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.
Contrary to what preconceived ideals, this book brings new information. Specifically, about interrogation techniques that would be very useful in day to day life.
It doesn't make light of the complexity of reading human emotions, the need for baselines. But instead tries to allow a comprehensive view to make well informed decisions on the validity of a persons statement.
More advanced interrogation techniques. These are often opposite of those techniques commonly viewed in Hollywood and TV created series.
The Complexity of Story Telling
Performance made this a book one of those you'd like to listen straight through.
Excellent and a good important body of information. Often times I myself have thought these types of behaviors are telling. With obvious huge experience the author explains. Narrator not at all good but hey. It was good other than that.
Addicted to audible. One the best things that happened to me
The book is a must for people in sales, customer service and surely law enforcement. I believe the findings in the book need refinement as the assumptions are not based on real science rather than observations.
This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to thus far.
I did not have one favorite character per se, but there were many interesting one's throughout the book.
No this is the first performance I have listened to of his. He gave an good performance. My only problem was that his voice would sometimes fluctuate a little low and quiet. This was only a problem when I was in the car. Other than that is was great.
The section outlining some of the interviews with prominent liars of the last few years troubled me greatly. This is because by the time the authors layed out the interviews with these liars, they had spent the entire book outlining all the various indicators of deception. After doing so, most of the lying was just so blatant, easy to see,...and truly troubling.
Excellent book for your work, relationships, and day to day interactions. I highly, highly recommend it, and will reread it.
