By Mark S. Haynes on June 25 2000
Format: Paperback
I have been a police officer for 5 years, and have received alot of training in the police field. In 5 years I have found that there is very minimal training in obtaining confessions from suspects. Obtaining voluntary confessions from suspects is a very important task in today's modern world. I found this book to be very informative and it explains to the reader the many parts to an interview before leading into an interogation. This book also also explains that showing empathy works better at obtaining confessions than the old methods of coersion. I enjoyed the book and am excited to get to apply its teachings in my interviews. I believe that the methods taught in this book are worth while and will work if you are patient and use them properly

Format: Paperback
Ninety-five percent mundane recycled touchy feely fluff and 5% useful information. Not worth the price even for those who would appreciate the fluff.

Excellent Source For Real, Practical, and Effective Info... Dec 25 2004
By Michael Beltz, FCI - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a licensed private investigator and an avid reader of investigative texts, I can personally attest that this text successfully meets the true test of value for investigative texts - it imparts the reader with ability to effectively employ its teachings. Mr. Yeschke has done an excellent job of properly articulating the techniques/procedures necessary to perform effective interviews.

The text is a perfect combination of real, practical, and effective techniques/procedures and actual case examples. The text goes into great detail in building the basic foundation of effective interviewing skills, such as understanding human psychology (in deception), proper interview preparation, successfully employing the self-fulfilling prophecy, tactical concepts, evidence collection, public vs. private sector investigations, the interview process, controlling the interview environment, proper phrasing of questions (closed vs. open questions), and evaluating the evidence obtained from the interview. The text then demonstrates practical application of these skills using actual case examples. I highly recommend this text to anyone looking to learn effective investigative interviewing skills.

As always, check with your local library or bookstore to see if you can read/review this or any title before deciding to make a purchase. This method has effectively allowed me to make the most of my investigative library budget.

I hope you found this review helpful. [...]

Great stuff !! May 13 2004
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are interested in conducting serious and professional investigative interviews this is one of the first books you should pick up. It talks about numerous interviewing techniques on how to extract vital information from the person your interviewing without asking "leading questions". I got over 5 pages of notes out of the first few chapters alone.

Not Recommended Nov. 5 2011
By E. Ferraro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am sure the author is a fine investigator and interviewer, however this book does not reveal it. The book is well written and edited but the content is lacking. It is disorganized, over wrought and chock full of disassociated thoughts, approaches and ideas. As a professional investigator in the private sector for 30 years and the author of a number of books addressing this topic, this is one of the least useful I have read. Interested in hearing more of my thoughts please contact me: eferraro@businesscontrols.com.
