From the Publisher
The writing style and organizational methodology used in The Art of Investigative Interviewing, A human approach to testimonial evidence is nontraditional and captures the reader's interest. The approach used by Mr. Yeschke is to use knowledge bases and disciplines not normally associated with this subject matter. Of particular interest is the psychological or 'human need' to construct. This is the single most important element of an interviewing text, as the urge to reveal information, or not to, is fundamentally based upon an interviewer's ability to correctly interpret human behaviour. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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. [...]
