A deep dive into understanding people
What did you like best about this story?
he Undercover Edge was a pleasant surprise in many ways. I watched Derrick dominate Big Brother, and seemingly effortlessly control and navigate the house towards his end goal of winning. What I didn't know while watching was how deeply Derrick was using his background as an undercover policeman and deep understanding of people and their wiring as tools to aid in his domination of the house.
The Undercover Edge dives deeply into Derrick's background, and how he's used his undercover edge to better understand people. The book gives tips and advice for a deeper perspective into what is going on around you, noticing people and their expressions in a deeper fashion to better understand communication, and to take Derrick's background and training and use it in your everyday life, business, relationships, etc.
I didn't know if the book would be a reflection on Derrick's Big Brother win and early career. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the book was much more than that. It was a deep dive into psychology and better understanding people. I'd highly recommend this book for anyone interested in better interacting with people around them, including from a business and personal perspective.
Derrick was amazing in the Big Brother house, and he's an equally amazing author! Great read.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! Read it twice back-to-back

I know of Derrick from Big Brother and was excited for this book. This was unlike most books by reality stars that are superficial and gossipy. It gave some great advice that can be used in any profession. I’m pleasantly surprised. Only thing is I wish Derrick would have read it himself.
