    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.

    Story

    This audio book fell far below my expectations. I felt like there could've been far more substance to the methodology which they teach and subscribe too. Many case studies were used to substantiate their claims but after an hour, it's like they're using this medium to boast about their accomplishments. This causes one to loose sight of the methodology and get swamped by story after story.

    It's also very difficult to believe in some of the case studies. One that jumps to mind - The CIA informant - 20 years in the field - who goes to a standard, run-of-the-mill interview. In the space of 5 minutes, the interviewer is able to crack the informant. He goes from admitting to being a double agent for 20 years to falling just short of confessing about the time where he picked up a penny and didn't hand it in to the police.

    I suggest this book to people who are able to filter a Google search. There are some lessons but first you've got to sort through the 'ad-infested-green-card-lotto-winning sites'.
