Review

"Don't lie to David Lieberman." -- The New York Times, interview October, 1999

"In my more than 20 years of laws enforcement, I've never seen any lie-detecting techniques so uncannily accurate." -- Sheriff Richard Mack, popular consultant and media expert

"You Can Read Anyone," a new book by legendary behaviorist Dr. David J. Lieberman, uses proven psychological techniques to help figure out a person's thoughts and feelings in minutes.

An expert in human behavior and interpersonal relationships, he's written two New York Times bestseller titles on the subject - "Never Be Lied to Again" and "Get Anyone to Do Anything and Never Feel Powerless Again."

Lieberman harnesses specific psychological techniques that can be applied to any person in any situation - with startlingly accurate results. Whether it is in a poker game, a high-stakes negotiation, or a sales pitch, you can tell within minutes whether people are bluffing or telling the truth, bored or interested, an ally or saboteur.

He has also appeared on more than 200 television shows as an expert in the field. He has even gone "head-to-head" on live television, pitting himself against skilled polygraph examiners and scoring just as well every single time.

"'You Can Read Anyone' is not a fluffy collection of ineffective tips. Lieberman offers proven psychological techniques that deliver on their promise to get inside a person's head . . .with eerie accuracy. Of all his books, his latest, "You Can Read Anyone" is superior in every way . . . Dr. Lieberman's insights into human nature are breathtaking and practical. --- Focus Magazine -- review, Focus Magazine

All in all.... a very interesting book.
Zoe
Instead, this book contains specific and proven psychological techniques that can be instantly applied to any person in almost any situation.
Stephen Pletko
I will say that the first 68 pages are worth buying the book, but it would be my suggestion not to bother reading the rest.

"As the only one of its type, this program [or system outlined in this book] offers a complete, practical, easy-to-use system that you can use to measure a person's thoughts and feelings quickly, at any time."

The above quotation is found in the introduction of this fascinating book by Dr. David J. Lieberman, author and "internationally recognized leader" of human behavior and interpersonal relationships.

Be aware that the system in this book is not about reading someone based on their body language, their speech pattern, or how they dress. It is not about developing some mystical power such as telepathy. Instead, this book contains specific and proven psychological techniques that can be instantly applied to any person in almost any situation.

Is this system absolutely foolproof? Of course not. No system is. But you will gain a "statistical advantage" to reading a person by using the methods in this book.

The book itself is divided into two sections:

Section one (7 chapters) has techniques that will give you much insight into people, and will help you gain the advantage in practically every situation. Each chapter in this section is based on seven basic questions. These questions are as follows:

(1) Is this person hiding anything? (2) Does the person like or not like someone or something? (3) Is the person really confident or just attempting to play it cool? (4) How is a person really feeling? (5) Is the person really interested or are you just wasting your time? (6) Whose side is a person really on? (7) How safe, stable, and sane is a person...really?

Format: Paperback
This is yet another "buy-this-to-get-the-secrets" book aimed at corporate America, exploiting that mainstream desperate, competitive edge. But when examined closely, this book really doesn't give you any helpful tools to use in the social arena of reading others' sincerity; it is anecdotal, non-rational, and provides examples that are too narrow and templative to provide a deductive understanding of this concept. There are no photos at all, only insets of anecdotal fictions used to describe what the author says you should do. It amounts to an poser's list of conversational phrases and maneuvering tactics to bludgeon out responses from other people, and will just make you look like the confrontational equivalent of a Stephen Covey geek.

If you really want to learn how to perceive non-verbal stress, self-doubt, insecurity, etc., if you want to learn the *gestures* that exhibit these things, buy the book "What Every Body is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People." It is full of photos and it describes the underlying instincts causing all of them. Needless to say, it also has a more substantial and academic bibliography.

Format: Paperback
I have never reviewed a book before but I am so struck and disturbed by the cattiness and vindictiveness of Jen's "review" of a book, she admits to never reading,that I am writing my first one.

I am a lover of self help books. Name the big ones and I own it. I have read most of Lieberman's books and found them to be fast paced, insightful and easy to read. This book struck me as different because of the depth. The first part is cool techniques on how to read people and examples that make it usable and very relatable. I thought the part about how people use pronouns to distance themselves from events to be brilliant ( see page 34) Here is where I felt this book was different - the last couple of chapters were especially insightful and deep. It helped me to understand how self esteem colors the way we see the world. It helped me to understand what motivates people at the core and helped me to understand what motivates me. This is truly a OUTSTANDING book. One of the top 10 self help books that I have ever read.

.
This book will open your eyes with a few techniques in non-verbal communication. The objective of the book is to keep you from being manipulated....But, the opposite is also true.

I use these techniques to insure that my non-verbal message is the same as my verbal. It has helped immensely in dealing with clients and potential clients.

Format: Paperback
I have two other David Lieberman books which I loved so I was very excited to read this book. However, it was a complete disappointment for these reasons:

1) The author practically plagiarizes his own work. While I was reading this book there were paragraphs and examples that I knew I had read before. When I looked back at "Never Be Lied to Again" and "Get Anyone to Do Anything" I could find the exact same material. So instead of buying this book which is watered down and pretty much useless, I would recommend Lieberman's other two books. I have personally used the techniques in his other two books with amazing results.
2) This book was a long winded, babbling jog through a pop-psychology class. The idea that you can get meaningful information out what color pen someone uses to sign a contract, is absurd. Most people probably wouldn't even know which color they used if you asked them five minutes later, or they always use black pens to sign formal documents. Many of the examples in the book could be summed up with, "Nice try, but I don't buy it."
3) Finally, the last half of the book never really gets anywhere, says anything, and it repeats itself. The author tries to promote how you will be able to instantly analyze someone but doesn't actually tell you how to do anything other than listen to the person or make generalized guesses on the person based on one thing you might have seen. For example, when the author is telling you how to know if someone is emotionally unstable he suggests listening to see if the person you are "analyzing" says anything about being "tired of it all" or threatens violence. Thanks, but I don't need a book to tell me someone is about to comment violence when they just warn me about it.

This book is not worth the price, but more importantly is not worth the time it would take you to read it.
