About the Author

He nabbed killers, kidnappers, con men, bank robbers, and embezzlers, and he played a key role in identifying the Oklahoma City bombers. He currently writes suspense novels and nonfiction books, gives talks about the FBI, writing, and how to spot lies, and lives on a horse ranch in Kansas. He can be contacted at markbouton@msn.com.

More About the Author

I was an FBI agent for 30 years, working in New York, Chicago, Puerto Rico, Texas, and Kansas. I nabbed killers, kidnappers, and bank robbers, and I played a key role in solving the Oklahoma City bombing. Now I write suspense novels, with five published. I like showing readers what cops and FBI agents do. And I wrote a non-fiction book titled How to Spot Lies Like the FBI. In it, you'll learn how to read faces, bodies, and verbal indicators to identify fibs.

My novels have explored organized crime, government hit men, racist plots, cybercrime, movie lore, religious mysticism, satanic cults, and cosmology. I enjoy telling readers what I've learned about life and the way individuals act in stressful and comic situations. As Oscar Wilde said, "Life is too important to be taken seriously." But we can examine it, laugh and learn, and then just shake our heads.

I also like to read, lift weights, go for walks, play my electric guitar, contemplate the universe and talk to groups about my writing projects and ways to spot lies. I live in Kansas on a horse ranch. My website is www.mmbouton.com.

Mark Bouton has written a book that transcends all levels of society. Whether you're a professional, student, housewife, regardless of your age, this book gives a pragmatic insight into why and how people tell lies. The author discusses what to look for in terms of speech patterns and body language. What's really practical is that anyone can benefit from reading this tome. It contains common sense advice on how to deal with your boss, co-workers, even your children. This is a book that is not only interesting but useful. It should be required reading, particularly for police officers.

'
Mark's How to Spot Lies' is so very informative, backed up with pictures of facial expressions & body language to demonstrate what he is telling his readers. His background explains so much about his knowledge of his subject (or/and) subjects. His examples are excellent & in today's world of computer language, mobile phones, cyberspace,( just a small sample of what's out there) & the capabilities of all of these expose us to all manner of falsification. The more knowledge we have to help us see thru the subterfuge, the better. It's a book to read & re-read. Keep it by your phone or computer & refer to it often. Thanks Mark!

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mary Kennedy on July 6, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm a clinical psychologist/mystery writer and recommend this book whenever I give a workshop. I've also recommended it to several clients. It's a terrific look into lie detection--it's packed with information, it's timely and it's entertaining. Absolutely a must-read. The author, Mark Bouton, is a retired FBI agent and is one of the few people I know who has the "street cred" to sift through all the scientific studies, add his own anecdotes, draw on his experience with the Bureau and come up with a book that is highly readable and worth keeping as a reference book. It is a classic in the field. I also enjoy his novels--they're action-packed with white-knuckle suspense and enough plot twists and turns to keep you turning the pages.

Reading this book brings up several people I have encountered. I wish I had had this book earlier to guide me.
The quotes from noted authors and philosophers are enlightening to read. I will practice these thoughts and see how I can eliminate future problems.
One should keep this book on hand for guidance.

Being a person who seeks the positive traits in all things, I'm a BAD judge of those with less than good intentions. Finding myself in awkward situations, which may have been avoided had I known of the tools Mark Bouton teaches in his book. He uses and reinforces the signs and tells throughout his book. I'm grateful I, now, have the tools to better arm myself. I went so far as to use 3 x 5 note cards, as I did throughout college, to keep the tools, expressed in this book, ready at all times &, as a handy review.
I feel MUCH more confident a out my ability to read people. Plus, it's fun!!!!

I keep reading and re-reading this book. It also has pictures to show the emotion. Now when I am in a conversation I unconsciously am looking for clues and you really can tell! It has been a real eye opener. I would recommend this book even though there are others this one is layed out in an easy format. I would highly recommend this book for day to day business. The book actually came sooner than promised.

It is a well written piece that explores deception and how to train yourself to detect it and protect yourself from the liars in your life.
