Publisher's Summary

People - friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople - lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines - facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field - into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions.
Some of the nation's leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations. Liespotting for the first time brings years of knowledge - previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities - into the corporate boardroom, the manager's meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding, and the deal negotiation.

The Book is a Lie

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I could not be more disappointed in this book. In short the interesting part of the book was filled with contradictions.

A light read of the book will appear informative, but the problem occurs when over several chapters the information on how to spot a lie is contradicted time and time again.

Later in the book the author reviews the need of businesses to have trained consultants conduct deception audits. I was left with the impression that the entire purpose of the book was so that the author could sell or recommend such services by saying "look I wrote the book on how to spot a lie"

I understand how some readers (especially small and medium business owners) might love the concept of being able to tell, or having a consultant tell them when someone is lying to them. However this book appears to me as dangerously painting a desire to know how to tell if someone is deceiving you, with a science.

If you are interested in exploring the subject I would recommend that you read.

About 1/4 of the book is about Lie Spotting

A very long introduction and lots of views about when and where lies are okay and not okay. Lots of stories about people being lied to and how they handled it. A whole chapter on how a company might have a "trust audit" done by professionals. A chapter on having a group of people that give you advice.

It is more of a book that would help you track down other resources that, might, tell you how to spot lies.

A lot of faffing, not enough data

Overall good information, but half of the book can be skipped. Especially first 2 or 3 chapters - these can be summarised as "Your life will be wonderful if you'll be able to spot a lie". Also last 2 chapters are not really relevant.

And the real information is getting lost in the noise of "how good it would be". I wish the book was shortened like in half, but without the noise.

I'm keen to re-listen the book as the good part of the materials are not easy to settle in and need a revision, but I'm hesitant because it is so full of noise as well.

Deceptive Title

The general concepts of dissembling are covered but half the book is padding which is both irritating and patronising. If you want to understand the subject start with Paul Ekman's work, this title adds little or nothing to his established work.

Quite good and I will listen to it again

Mostly quite good. I'll definitely be listening to the first 2/3 ,ore than once again. Let down with the last 1/4-1/3 which seemed like filler content and which was only loosely related.
