Once the author moves into the science of 'No', there are no citations, just their own limited judgement.

I just listened to Chris Voss 'Never Split the Difference ' and his real world examples from an FBI agent's perspective trump the authors here .

A decent book overall, just wish they 'stayed in their lane' or cited more sources when making a general assumption.
