Myers. Excerpt: Dr. Cyril Harrison Wecht (born March 20, 1931 in the Pittsburgh suburb of Dunkard Township, Pennsylvania) is a nationally renowned, controversial American forensic pathologist. He has served as a consultant in numerous high-profile cases, but is perhaps best known for his outspoken criticism of the Warren Commission's findings concerning the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He has served as the president of both the American Academy of Forensic Science and the American College of Legal Medicine, and currently heads the board of trustees of the American Board of Legal Medicine. He served as the county commissioner, coroner and, later Medical Examiner of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Wecht is a resident of the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Wecht was born to Jewish immigrant parents in the tiny mining village of Bobtown, Greene County, Pennsylvania. His father, Nathan Wecht, was a Lithuanian born storekeeper and his Ukrainian born mother Fannie Rubenstein was a homemaker and helped out in the store. When Cyril was young, Nathan moved the family to the Hill District neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and opened a neighborhood grocery store. As a teenager he hoped to become a professional musician, and he was concertmaster of the University of Pittsburgh.

Hmmm. I agree, Mike--it might be worthwhile, but it's hard to tell considering the "sources" of information, e.g., wiki-anything. I hadn't checked it out any further than noticing it was new and available at Amazon! I didn't intend to "endorse" it--if that's how it appeared. I only meant to report its existence.

I didn't think for a second you were endorsing it Greg. I think I know you well enough to say if you were endorsing something, we all would know it.

Amazon puts out books like the one you mentioned. They have a tan exterior with black inked words on all their covers. I really don't think much of value is to be found in them but you never know. One had celebs born in Nicaragua. Of course, Bianca Jagger was named, but it's like a formula thing. I'm an amazon associate and I never saw or read one of these books. It just seems to be a means to try to make money (like everything else).
