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.
Nothing. The authors didn’t have any great insight or knowledge that wasn’t provide in an afternoon of cartoons.
The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern
Sorry, but no.
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.
Middle aged; long University course (science based), and long service as a professional. Cynical and very interested in the real world.
This is a unique and valuable contribution to living in the real world; well done and thankyou.
Spy the Lie does a great job of using real life examples to prove their strategy in action.
What Every Body is saying. It helps identify deception in non verbal. The difference, What Every Body is Saying focuses more on body language, while Spy the Lie focuses on all non verbal language.
I've listened to this book several times. There's a lot of information that I want to commit to memory and listening skills I want to use in my interactions with others every day.
As the mother of 4 children and in my career as a trial lawyer, this book was extremely valuable for confirming what I previously felt were only "hunches" about a person's truthfulness. This author gives you many examples of specific responses that are given when someone is lying, instead of answering the question truthfully. If you want/need to know when someone is being honest with you, or if they're avoiding telling you the truth, then this book is a "must read."
Avid Audio Book listener. Usual suspects are Leadership, Business, Philosophy, Biographies, and Random Fiction. But once every couple of months I choose a book I might not have picked...ever...but with good reviews.
This book would be an good book for a friend to read as long as they are not conspiracy nuts or are the type to diagnose everyone when they learn of a disease. It teaches you a lot of things to look for to help tell if deception might be present.
Is not a current book I can compare it to.
The narration wasn't the best but not the worst. It is straightforward and informative but not particularly dynamic.
Learned to pay attention more to what people don't say as much as what they do. Plus learning different types of tells for deception and how to ask the right questions for truth.
The book also has some really great information for parents who want to grill their kids.
This is a great presentation of a fascinating subject. What you think you hear is not what people are actually saying. What seemed plausible before now seems clearly untruth!If you sick of politicial double talk or just want to see more clearly when someone is being deceptive or just hiding something I suggest this book. The only downside- this is just an introduction. The complexity of the subject would require a great deal of study and work to become proficient.
Not better than print. There are indexes that are not included in the audible version. But a great listen! Whenever I finish one book, I go right back and listen to Spy The Lie for a review. Love it!
I was shocked by all the ways people, politicians, coworkers, bosses, KIDs, everyone lies. Especially useful for parents!!
Being able to identify the times and ways people prevaricate. Very interesting...MMT
Well worth the money!
