Wigmore on Alcohol is the definitive sourcebook on courtroom alcohol toxicology and an indispensable tool for medical and legal practitioners. The abridged version has been developed for the non-specialist looking for up-to-date scientific evidence related to blood alcohol. It provides an exhaustive survey of the international forensic alcohol literature of over 690 articles along with expert commentary by one of North America’s leading forensic alcohol toxicologists. The detailed discussion of the literature has been condensed in order to make the book more useful and accessible to those unfamiliar with the science.


“It will certainly be the new Alcohol Bible for decades to come, and be of great value to active practitioners and researchers.”
— Dr. Kurt M. Dubowski, George Lynn Cross Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Medicine, University of Oklahoma

“This book is a must for anyone who is working on medicolegal issues involving alcohol. It will be appreciated by lay persons interested in this topic as well as scientific and legal experts involved in alcohol-related medicolegal issues.”
— Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD, University of Kansas Medical Center

“In short, Wigmore on Alcohol is a wonderful research tool that will prove a valuable resource in both legal and scientific libraries.”
— Justice Libman, Judge, Ontario Court of Justice

“I regret that Wigmore on Alcohol was not available to me during my years of active practice in forensic science.”
— Doug Lucas, MSc, PhD (Hons), Retired Director of the Centre of Forensic Sciences, Toronto

“In summary, this work provides scientist and non-scientist, student and expert alike with a source of relevant articles to assist them in learning about, understand or deepening their knowledge of alcohol toxicology.”
— Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal

“I worked in the insurance industry for many, many years and I have attended mediations, discoveries and trials. I have also published articles and presented at seminars. Your book would have been of such a help as a reference had it been available…It certainly one that could band should be used by the Insurance Industry, the Law Society and Police Departments across the country.”
— Carolan Shannon, RN, Claims Consultant
