Publisher's Summary

To get the truth from someone, you need two sets of skills. The first is the interpersonal skills necessary to get the facts. But the second group of skills is equally if not more important: they enable you to assess whether the facts actually fit together--whether they are true--and identify the emotions that shaped them. In Nothing but the Truth, top intelligence experts from the worlds of espionage, business, and law enforcement reveal how they get the information they need and give you the key tools to get the information you need, including:


A system to vet sources
Eight conversation motivators that help you drive toward the truth
Techniques to turn a hostile source into a cooperative one
The means to control the sequence of a conversation
Getting the truth through email or on the phone

Whether your aim is to grill suspects and witnesses, help someone with an urgent need, figure out who is lying or cheating, or upgrade your ability to be honest with yourself, Nothing but the Truth will show you how to do it.

Critic Reviews

"Obtaining truthful information is at the heart and soul of the law enforcement, intelligence, counterintelligence, and counterterrorism professions and is an art form to be studied, practiced, and mastered. This unique and well-researched book is a must-read for all investigators, intelligence professionals, and/or anyone [interested in] the topic." (David Major, retired senior FBI supervisory special agent; first director of counterintelligence, intelligence and security programs of the National Security Council staff at the White House)

Far from a good listen or read.

Centered more on giving study results and stories than instruction on interviewing. Disappointed in this book.
