Now, Dr. Schafer has evolved his proven-on-the-battlefield tactics for the day-to-day, but no less critical battle of getting people to like you.
In The Like Switch, he presents these techniques for how you can influence, attract, and win people over.

With tips and techniques that hold the key to taking control of your communications, interactions, and relationships, The Like Switch shows you how to read others and get people to like you for a moment or a lifetime.
The FBI—as does every other government agency—creates and obtains records as it carries out its day-to-day operations. Bureau records generally include investigative files, personnel files, and policy guides. A majority of these documents are indexed in their Central Records System (CRS)—an electronic index that allows Bureau personnel to query requested information. While the CRS contains most of the FBI's records, some early records were not indexed, and some of these records have been transferred to the National Archives and Records Administration.
