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.
Offers some great tells when someone maybe lying as well as some insights into effective ways of asking questions. It is short with some good stories. Forbes has a good review.
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.
I found the insights incredibly interesting and helpful. I encourage people to hang in through the questions to ask for the final analysis.
I listened to the book twice. Entertaining and Educational, what else can you ask for! I will listen to it again in the future for a refresher. It is a book you will want to talk about, then you will think, no, I will keep this information to myself.
I had listened to the preview and was sort of 'meh' about it. But I gambled and got it anyway.
So very glad I did. It was a very entertaining read, that gives you knowledge on how one can spot liars easily, whether it is during interviews, business talks, spouses or when your children lie about silly things.
They clearly outline what techniques are employed where, and how and when they should be.
They show us interviews of OJ Simpson and Sandusky, and dissect them to show us how they knew they were guilty even before their convictions just based on the interviews the CIA agents had listened to.
Overall, an amazing book if you want to have a introductory/intermediate book for deception detection.
This book is amazing and very fascinating. I had an ex boyfriend who cheated on me and I swear this book covers his deception word for word. My ex followed the deception patterns exactly as described in book. It felt like it was written about him. The narrator is excellent. I have heard narrators so a poor job and it makes me want to shut off the audio book, but this narrator is superb! WELL worth your money. It is one of the best books I have ever purchased!!
According to this book, everything you will hear is a lie. I would be very cautious with this book, because assuming someone is lying is a self poisonous prophecy. Eventually you will convince your self that it is true because of what you heard here. The book lacks sufficient examples.
