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.
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 have noticed deceptive behavior much more consistently after going into the L-squared mode. I enjoyed listening to this book. I did not enjoy the beginning because it felt like they were trying to be too dramatic. that said, it was a good introductory reading for this type of study.

I am a writer and entrepreneur and have also studied Forensic Psychology and behavior analysis, etc. As both a former teacher and now a writer who was involved in the 2nd Revolution, information is power. This book helped me to fine-tune my skills on how to spot a lie and to check information for accuracy in the light of current events.
Excellent information and delivery; Susan is a great presenter too with the videos. I like the narration as well by Mr. Berman.
The interrogation of Trojan horse, Anthony Weiner
It wasn't an emotional experience or narrative. But the information inspired me to continue my research on human behavior and how to draw accurate conclusions on those behaviors.
Please put out more information on these topics based on CIA techniques.
