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.

Audible is the balm for an itch I can't scratch that sits right between my ears.
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
I work in IT, I love reading, I love Writing and for those daily travels too and fro I love to listen to Audible books too
Interesting, telling, useful
How easy they make it sound, how simple and how watchful I am now when interviewing or talking to people
I listen to books on my long commute.
They teach you techniques for reading people.
How to see indicators deceptive behavior and why people might act that way when they have something to hide.
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!
I enjoyed the stories and how this book keeps your attention and really makes u think.
The skills it is trying to teach along with the attention holding way the story is written.
It made me get teary at times but made me feel I was empowering myself.
I can't wait to listen to it again!
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.
I have never read another similar book, it is very unique.
This is the first of Fred Berman's performances I have listened to but would definitely listen to him again.
I loved the narrator of this audio book. I highly recommend it, especially for anyone who is interested in the psychology of man.
