    Story

    Imagine how different your life would be if you could tell whether someone was lying or telling you the truth. Be it hiring a new employee, investing in a financial interest, speaking with your child about drugs, confronting your significant other about suspected infidelity, or even dating someone new, having the ability to unmask a lie can have far-reaching and even life-altering consequences. As former CIA officers, Philip Houston, Michael Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the world’s best at recognizing deceptive behavior.

    What would have made Spy the Lie better?

    Useful information, optimization for audio.


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Absolutely not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Fred Berman’s performances?

    Yes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Spy the Lie?

    Anything that refers to items that cannot be seen.


    Any additional comments?

    This is, without a doubt, the worst book I have ever listened to or read. The information is basic common sense with almost no added value.

    Further, the examples provided are so watered down and underwhelming that I found myself struggling to continue to the end. In nearly every one, the "suspect" spontaneously confesses to everything in a matter of minutes after being asked the simplest questions.

    The analysis of instances like Anthony Weiner's bungled press conference show no exemplary deception detection prowess. Anyone watching that disaster knew he was hiding a great deal.

    Lastly, the book is not optimized for audio, more than once the narrator refers to items that cannot be seen.

    Wish I could get a refund and nearly 3 hours of my life back.
