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.
Yes, there is an abundance of information that I would need to listen to this book two more times before I could practice it well and develop a routine of using these skills.
I have attended various interview and interrogation schools. This breaks down the information that is presented in these courses. It also expands on further information and it makes great sense.
The reader of this book helps bring this book to life. I would have thought this book to be entertaining not just educational.
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!
