The upper right column of page 204 refers the reader to visit two different internet sites to learn more about the differences between polygraph and voice stress. The only problem with these two sites is, they are both products of the polygraph society and therefore tend to be bias in favor of polygraph. If a reader of this book is really interested in learning more about both polygraph and voice stress analysis they should visit http://vsaworks.com/
