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."
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.
