A bunch of class notes, scribbled in a manner which even trained pharmacists – accustomed to reading doctors’ illegible handwriting – would find difficult to decipher, turned into a book, in 2004. The book was initially written off by some purists. Nonetheless, I wrote it as a labour of love. I was convinced that students needed a book like that. From the unassuming beginning of its first print, the book now has reached its seventh edition – spanning more than 14 years – and I’m humbled to discover that #RoFM has become a bestseller among books on Forensic Medicine on various online platforms. I’ve revised the seventh edition with a deep sense of gratitude and responsibility. Along with some addons, I’ve written a new chapter, ‘The Forensic Imaginarium’, in sync with the latest exam pattern of giving emphasis to images. Some portions of a few chapters have been rewritten, and newer concepts have been included. The chapter ‘The Forensic Name Game’ captures the overarching theme of the book – Read Less, Study More. Well, in spite of my best efforts, I couldn’t prevent the book from gaining a few extra pounds! This book, RoFM, will help students understand and remember the important ‘must knows’ of Forensic Medicine. The focus is on assisting students grappling with information overload plus a need for rapid revision. With these ideas deliberated on, RoFM will help students grasp the essential areas of Forensic Medicine with ease. Please remember that #RoFM is NOT a textbook but an enzyme! with the singular aim of helping the content - from prescribed textbooks of Forensic Medicine – sift through a barrier normally difficult to cross, i.e., the Blood-Brain Barrier. I’ve used my vast experience as a student and intensive knowledge as a teacher to ensure that the book ends up being ‘reader friendly’. I have made my best effort to make this book complete yet concise. I request all readers to share your valuable suggestions for further improvement. In times when most books are written with ‘the subject’ in mind, I’ve written this book with ‘the student’ in mind. I’m acutely aware that ‘a good book cannot replace a good teacher’. I’ll keep tweeting and updating the FB page and interacting with you using the hashtag #RoFM, so that you don’t miss out anything new and I can continue with my favourite hobby. In full disclosure, Forensic Medicine is no longer my active profession but a delightful avocation.
