This is one of the most poorly written books I have ever encountered. The mistakes in this book are too numerous to list in this small space but they include:
Multiple instances of improper use of possessive (`s)
Multiple instances of awkward and/or incomplete sentence.
Multiple examples that this book was not proofread or inadequately proofread.
Multiple examples of misplaced commas.
Multiple examples of improper use of punctuation marks.
The author does not seem to know when to put information related to the sentence in parenthesis and when to start a new sentence.
The author by his own admission is not an English teacher. He then goes on to write an incomplete chapter about grammar. Included in the chapter is a section on adjectives but no mention of adverbs; the author addresses only 4 parts of speech when there are at least 8. It would seem that grammar would be an essential part of any report writing book. (Well, either have a chapter about grammar or don't).
Any book on report writing is better than this one (Holtz, Wallace/Roberson, Frazee). This book contains a lengthy chapter on Use of Force reporting. The absolute indispensible work on Use of Force reporting was authored by George T. Williams.
As an author of two law enforcement books and over fifty professional articles I know how hard it is to put your work out there to be scrutinized by a critical profession. But to author a book about report writing and have this many grammatical mistakes is indefensible.Read more ›
