Publisher's Summary

Lena wrote You're Lying! because no matter what your profession or life circumstances, you need the skills to take control of a situation, detect deception, and reveal the truth. While you probably won't ever have to interrogate a detainee who doesn't want to tell you about an upcoming terrorist attack - as Lena has - You're Lying! will help you deal with that salesperson trying to rip you off, the kid bullying your child who claims innocence, a cheating spouse, or a dissembling boss. As the adage says, knowledge is power.

Lena interrogated numerous members of Al Qaeda and the Taliban while stationed at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, then taught those skills to Defense Department personnel for years afterward. Her ability to build rapport, accurately read body language, and employ effective questioning techniques led to numerous successes that saved American lives. You will also learn her easy-to-follow five-step program on how to accurately detect verbal (both spoken and written) and nonverbal deceptive tells, how to conduct an effective line of questioning, and what to do after you identify the lies we all face every day. Take the knowledge in You're Lying! and empower yourself.

Pretty Good

This book is a good start for new investigators to grasp the basics interviewing subjects. I think the author should have elaborated more on how to question and look for deceptions rather then sugar coat examples. However,
An ex interrogator won’t spill all the secrets!

Ended Up Being Useful

About halfway through the book, I was considering returning it. The author spent way too much time previewing upcoming chapters. Stop telling us how great and life changing the following chapters will be.
My second gripe was that there was no PDF included. This was inexcusable as the author referred to it quite a bit in the early chapters.

That said, I did really enjoy the 2nd half of the book. It was very interesting and I learned a lot.

In total, it was half a very good book.

Too republican

Every reference made in this book is about a Democrat politician. Like republicans aren’t doing worst. After a while you’ll even say I get it you don’t like Democrats dam woman. But the info was ok

Great book!

This book was very straightforward, providing a lot of useful information on detecting deception. I wish the methods provided for "extracting the truth" contained more examples relevant to/ tailored for questioning a significant other or spouse rather than interrogating a witness or criminal. While I wouldn't want to deviate from the overall guidelines, techniques, & insight provided in this book, I do have a hard time believing any spouse would be willing to sit through such extensive questioning should the need arise.
However, I am still eager to implement what I've learned through reading this.

Love it.

As a fellow trainer in interviewing skills with a focus on getting truth and spotting deception, I found Lena’s book a great read. (Listen). Great all round tips for broad application.
