Audie Award Nominee, Business and Educational, 2013
Three former CIA officers - among the world’s foremost authorities on recognizing deceptive behavior - share their proven techniques for uncovering a lie.
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. Spy the Lie chronicles the captivating story of how they used a methodology Houston developed to detect deception in the counterterrorism and criminal investigation realms, and shows how these techniques can be applied in our daily lives.
Through fascinating anecdotes from their intelligence careers, the authors teach listeners how to recognize deceptive behaviors, both verbal and nonverbal, that we all tend to display when we respond to questions untruthfully. For the first time, they share with the general public their methodology and their secrets to the art of asking questions that elicit the truth.
Spy the Lie is a game-changer. You may never experience another book that has a more dramatic impact on your career, your relationships, or your future.

No, the entire book could be condensed into a couple chapters. It sometimes comes across as over-dramatic. There is some good info, but way too much time spend on analyzing politicians and a former coach. The authors are clearly liberals.
It just kind of ends ubruptly. These guys might know how to detect deceptive behavior, but they're not great authors.
Without Fred, I would not have finished the book.
Offers some great tells when someone maybe lying as well as some insights into effective ways of asking questions. It is short with some good stories. Forbes has a good review.
Very well read with lots of details and examples. Great content. It's exactly what you hope it's going to be when you see the title.
Hard to believe some of the people especially the spy were so obvious in their deceit. I don't know I feel like maybe there were a lot of holes in the story.....all cases seemed to come to resolution too fast. Not great as an Audible book, would maybe be better as a training video.
Great book with many real world examples. I wish the authors went into more detail on applying the model though...left me wanting more. The book ended way too soon!Fantastic narrator, voice fit perfectly.
Just a poster
It depends. This book is for those that are into studying people and their responses. I believe that it could send the wrong message to some.
I enjoyed the way they took the interviews apart and discussed the actions. It was occationally dry but not without merit.
I don't know if it was the narator or the authors but the book seemed a little melodramatic for my taste. Made me think of Don Adams.
The authors provide a number of places where the deception was present. I would like them to have provided an instance(s) where there was no deception.
This book is very well written, but it is a lot of information. There are definitely practical uses for this type of book, and I intend to use them. It speaks clearly but it is kind of fast. I do wish it did give more examples though.
I love the quality of this audio book. it makes the conversations flow freely and teaches you to hear it as if you were watching a movie only forcing you to imagine it as its going on. book was thought out and well written. well played! for this genre it's one of my favorites
