Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three former CIA officers—the worlds foremost authorities on recognizing deceptive behavior—share their techniques for spotting a lie
 
 
Imagine how different your life would be if you knew when someone was lying or telling you the truth. Whether hiring a new employee, assessing the veracity of legal testimony, investing in a financial interest, knowing when your boss is being completely up-front, ascertaining whether your child is being totally honest with you, or even dating someone new, having the ability to unmask a lie can have far-reaching and even life-altering consequences.
 
As former CIA agents, Philip Houston, Mike Floyd and Susan Carnicero are among the worlds best at recognizing deceptive behavior. Spy The Lie chronicles the fascinating story of how they used a methodology Houston developed to detect deception in the counter-terrorism and criminal investigation realms, and how these techniques can be applied in our daily lives.

Through thrilling anecdotes from their careers in counterintelligence, the authors provide a foolproof means of identifying deceptive behavior, showing readers how to study nuances, both verbal and non-verbal, including:

• Hand(s) to the face in response to a question

• Grooming gestures

• Invoking religion (“I swear to God”)

• Repeating the question

• Qualifiers (“Basically”)

• And much, much more.

Synopsis:

Three former CIA officers—among the worlds foremost authorities on recognizing deceptive behavior—share their proven techniques for uncovering a lie

 

Imagine how different your life would be if you could tell whether someone was lying or telling you the truth. Be it hiring a new employee, investing in a financial interest, speaking with your child about drugs, confronting your significant other about suspected infidelity, or even dating someone new, having the ability to unmask a lie can have far-reaching and even life-altering consequences.

 

As former CIA officers, Philip Houston, Michael Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the worlds best at recognizing deceptive behavior. Spy the Lie chronicles the captivating story of how they used a methodology Houston developed to detect deception in the counterterrorism and criminal investigation realms, and shows how these techniques can be applied in our daily lives.

 

Through fascinating anecdotes from their intelligence careers, the authors teach readers how to recognize deceptive behaviors, both verbal and nonverbal, that we all tend to display when we respond to questions untruthfully. For the first time, they share with the general public their methodology and their secrets to the art of asking questions that elicit the truth.

 

Spy the Lie is a game-changer. You may never read another book that has a more dramatic impact on your career, your relationships, or your future.
