A Review of Interviewing, An Introduction to Interrogation
In his introductory remarks, the author states that he would like to conduct training seminars on his theories of interviewing as a form of interrogation, and being unable to do so he has put his theories into this book to allow others to teach his theories. I do wish that he had included some form of teaching guide as the major portion of the text is not decipherable as any form of instructional material. Without aid, it would be of little use to the inexperienced student because of the unnecessarily complex manner in which ideas are presented. The experienced interviewer might gain some knowledge from the text but the majority of it would be of little use.
