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.

'
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!

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 was assisting someone who had been fraudulently sued by a small company. Everything in here is 100 percent true. You just need to know what to look for. This would have been a major help, had I read it prior to the many hours I spent tearing every thing they said apart.

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.

These books are very informative and a great addition in teaching people skills about spying lies. However, it becomes a little disappointing once you start finding out how many people out there are lying to you. Terrible business, but I would highly recommend the book.

In a day where our 4th, 5th and 6th Amendments are being taken away, it is at least helpful to understand how law enforcement works.

Of course, you best bet is to simply say, "Officer, are you detaining me or am I free to go?" If you are being detained, "If I being detained, I do not wish to make any remarks and I am requesting an attorney."

Repeat the above, rinse and repeat over and over.
