Publisher's Summary

This paradigm shifting how-to guide effortlessly teaches you how to outwit liars and get them to reveal the truth from former FBI agent and author of the "practical and insightful" (William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes) best seller The Like Switch.

Unlike many other books on lie detection and behavioral analysis, this revolutionary guide reveals the FBI-developed practice of elicitation, the field-tested technique for detecting deception and encouraging people to provide information they would otherwise keep secret. Now you can learn this astonishing method directly from the expert who created this technique and pioneered it for the FBI.

Filled with easy-to-follow, accessible lessons reinforced by fascinating stories of how to put these skills put into action using natural human behaviors, The Truth Detector shows you all of the tips and techniques you need to gain someone's trust and get liars to reveal the truth.

Incredibly Insightful

Incredibly interesting book on human behaviour and solicitation. Dr. Schafer does a great job showing how solicitation is used and ways to defend against it.

Excellent book filled with practical examples

While I was familiar with nearly all of the techniques, strategies and social psychology cited, I found it so helpful to learn from an ex FBI law enforcement expert how it is used in espionage and with criminals.
I ordered the paperback too. A rare act but, this book has lists of techniques I wish to have visual access to.

Excellent author and narrator

Love this book, Some information over laped from his previous book, but still a great read. Narrator is superb. I Personally can't get into audio books if narration has an annoying, raspy voice.
