This was a textbook that was required for one of my college courses. I brought it to work one day; however, and my Regional Security Officer started to flip through it. After about 10 minutes he offered to purchase it from me after I was done with my course. He said the information was relevant and he wanted to read it as a refresher for his investigation purposes. As a result, I rarely read my college textbooks (I'm more of a scanner/find the information from the index kind of student) (work smarter not harder) but the information was actually really good. I've attended numerous/various investigative seminars and classes and the information in this book matched up/applied. Needless to say, I was impressed (for as much credit as you can give a textbook ;)

This topic interests me anyway since I am a criminal justice major so the book is also interesting to me. A little pricey.
