The leading interview and interrogation approach used throughout the world today, the Reid Techniquer was initially described in the first edition of Criminal Interrogation and Confessions by Fred E. Inbau. Considered the "Bible" for interviewing and interrogation techniques, the book is currently in its fourth edition and hundreds of thousands of investigators have received training in the Reid Technique. Now for the first time, an abridged and more affordable version of this best-selling book is available from the experts at John E. Reid and Associates, Inc. It makes an ideal supplement in Criminal Investigation courses. Essentials of the Reid Technique teaches readers how to spot and interpret verbal and nonverbal behaviors of deceptive (or truthful) people and how to move toward solid confessions from guilty persons. The book includes real-life scenarios and examples to help readers understand the effective and proper way that a suspect should be interrogated and the safeguards that should be in place to ensure the integrity of the confession.
