Overview

Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage / Edition 3

From breaking the law to breaking a promise, how do people lie and how can they be caught?The science behind Fox TV's series Lie To Me.
In this revised edition, Paul Ekman, a renowned expert in emotions research and nonverbal communication, adds a new chapter to present his latest research on his groundbreaking inquiry into lying and the methods for uncovering lies. Ekman has figured out the most important behavioral clues to deceit; he has developed a one-hour self-instructional program that trains people to observe and understand "micro expressions"; and he has done research that identifies the facial expressions that show whether someone is likely to become violent. ?Telling Lies?describes how lies vary in form and how they can differ from other types of misinformation that can reveal untruths. It discusses how a person's body language, voice, and facial expressions can give away a lie but still fool professional lie hunters—even judges, police officers, drug enforcement agents, and Secret Service agents.

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
