    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubI heard about this book when Jeremy Vine interviewed Richard Shepherd on his Radio 2 programme and was blown away by the discussion, so I immediately ordered a copy what a good decision that was Knowing very little about forensic pathology apart from what I d picked up on BBC TV s Silent Witness this is so well written that it all made perfect sense.When considered from a biographical perspective, about someone I d never heard of before, it was a fascinating and very touching read.And it s a genuine page turner I have no idea how he managed to write this, let alone make it so fascinating, but whether you like adventure, biography, crime, pathos, anecdote, or just good writing, I highly recommend it.

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubSo I had this book recommended to me by another medical colleague who raved about the honesty and openness of the author and this juxtaposition with his scientific insight and knowledge I have to say that I found his writing smug and somewhat arrogant in that he seemed always to have thought about critical difficulties ahead of them happening such as I remember thinking to myself at the time of Rachel Nickell s death that i

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubThis is the endearingly honest biography of a man who has spent his life cutting up dead people to find out how they died Difficult to read in parts, Doctor Shepherd s professionalism and his evident passion for his job make this book fascinating rather than macabre.He talks about his famous cases Diana, Hungerford, 9 11, ISIS attacks, Shipman but also about the minutiae of routine deaths His own struggle to handle the impact of seeing so many terrible things which eventually lead to PTSD is sensitively discussed.I was educated, entertained and fascinated I would recommend this highly to everyone.

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubWhat a great read his was a perfect blend of the two types of books I regularly read I am an avid reader of grisly crime reads such as Martina Cole or Jessie Keane but I also enjoy a good autobiography as I enjoy the aspect of reality that they bring, especially read by the author themselves It must have taken a lot to bare all and talk about his PTSD and the years when his credibility was in jeopardy Well done to Dr Shepherd for being able to put all that in writing and out there in the public.Dr Shepherd managed to hook me in from the very beginning and I ended up finishing it in just a few days as I was desperate to hear I also enjoyed his recognition that not all re

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubI spent time learning from Dr Shepherd during UK DVI training without knowing much of the background he pulls out in this book Clearly his approach to talking to people during post mortem procedures had become finely tuned as he was able to impart information to a non medically qualified person in away that helped to assuage any fears of death but also provide the key answers to loved ones This book draws out the professionalism but also very personal impact on the lives involved in this work Also,the fine line between being an expert and possibly incompetent in court hearings and subsequent inquiries Thank you for writing your story in an honest and enthralling manner, but would have not expected anything different from a serious professional.

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubPedestrian style, padded with a boring marriage Maybe four or five interesting cases, covered in a couple of pages each and off we go back to a humourless home.Plenty of judgemental observations on other professionals, but not acceptable when directed at the author.I have worked in mortuaries and can identify with some aspects of the narrative, but there is so much that can be described in depth I learnt nothing of forensic pathology from this book.He learns to fly, but we discover nothing much about it He argues with his wife or rather, he doesn t and then goes to work, which he manages to make boring.

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubThe book is a fantastic read unfortunately as can be seen in the photos several pages are unprinted or have sections cut out of them For this reason I cannot award 5 stars.

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubThe book did not develop as I had thought it would I was expecting a series of potted summaries of this forensic pathologist leading mots famous cases In fact it laid bare his personal life and the strains that the job placed on it and that of his family.The book is, for the most part well written The first few chapters would have benefitted from better editing as his text is clumsy in places.More importantly his description of the cases is fascinating and is not overly explicit in detail.A fine book, unlike any other I have read

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubI haven t read a Non Fiction medical science book written by a professional before so I didn t know what to expect But this blew my mind in many ways I am heavily maybe a little to much into anything that is a crime, forensic, psychology and anatomy and what hides behind it all.Although this was not completely based on just the facts of his career as a forensic pathologist, I still personally enjoyed looking into his personal and family life and how it affected him And how Later on in his life, it began to affect his mental heal

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubRecently I have read a number of what in effect are medical memoirs All have had their points of interest, but this one stands out from the others Richard Shepherd comes across as professionally dedicated, as a man of real integrity and thoroughly honest There is none of the veneer of egocentricity which to a greater or lesser degree weakens all the other books.It is an account of his life as a pathologist He presents the processes he undertakes with clarity and meaning Even engaging, and for him often stressful, are his numerous court apperances Some feature high profile trials such as the Shipman case, whereas others are less celebrated notorious but required the courage to face hostile examination by either crown or defending barristers We see how often he has to agonise faced with the most complex

    Unnatural Causes PDF/EPUB ✓ Broché unnatural ebok, causes epub, Unnatural CausesUnnatural Causes EpubHis hero Keith Simpson wrote an excellent book about his work, analysing the cases he worked on and how the scientific evidence helped to establish the guilt or innocence of the perpetrator This book is rather a pale imitation If you want to know what makes the author tick, how he came to be a forensic pathologist, how it put a strain on his marriage and how he ended up in a happier marriage, this is the book for you None of that is in the least interesting to me, I m afraid The accounts of cases in which he was involved are sometimes interesting but usually banal and ro
