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 and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions.
Some of the nation's leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations. Liespotting for the first time brings years of knowledge - previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities - into the corporate boardroom, the manager's meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding, and the deal negotiation.

The book was too business oriented for my liking.
It would depend on whether the topic interested me.
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.
I was actually looking for personal level application more than professional.
Hard to listen to. I felt I kept waiting for the information to be shared that is promised by the writer and it comes in little snippits,but not in a meaningful way.
Easy to listen to
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.
