NEW YORK, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Charles Griffin Intelligence is pleased to announce the publication of Philip Segal's "The Art of Fact Investigation: Creative Thinking in the Age of Information Overload" (Ignaz Press).
The founder of New York-based Charles Griffin Intelligence, Segal has spoken and written widely on the topic of fact gathering both for attorneys and general audiences. He appears frequently on Fox Business News, CNN and Bloomberg News. His blog The Ethical Investigator has been consulted by attorneys nationwide.
Now, his book "The Art of Fact Investigation" has been hailed as a tool "for the ultra-inquisitive reader" by Publishers Weekly, and "engaging" and "never dull" by Kirkus Reviews.
Segal argues that investigation is as much an art as it is science. His book is of interest not only to lawyers eager to cut search costs and improve results, but to journalists, corporate officers or any member of the general public who – after some Google searching – asks, "Where do I look next?"
"While the Internet has made searching for facts quicker, it has also made investigation more complicated. Within the vast sea of information, facts about a person could be anywhere," said Segal.
"This is not just a 'how-to' book when it comes to investigation, but a 'why investigation can be so difficult' book as well. Answering the 'why' question helps people become better at fact finding," Segal added.
The Art of Fact Investigation is an essential read for those needing to know:
- Why Google and all the most expensive databases may help, they are only a starting point for the most sophisticated inquiries.
- Why in high stakes matters, "Big Data" and artificial intelligence don't get the job done. Thinking creatively does.
- Why lawyers can waste hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars searching for facts the wrong way. One reason is that law schools spend no time on the subject.
- How the best interviewers prepare for and conduct interviews before depositions or to gather background information.
Available on Amazon.com in hardcover or ebook, or from Ignaz Press. (www.artoffactinvestigation.com).
