    This review is from: Make ’em Talk: Principles Of Military Interrogation (Paperback)

    As a former US Army Officer and US Air Force NCO, I have to say that this is an incredibly bad manuscript. The author touches little on any substanative military or psychological theory that might be of use to any professional member the military or law enforcement. This book is nothing more than a collection of the infantile ramblings and anecdotal, “war stories,” of an ego-inflated right-wing extremist. The content, organization and basic writing craft exhibited by the author, falls well below what is to be expected from a professional writer, not to mention a professional soldier. This book is not for the serious student or practitioner of interrogation. The book reads like the pure trash and tripe that comes out of a publication such as,”Soldier of Fortune,” Magazine. As far as Mr. McDonald is concerned, I have this to say, you are an embarassment to both the US Military and intelligence profession. I want my money back!

    This book is not about military interrogation at all, although it starts off that way. This veteran is not writing anything with any literary integrity. Instead of being about interogation, this book is mereley a blind and gross salute to the U.S military. I am ex-military myself and I love my country more than anyone but this book is more about blind praise than anything else. my advice…don’t buy this book. The type of arrogance in this book is why people hate America so much

    This review is from: Make ’em Talk: Principles Of Military Interrogation (Paperback)

    This book casts more light on Patrick McDonald’s personality disorders than it does the the subject of interrogation. In the course of my 22 year career in law enforcement and corrections, I have never seen an instance where Patrick McDonald’s loosely formed ideas would be relevant to an interrogation practitioner. Mr. McDonald comes off in this book more like a person who would more likely find himself in the position of being interrogated by a policeman rather than conducting an interrogation! From an academic point of view, Make’em Talk is not to be taken seriously. This is nothing but a venue for McDonald to validate his improverished ego and self-image by making himself out to be much more than he is. I deal with this same genera of pathological behavior in my work in counseling youth offenders.
