Principles of Kinesic Interview & Interrogation – A Reader’s Review

“The ability to recognize deception is extremely important in my field, and there are many manuals of instructions on the subject. Mr. Walters’, however, gives the reader/researcher the keys to EXTRACTING the verbal and non-verbal reactions the body has when stressed. It also covers what happens to the body and speech when a person is ready to confess. “Since my introduction to Mr. Walters’ book, my confession rate has sky rocketed! I obtain solid witness statements and when conducting internal investigations, officers come right out and ‘fess up’ rather than be interrogated. All my awards over the last three years including the 1998 Officer of the Year for my agency, I owe to this book.”

Jim Miles, Police Investigator, Columbia, South Carolina on
