The Essentials of the Reid Technique are taught around the world to law enforcement officers, etc. Great book with helpful techniques, even though some of his techniques are now being proven wrong, such as the eyes never lie. According to Scientific America, and others, there is no way to tell if someone is lying by their eye movements.

Useful Resource Sept. 24 2005
By Curt O. McDowell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a school administrator, I find the information on interviewing and interrogation helpful in getting to the bottom of issues I previously have not been able to solve. The questioning techniques and the observation of behaviors presented in this book enable me to allow my students to tell the truth and help to solve their own issues. The resolution of these issues and the breaking down of lies and cover-up behavior is the first step to helping students make better decisions. This book is an invaluable resource in that regard.

Not just the best for cops, but for any of us... Nov. 4 2006
By J. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you cannot afford the expensive course given by Reid, or your agency is too "thrifty" to spend the money to send you, this book will give you a thorough overview. The technique is explained very well in two sections- the first part provides a synopsis of interview and interrogation essentials in some detail. Distinctions between Inerviews and Interrogations; Obtaining facts; the Interview Room; Investigator Attitude; Starting Interviews; Formulating Questions; Behavioral Analysis of Truthful and Untruthful Subjects. The second part explains the nine-step technique Reid has developed and perfected over years of use by many agencies. Written for a general reader, the writing avoids legalese and is well illustrated. Highly recommended!

Gold Standard of this Field! April 2 2007

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this for a training manual for my new hires as private investigators, it is hands down one of the best books ever written on interviewing and interrogation techniques. Even the experienced people were raving about the information in it. Can't ask for better than that!

Good Review May 31 2008
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"The Essentials of the Reid Technique," is just that...the essentials. This book gives a down and dirty review of the techniques used to interview and interrogate crime suspects. It's easy to read and understand and is a good refresher for those who have taken the Reid course.

A must read for Detective work Jan. 27 2010
By Sean J. Kessel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Even though this is a watered down version of the Reid Technique program it is still well worth the money. The subjects that are covered are very well done considering the length of the chapters. If you are entertaining the idea of paying to go to the full blown class but your not quite sure than buy this book to build up your appetite.
