las Vegas, Miami and New York (Smart Pop series)?
From one of the chapter authors Oct 21, 2006
This book contains a variety of viewpoints regarding the CSI series, some of the differences between "real life crime scene investigation" and that on television, and the CSI series' impact on our lives. The second chapter, titled "The CSI Effect" was written by one of the original CSIs (yours truly), who worked at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department when CSI creator Anthony Zuiker was riding with Crime Scene Analysts (CSI) to conduct research for his pilot and initial series episodes.
A three-part definition and detailed description is provided for the "CSI Effect". One part of the chapter, "Why Cops, Prosecutors, and Real CSIs Hate the World's Most Popular TV Show" asks and answers some very candid questions directed to law enforcement professionals.
If you love CSI, this book is definitely for you. If you don't like the shows, I dare you to read the book. I'm sure you'll come away with a different perspective.
