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.
I really enjoyed this book. I recommend it. It's not long so it's not a big commitment. I always prefer short books. This book is most interesting when the authors are dissecting interviews with persons that are concealing something. I recommend this book to anyone from any background.
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.
A very good intro to how to spot liars and exaggeration. Teaches one the right questions and directions to use when asking kids about drug use which is handy. If you are living happily in ignorance perhaps do not listen to this book, but if you are sick of being lied to unknowingly then it is a great start.
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."
