I am one of the lucky ones to receive an advanced copy of Liespotting after I heard the author Pamela Meyer speaking on the subject of her book. Liespotting provides a true under-the-hood analysis of human beings and why we do what we do. And the amount of empirical research that went into Liespotting was incredible, so much so I would have imagined its author a dry analyst in a lab coat. But I truly enjoyed Pam's speech on the subject of human deception: She was engaging, welcoming and interesting, and her tales about the level of training she received in the "art" of deception (and in detecting it) were absolutely fascinating.
I couldn't wait to get home to read Liespotting after the discussion, and it did not disappoint. As I expected Ms. Meyer discussed the nature of why we lie and how she learned to detect it, but the book itself broke down how a regular person, like me, can apply the techniques to every day life. What a guide! I am so grateful to have received an inside look into this science I knew nothing about.
