–Roger Kennington, Senior Probation Officer / Project Coordinator, Sexual Behaviour Unit, National Probation Service Northumbria
"A valuable collection on the use of the polygraph with sexual offenders, combining practical suggestions, scholarly reviews and interesting stories. The editor should be commended for the care taken to position the polygraph within the larger domains of clinical evaluation, risk assessment, and lie detection. Even for readers who have no special interest in the polygraph, the research summarized in this volume has much to say about sexual offenders and sexual offending."
–R. Karl Hanson, Senior Research Scientist, Public Safety Canada
"This book critically evaluates a substantial body of evidence that polygraph-assisted interviews with sex offenders provide substantially more information than self report or file information alone. It is vital reading for those involved in the assessment, treatment or community supervision of sex offenders, and for policy makers who wish to provide these practitioners with the best tools to protect the public."
–Professor David Middleton, De Montfort University, UK, Former Head of Community Sex Offender Strategy and Programmes, National Offender Management Service
"This book should be required reading for all practitioners of post-conviction sex offender testing. This singularly comprehensive and authoritative guide will be most helpful to psychologists, polygraphists, therapists, parole and probation officers in the assessment, treatment and supervision of sex offenders. I highly recommend this book without reservations."
–James Allan Matte, President of Matte Polygraph Service, Inc., member of adjunct faculty of the Backster School of Lie Detection, American Polygraph Association, Society for Psychophysiological Research, Association for Psychological Science, American Society for Testing and Materials, and Honorary President of the British Polygraph Association
"This publication likely will become a standard reference for professionals in polygraph, sex-offender treatment, management, and supervision. It is a wonderful compilation of information for those who want a clear and concise explanation of PCSOT and a glimpse at the role polygraph may have in the future world of post-conviction oversight. I am not aware of any publication today that offers such a broad spectrum of forward thinking views, information, and futuristic thinking as does this book by Daniel Wilcox."
–Eric J. Holden, Past President, American Polygraph Association and Chair, APA PCSOT committee, 2007-2009
