Very well read with lots of details and examples. Great content. It's exactly what you hope it's going to be when you see the title.
No, the entire book could be condensed into a couple chapters. It sometimes comes across as over-dramatic. There is some good info, but way too much time spend on analyzing politicians and a former coach. The authors are clearly liberals.
It just kind of ends ubruptly. These guys might know how to detect deceptive behavior, but they're not great authors.
Without Fred, I would not have finished the book.
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
SPY the Lie is a solid how to book with just the right number of real life examples. The authors do a good job helping the reader understand the model they create. They do not get wrapped up in themselves like so many how-to books tend to do. The writing is clear and pragmatic. Book has a series of example questions in the appendix which are quite handy. My chief interest in the book is using the information to become a better hiring manager. You might also consider reading “What Every Body Is Saying” by Navarro. Reading both of these books gives you strong reinforcing material.
Hell yeah! I loved the details of actual interviews, like OJ's interview with the LAPD detectives and then analyzing it. So interesting! Solid gold!
I learned tons of stuff I'd never heard before anywhere else!
I encourage all LEOs I meet to purchase this book. I tell them if they don't read it twice in 3 months I'll buy it off of them. I have never had to buy a book.
This is a MUST read.
Very interesting and informative. Very useful especially for attorneys. Will read more of their books.
The person who wrote this book had good lessons to teach but the narrator got angrier as the audio went on and he got do mean he was a total turnoff. I quit listening half way through and would take a refund. I wish more authors would read their own books.
