    People - friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople - lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines - facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field - into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book was too business oriented for my liking.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Pamela Meyer? Why or why not?

    It would depend on whether the topic interested me.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Some really glaring pronunciation mistakes, such as "irrevelant" instead of "irrelevant".
    Her attempts at altering her voice to read excerpts from other sources sounded like a mom reading a bedtime story to her kids.


    What did you take away from Liespotting that you can apply to your work?

    I was actually looking for personal level application more than professional.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    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.

    Where does Spy the Lie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Having listened to Joe Navarro's "What EveryBODY Is Saying", I felt this audiobook provided similar content, but with excellent suggestions for honing questions that an interviewer might ask of a potential hire, or an employer of an employee in an otherwise uncomfortable situation. My only misgiving is when the reading refers to "Figure 1" or "Figure 2", etc., and there was no companion download to include what might be important images. I'll never know how important they were to include unless they are available or unless I get the hard copy somewhere... please Audible, let the reader decide on their importance rather than make the decision on our behalf.
