I had to take one star off though because in the last chapter discussing the handwriting, one example how "you can catch the person to whom lying comes easy" would place me into that category. And I am a terrible liar. I actually feel bad when I try to hold information from someone even if it is something small like a surprise for Xmas. And in my school's play back at the day I found out I had been chosen as the worst actress in that play! I just can't fake it! So you have to use some common sense when you apply the knowledge. But it is still a very useful book. I will never look at our politicians the same way again! And that gives you power!
The ten techniques are:
1. Listen for the word `never'--it is often part of a phony denial.
2. Pay attention to the pronouns--when `I' is not used this shows a lack of commitment to the statement being made.
3. Examine people's "personal dictionary"--not times when they begin to use different terms for the same things. This may indicate a transition between the truthful and untruthful parts of a statement.
4. Observe when the person being questioned does not answer the question being asked but a related one instead. This may indicate deception.
5. Did the person being questioned answer a question with another question? This may also indicate deception.
6. Watch for fingers touching the mouth, a common "tell" for lying.
7. When a person looks to the right while answering, it may be an indication that they are fabricating an answer.
8. Notice if the person being questioned crosses their arms or legs. This is another common "tell."
9. Observe the form of the letter `o' in the person's handwriting. Extra loops inside of the `o' indicate a more secretive person.
10. Watch for the "felon's claw" in the person's handwriting. This is a downward `hook' that appears in the lower case g, y, and z. Also the capitol letters A, G, H, and J.
The book presents a brief and readable discussion of the essentials of the three areas of deception detection it addresses. The discussion of nonverbal cues is consistent with more in-depth treatments such as Phil Houston, Mike Floyd, and Susan Carnicero's Spy the Lie and Paul Ekman's Telling Lies. I am less familiar with statement analysis and handwriting analysis and so cannot comment on how these subjects are treated. The book would be improved if it pointed to research findings in all three of these disciplines.
