Summary

"Everybody lies." (Gregory House)

It’s true…while nobody likes to be called a liar; the reality is we all lie! We are taught to lie by the very people who end up being most offended by the practice. Our parents tell us to 'wipe that expression off our face', when we turn our nose up at food we don’t like - they would apparently prefer us to pretend we do like it rather than admit the truth. Occasionally we are told to use a different tone of voice - a nice one - that doesn’t reflect how we really feel. This is how we begin to learn that sometimes a lie can benefit us in the short term. As such the ability to lie becomes an important part of our communication toolbox.

What we are not taught is how to detect a lie - possibly the most powerful skill you can have. As part of the New Emotional Intelligence series, in this book human behaviour and communication expert Craig Beck reveals the lie detection secrets of the F.B.I. and behavioural analysis unit (B.A.U). Using these little known skills you, too, can become a master of reading the truth behind another person's story. The knowledge in this book will have practical applications in all areas of your life:

  • Interviewing prospective employees
  • Price negotiation
  • Dating & relationships
  • Effective parenting
  • Career negotiations
  • And much more…

Fabulous book, thoroughly recommended

A great book, easy to listen too and also easy to relate too. Packed full of advise, recommendations for take aways. Perfect listening for a 3 hour drive but will definitely listen to again and perhaps purchase the book to read, as I like to highlight and make notes in the book.

Just a great, interesting a fact packed book.

Well not what was expectedb

I have read allot of these books. The book was well read but far far to short. It also spent the first 10min at least waffling about how much this was going to transform you. I hate to say it but all the info and more can be found on the Internet with ease. For me I wont recommend.I don't think it does justice to others whome put more in.

This all may sound very harsh indeed but emotion aside it lacks content and structure and if I'm honest doesnt do what it say on the tin.

I would like to say on a positive the narrator was exceptionally good and the quality superb just a pitty about its content.

Good introduction of how to detect lies

From the title, I thought this book was about a different form of Emotional Intelligence.

However this was a fascinating surprise! And now I want to try to perfect this skill.

Easy to understand

Better than I expected!

It started off slow and I was about to stop listening thinking it was too elementary, then it picked up and really had some advanced thoughts. I have been studying body language for 20 years and learned things I did not know. I look forward to listening to several more times and would recommend it. The last 2/3 of the book is packed with interesting science about body language and emotional intelligence. I am glad I bought it!

Extremely helpful in learning to detect lies

I was a police officer for 17 years of which I was also was an investigator. I only wish that I had discovered this book back then. I highly recommend it if you want to learn to detect people lying. I always knew my spouse was lying to me for years and now I know for sure.

Good refresher and a little more

Much of the material has been circulated enough to make it unsurprising to hear it again in this book. There were, however, a few things that were new to me.

Overall, I enjoyed the book both as a refresher to remind me to pay more attention in my interviews, and also as a catalyst to continue to hone my skills.

Unlike some authors, Beck is able to narrate his own book adequately, and there was nothing in his speech that distracted me from the material.

useful read

Has some great information with many applications. I only wish that somehow I could look at the examples while he is talking about them. Tough as an audio book that way but still a great start to a useful skill.

Excellent!

The best succinct non-verbal communication book I've ever read/listened too. The theories are backed up by countless other experts.
I highly recommended this book.

Too Short

Too short and too high level. Deeper details please. Psychological and neurological examination would be helpful.

Short but effective listen.

I enjoyed the topic of this book. The strategies were similar to other books I've listened to. I look forward to implementing the strategies. I am also going to go look on YouTube for the videos on micro expressions.
