I originally saw this book mentioned in my ILEETA newsletter. I logged on Amazon to buy it. I guess I should have known when I noticed the author wrote a glowing review of his own book.

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.

I ordered this book on Nov 2010. I thought its going to be a "the best police report writing book", but I was wrong. I expected the book focus just on the advance report writing techniques but it turn-out to be a very basic report writing guidelines which i already learned in the police academy.

The book was easy to read and understand. What I liked best were the samples of crimes committed, synopsis, and police reports of how they are written.

This book was easy to read and easy to digest. My report writing was not going so well and I liked this book for it's no nonsense, no filler content. It fits my job well and I was able to relate my writing difficulties to the stories in this book and I felt like there was very easy to understand instructions for pretty much any level. The other reviews seemed more personal than professional and I am glad I did the preview and purchase. I already gave this book to another officer who was having a hard time and this book was well received by him too. Great Job!!!!
