The Art of Questioning will teach you to ask questions that are effectively worded, structured, designed and timed.

Additionally, you will learn how to determine a subject’s communication patterns and use that knowledge to identify deceptive responses. Using mutually-understood words to ask the right questions, the right way, at the right time to get and use the truth.
