Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Interesting, Informative and Entertaining"

    The methods discussed in this book are interesting, well explained and may just work. The examples presented are in some cases amazing, others outrageous and more often than not amusing.

    The narration is very good, clear and read with an enthusiasm to make this work of non-fiction enjoyable to listen too and not a chore.

    Well worth listening too

    Story
    "Get through the first part, it's worth it!"

    I read a lot of psychology books, and this came up as a suggested book for me on audibles. I thought it sounded interesting so I got it. The first chapter or two seemed to drag on a bit, but once they start getting into the methods they are teaching, I found it fascinating. It takes such a simple approach and it makes so much sense. I liked it so much that I bought the hard copy just to have it to reference from time to time.

    They warn about using these methods against friends, family, and co-workers and I can see why. Just be careful you don't become to paranoid!

    Overall a really good listen and very informative!

    Story
    "Fascinating subject matter"
    What made the experience of listening to Spy the Lie the most enjoyable?

    Fred Berman did a great job narrating. This book might have been a fact heavy product but was written in a way that made it very interesting the whole way through. Fred Berman added a life to the book with his reading and matched the story well to make it a really good experience.


    What other book might you compare Spy the Lie to and why?

    I have never read another similar book, it is very unique.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first of Fred Berman's performances I have listened to but would definitely listen to him again.
