Great book with wonderful ideas to improve any presentation. Outside the box thinker! This should be in the library of any trainer.

...for police instructors. Most instructors in law enforcement are awful. Neil is doing something about it. I share his passion: training and education are the foundation of a good officer and agency. Most of the book was a confirmation of lessons I have already learned by being in the classroom myself. I skimmed a good portion of the book, but that's OK. I think the author intended it to be a reference manual more than a "how to." I was particularly challenged by his encouragement to share my material. When another cop asks me, "Hey, can I get your slides on ___" what I hear is "I'm too lazy to do it myself, so can I use your work, and, also since I have your stuff I won't prepare and will end up massacring your slides and lesson plan and then half-ass your best ideas for student interaction..." I know what Neil is saying about benefitting the profession, but man, I'm not there yet.

Richard Neil has written a easy-to-use guide for step-by-step police instruction. His down-to-earth style, along with the use of a little humor to smooth the way, guides the reader to a student-focused approach in the classroom. Never forgetting the importance of the audience's perspective as the most important aspect of training is the key to using this work effectively. A must-have for all police instructor libraries.

With areas such as "The Type A's" and "The Humor Safety Valve," the author reminds us that the best police training is conducted by experienced police officers with can set aside their egos and offer their best insights into the brave and dangerous world of policing.

The book has topics & ideas clearly defined. A wonderful "How To" aide for anyone that has probably one of the most difficult "Student Audiences" to teach to. Great resource for both the Newly-Certified or "Seasoned" Law Enforcement Instructor.

I have been wanting to find a book on this and this has exceeded my expectations on the quality of the writing. Easy to read without boring me to death like some other books on the market.

Want to be a better trainer? Presenter? Instructor? Then this book is for you.

Don't let the title fool you, if you're a police or CJ trainer, this is perhaps THE book for you. However it's not just for police and CJ trainers. Anyone who teaches, presents, trains or otherwise educates people of any ages will benefit from this book.

The examples and techniques are tried and true among some of the toughest students anywhere, cops. They work with them, they'll work with your group. Get it. Read it. Use it. You will not be sorry.

Richard's passion for training cops shines on every page. I have been working with out up and coming officers to develop their training ability, but lacked the focus to develop a comprehensive training program to help them improve. I used the lessons in the book and my own experience to develop a training program for new police instructors that meets one day per week over several weeks. Everyone I have shared the book with enjoys it and finds something to add to their tool box.
