Teaching and espousing techniques such as reading body language, deliberate trust techniques, neuro-lingustic programming, confusing statements, counter-lies and other methods I would imagine that would seen more often on CSI and CIA than in business or a relationship, the book will arm the reader with many tips, tricks and techniques for uncovering the liar.
The one challenge the book leaves for the reader to figure out, however, is what to do when the truth comes out. Many of the techniques have a definite deceptive approach that, once exercised, will likely poison the well of any future relationship with the subject - whether the subject is lying or not.
An interesting book with lots of valuable insights, just be judicous with the application of the techniques.
The title of the book should really be called "How to Lie Better". Lieberman states if you want to find out if your secretary has been leaving early you should pretend, rather assume that she is and then tell her that you know what she's done and that it's okay. To me this highlights the obvious flaw of the book and that is judge of character and proper screening is far superior at determining whether or not a person is likely to be a liar. Sadly Lieberman doesn't divulge this little secret. If people could learn to screen others more accurately there would hardly be a need for this book (not saying that people would stop lying, it'll just make it less likely).
And that's where the boundary of integrity and common sense comes into play. If you don't care about integrity or lack common sense you will undoubtedly choose similar type of people into your life. This book merely masks the problem in a game of who lies better. Learning initially to screen people better will eradicate 99% of the problems outlined in the book.
I actually learned something fresh from this book and I was made more aware of my own behaviors. Yes, you’ll learn how to detect if someone is lying, BUT, the book is really more than that. It illustrates so much of the “dynamics” part of interpersonal communication and how we can manage the impressions we create.
I recommend this book to so many of my clients.
First of all I read it from cover to cover in maybe 20 mintues, its a quick read because it has different sections from the beginning, reading someones body language, to after you found the lie and how to confront the other person or deal with the matter at hand. The book has quick heading and then more detailed descriptions below and it really lures you in to keep going and going.
As one reader mentioned, a lot of it is instinctual but you'd be surprised how many times you were in the same situation but couldn't recognize it or deal with it as easily as the author outlines. A lot of time we know someone is lying but we cant quite prove it, even to ourselves and this book lets you pick up on those little things and read into them more.
You'll be amazed how you can relate to the book, I'm sure the things outlined in this book have happened to all of us at one point or another but reading about the meanings and the signs and the approach is another thing all together.
Great for relationships with family, siblings, parents, spouces and boy/girlfriends to work and dealing with people on a daily basis.
