Publisher's Summary

In a televised social experiment before millions of viewers, police sergeant Derrick Levasseur demonstrated that techniques used by undercover detectives could help people achieve their goals in everyday social situations. The result: he walked away with more than half a million dollars.
In The Undercover Edge, Derrick shares his personal mind-set surrounding human behavior and motivation. Even more than that, he provides easy yet groundbreaking tools acquired while overcoming personal adversity and working more than a decade in law enforcement, showing listeners:

The power of observation and creating a profile
The effect of using silence to extract and evaluate information
The benefits of interpreting body language and developing your sixth sense
The importance of self-awareness and adapting to your environment
The value of developing a personal ops plan with a defined mission

Derrick's approach will help you create a solid foundation at home, build confidence in the workplace, and become a stronger, more capable leader.

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

Great book

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.
