I am currently taking a college course using this book. The information is great but the editing is horrible! While there are always editing errors in books, this one is full of them. In a two page span I stopped counting after five obvious mistakes. Some of the errors were duplicate words or forgetting a letter, for example saying "he" instead of "she" and similar mistakes. It looks like all the editors did was run a spell check before printing the book. Not very professional. When reading this for college coursework, having to stop and reread something due to an editors mistake just makes learning the material more difficult. If you can weed through the editing errors the book has tons of valuable information; but if not for needing it for the class, I would recommend NOT buying this book.

I had the great privilege of working as an instructor at the San Antonio Police Academy when Drs. McMains and Mullins published this book. Dr. McMains supervised my training in basic and advanced hostage negotiation, which training I used both in the Texas prison system as well as in the police training classes I have conducted all over Texas.
Both Dr. McMains and Dr. Wayman Mullins write from theory that has been successfully proven without lethal incident "on the street" with veteran police officers.
This book proved an inspiration to me to restart my own writing career, and two original books later along with editing 4 authors' works have provided me with a great deal of joy. Thank you to both these authors.
