As someone in a leadership position, this book was actually quite inspiring. Didn’t expect that. Too often people just avoid conflict and shut down a conversation because it’s awkward, when a good leader should be asking tough questions. This was a key value of the book as a tool for real people, and I was very impressed with these discussions.
If you’re flipping through the pages for the takeaways there's satisfaction to be found, but the book (smartly) emphasizes there’s no quick fix in spotting one “gotcha” facial tic, etc. Overall the book was an interesting mix of intuitive indicators about a liar's uncomfortable appearance and tell-tale signs you would never have considered. The lessons from FBI interrogators and Paul Ekman in particular were thorough and convincing. Bravo.
