Overview

From breaking the law to breaking a promise, how do people lie and how can they be caught? Paul Ekman, a renowned expert in emotions research and nonverbal communication, has now updated his groundbreaking inquiry into lying and methods for uncovering lies. From the deception strategies of international public figures, such as Adolf Hitler and Richard Nixon, to the deceitful behavior of private individuals, including adulterers and petty criminals, Ekman shows that a successful liar most often depends on a willfully innocent dupe. His study describes how lies vary in form and can differ from other types of misinformation, as well as how a person's body language, voice, and facial expressions can give away a lie but still escape the detection of professional lie hunters—judges, police officers, drug enforcement agents, Secret Service agents, and others. Photographs and line drawings.

Author Biography: Paul Ekman is professor of psychology at the University of California, San Francisco.

Like most people, chances are you've been lied to, probably more than you realize. After reading this book, you still may not be able to spot every liar that crosses your path, but you will have the tools to help spot the majority. Good and informative reading.

Ive read several body language books, they have all kept my attention. I got this book and find it useless, it pushes me away. 100 pages deep into it and i still find it repellant to my eyes. Im not going to bother trying to finish this book. I wouldnt recomend this book to anyone that is trying to learn about body language. thumbs down
