Publisher's Summary

The methods discussed in this audiobook offer numerous opportunities for an interviewer - be it a parent, spouse, boss, or a law enforcement official - to detect deception. Without the aid of a machine, there are three ways you can determine if someone is lying: by analyzing how a person phrases his statement, by observing a subject's nonverbal gestures, and by examining a person's handwriting traits.

Mark McClish brings these three methods together for detecting deception in his book Don't Be Deceived. People's words will betray them. Mr. McClish's statement analysis techniques will show you how to examine the language used in a verbal and written statement to determine if the person is being truthful.

When a person knowingly tells a lie, it will create a degree of stress, which usually surfaces in the form of a body movement. You will learn some of the common nonverbal signs that indicate a person is being deceptive. Don't Be Deceived also discusses several handwriting traits that can show if a person is being dishonest.

How letters are formed, how much pressure is used, and how lines of writing are sloped can give us insight into a person's thought process. When individuals are lying, their words, actions, and writing styles can reveal their deception.

Hands down the best book on deception

I have read a lot of books on deception but this is hands down the best book on the topic. It’s a real gem, listen or read it at least twice . The authors other book “I know your lying” is also a great book
