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.

Very well done book by someone who has done an extensive amount of research in the area. Discusses common misconceptions and discusses actual methods (all of which require some level of practice/training). Arguments are back by actual psychological evidence from research studies.

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
