3.0 out of 5 stars Basic Stuff - A bit everywhere., November 18, 2012
This review is from: You Can't Lie to Me: The Revolutionary Program to Supercharge Your Inner Lie Detector and Get to the Truth (Hardcover)
Its highly annoying to spend money on something so new and its broken. by broken I mean none of the online stuff she mentioned in the book worked. (Links etc.) The only thing that did work was the audio recaps which I was able to download. Even the scan codes weren't working which I felt was not right and should have had working when she released this book. I paid the full price for this book and for this not to work is not acceptable.

There is a lot of "fluff" in this book. By this I mean there is a lot I didn't need to know. B/W this, the non-working links, and the subliminal sales tactics made me dislike the book. Shes a great sales rep, and shes an excellent talker.

The good material which I bought the book for makes up b/w 30-50% of the book. I would say its excellent material when shes going into it. She brings to light things I never thought about and made me realize the things I always knew naturally.

One has to remember that all the really really good stuff is classified. I don't know how close to the edge she brought us with this book. I think the book is good for people interested in the subject, esp investigators and cops. It was really hard for me to decide b/w like and don't like, but I will give it to her since I can use the material. I would probably not buy another book from her however.

I completely agree with you !!!
I thought the exact same when I read her book.
Talking about all the author was going to was about 30% self-promotion throughout the entire book. You said her subliminal sales tactics, gets me thinking differently about the author. It must come very easy to janine Driver to lie to others...
I found Joe Navarro's book "what every body is saying"was much better. Because
I'm in law-enforcement

"Self-promotion" is a better way to put it. \
