Review: Games Criminals Play: How You Can Profit by Knowing Them

User Review  - Jeff Ford - Goodreads

Ok book that was written primarily for prison guards. The author description of how criminals build up confidences is worth reading. Especially the about how inmates get female guards to do what they want. The same approach is used by less than honorable men to take advantage of women. Read full review

User Review  - Kellidaisy - Goodreads

I read this book during my training period before I started my internship working with the state hospitals in California. It was an eye opener for me at the time and I learned ways in which you can be manipulated. I'm glad it was on my reading list. Read full review
