I have read the negative reviews and strongly disagree with some of them. I am in law enforcement and I agree it is useful for those in the law enforcement career. I also agree that some of the techniques, if used in the wrong situation, can be damaging in a relationship. That being said, I do not agree it is only for law enforcement or that it will ruin relationships. Some of the techniques are quite useful in the right settings. You must also know when and how to use them. There are times when it is necessary to lie, for example, to save a life (if a loved one is on drugs or engaging in criminal activities). If you are trying to get the truth out of a teen who is suspected of doing drugs and being truthful and honest hasn't worked then this book will give techniques that can help get the truth out. Sometimes we lie to spare someone's feelings ("Do I look good in this dress?"), therefore, I don't think lying is always a no-no. It is sometimes necessary to maintain relationships or protect loved ones. The techniques in this book aren't for everyday use, they are for specific situations to use for the greater good...getting to the truth so things can be corrected. If anyone disagrees please do not respond with insults, I am only giving my opionion.

If anyone thinks this book is completely useless, they're biased in ways they probably aren't even aware of. There is a lot of information in it and whether or not people like the techniques, everyone who has read it learned at least a few things from it. The book has helped me figured out who my real friends are. I also showed this book to my friends and we happily discussed it. There was no conflict at all...my friends didn't accuse me of not trusting them or asked if I tested them with it. The innocent has nothing to hide. I wouldn't mind it if someone used these techniques on me to see if I were lying. I would be happy that my friends are intelligent and cautious. It will also indicate to me that I haven't opened up enough. Suspicion is not something that we have control over. I rather have my friends tell me the truth and let me know that they don't completely trust me so we can work out our problems. It's being real. Trust is an essential part of strong relationships but trust takes time to build. I can't just say: "I should trust you, therefore I trust you." Just because I want to trust someone doesn't necessarily mean it will happen automatically. Trusting people blindly leads to being taken advantage of. Aside from that, anyone with an open mind will learn something from it. On a certain level, it is manipulative and people may be offended. However, saying that it is a horrible book because of that is absurd. This book was well put together. It is easy to understand, easy to read, and the techniques are easy to apply in real life.

I've been reading the book and it brings some really interesting insights on how people think and act and can help us better understand why someone would lie.

I'm reading this piece of bs because a college professor who I'm seeing for therapy recommended it when he saw I was reading 'Why We Lie' by David L.Smith. NO comparison. Smith's book wins hands down. Lieberman's attempt to help us spot liars or teach us how to lie better (which is it?) is so simplistic, he stretches the truth beyond belief for all but the most naive among us. I'm half-way through and thought I'd push through it for the sake of my client but I feel like it's so little meat and so much fat, I may just fib and say I'm done. I like the college prof but he's not as smart as I thought he was. Read Smith's book on this subject. It's fascinating. I'm really amazed by what gets on the New York Times Bestseller list....says a lot about us, doesn't it? No wonder this country is so messed up.

although it has some interesting psychological techniques, mostly towards the end of the book, it is ironic that many of the suggested techniques depend on making assumptions, bending the truth, lying or misleading. It shows many sample conversations,where a particular question or statement is supposed to railroad your 'opponent' into 'confessing'. However there are many alternatives for the opponent to take or say, not just the ones Dr Lieberman assures us would happen. Getting the truth he promises can by no means be guaranteed, as he appears to do. However in many cases what he advises you to say to try to get your opponent to tell the truth can seriously damage your relationship if he was telling the truth.

David brings up many great pionts and has very good techniques! I'm going to purchance his next book because the infermation in this book is so stunning!

I read the book once and now I¿m reading through it again. The book is far and away more comprehensive and practical than any training I¿ve received. I work as a loss-prevention specialist for a large retail company, and have read everything on the subject. Nothing comes close to matching the ease and effectiveness of the techniques in this book. This book is as fascinating as it is effective.

You cannot use law-enforcement tactics in a personal relationship. You will erode trust and make your partner defensive. This should be standard reading for law enforcement, and nobody else.
