Publisher's Summary

People - friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople - lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines - facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field - into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions.
Some of the nation's leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations. Liespotting for the first time brings years of knowledge - previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities - into the corporate boardroom, the manager's meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding, and the deal negotiation.

A lot of faffing, not enough data

Overall good information, but half of the book can be skipped. Especially first 2 or 3 chapters - these can be summarised as "Your life will be wonderful if you'll be able to spot a lie". Also last 2 chapters are not really relevant.

And the real information is getting lost in the noise of "how good it would be". I wish the book was shortened like in half, but without the noise.

I'm keen to re-listen the book as the good part of the materials are not easy to settle in and need a revision, but I'm hesitant because it is so full of noise as well.

Deceptive Title

The general concepts of dissembling are covered but half the book is padding which is both irritating and patronising. If you want to understand the subject start with Paul Ekman's work, this title adds little or nothing to his established work.
