GET TO THE TRUTH

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.

Listener Opinions

    " blech, what seems like a great idea for a book, becomes a poorly sourced coporate rant on negotiation. i read this after watching meyer's ted.com talk, which was kinda one long plug for her book. anyway i got the book from the library, and was subsequently dissappointed. anyone know of a good body language/ face reading book that's out there. you know one written with rigor, and focused upon the science of reading body language instead of ways you can use it to make money for your business. i mean i understand her angle and trying to find an audience for her book, but still try and be more rigorous, even the layout was like one of those Dummies books. alas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra Mann | 1/24/2014

    " This book helps people determine when they are being lied to or deceived, or perhaps not being told the complete truth. Some of the book is really for professionals who may interrogate someone but a lot of it is useful for other people. I feel most vulnerable with financial advisers, mortgage brokers, car sales people but I have also had to hire and manage people (as well as look for jobs) and this book is definitely helpful in that area. I listened to a TED talk given by the author and I was hooked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Queenie | 1/16/2014

    " Very interesting research, good examples, & a quick read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/6/2014

    " Overall I liked it, although it seemed oddly pointed towards business environments. It especially seemed aimed at upper management and entrepreneurs - which is fine, it's just that I would think that liespotting is useful in pretty much any context for people from all walks of life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kenneth | 1/3/2014

    " Was OK... The deception techniques were interesting but mostly it was dragging because too much of it pertained to a business world that I was unfamiliar with and had no future in anyways. But the techniques have been noted and documented. However I doubt I'll be able to remember half of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin Velthoen | 12/28/2013

    " An excellent overview on detecting when there is "more to the story". Planning to use these new found skills in sales and negotiations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 12/17/2013

    " It's a very academic read, however the information is interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 11/24/2013

    " Succinct insight into the fascinating study of lie detection that focuses on basic techniques that are well-sourced and referenced throughout the book. I recommend watching Meyer's TED talk as well, which is what pointed me towards this work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory Stuart | 9/4/2013

    " Great book if you want to improve your skills at: 1) spotting lies; 2) knowing why people lie and how often (they lie A LOT!); 3) eliciting truth from people; 4) building a brain trust of trustworthy people around you - highly recommended, easy-to-read, well-written, and very informative. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 8/26/2013

    " Not groundbreaking. Somewhat applicable to the business world. If I read another book on deception it will be written by an interrogator. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tai Odunsi | 7/2/2013

    " A slow start into a manual on navigating human falsehoods I would surely read twice "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 2/25/2013

    " Lots of tips on how to spot deception. Potentially incredibly useful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/19/2013

    " I picked up this book because I ran into her TED talk and was intrigued. It was interesting and I notice a lot more now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Walterj3 | 1/22/2013

    " Much more for the business/manager type person, but some helpful advice nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kramer0012us | 12/1/2012

    " Not the best book on deception detection I have ever read, but definately one of the better examples. This book also shows an interesting view of corporate deception and the role that plays. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marjorie Turner | 11/21/2012

    " Love the concept, and was intrigued after seeing the TED.com talk. Too much on negotiations and business, kinda boring. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melek | 8/31/2012

    " Very little info, vastly under my expectation "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda | 8/10/2012

    " I loved this book. Gave me some wonderful insights on body language and deception. I would recommend this book to anyone that feels they need more insight into people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 7/3/2012

    " The book is heavily geared toward the business world, but there is a ton of useful information that can be applied to any situation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Parksfarm | 5/6/2012

    " Interesting but not a whole lot of new information. Sort of a compilation of several other techniques... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggscook | 3/7/2012

    " Good read, but I wasn't expecting it to be so much about business. "
