The information provided mixes military, government and intelligence agencies’ interrogation techniques, scientific and academic data mixed with body language and micro-facial recognition to create what Meyer calls the BASIC method, a guide to lie-proof conversations, negotiations, and interviews. The book is structured in two parts. The first contains the basic techniques to detect deception trough verbal and non-verbal clues.

To me, as a non-business person, this is the most useful and entertaining part of the book, and truly packed with useful information that will make you aware of deceptive behaviours. The second part is about creating healthy behaviour environment in the workplace by implementing structures and polices that promote honesty and trustworthiness, and effortlessly weed out deception, liars and double-faced people who play everybody to get power or money.

This is liespotying much business related. If you are a the head of a pamsla, business, or corporation, you will find the strategies, advice and polices recommended in the book fantastic, sane and sound, it that can be said.

Specially good are the items of advice on business negotiation and liesspotting interviews, which are two of pamels main areas where deception occurs.

Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception: Pamela Meyer: : Books

Appendix I is a sort of cheat-sheet about the main points presented in the first part of the book. I meyyer love it because it is useful and straight to the point. This is the core of the book in a nutshell. Appendix II is pamelw test to check if our lie spotting skills are tuned; the solution to the questions are in the author’s book website The book is very good, well written, and clear to understand.

Meyer is a very articulate writer and does a great job at conveying her message in away that is entertaining, informative and seriously usable, with plenty of specific information about how to spot deception, and how to liespottinh with it. Liespotting tips that are spread throughout the book as short reminders of important points to remember, therefore, very helpful.

Besides, photos are included to exemplify facial authentic and fake expressions; nothing like a photo to explain this sort of information. There are many real-life examples described in the book, but I thought they were pmaela.

Some of the questions posed and answered are: A person occasionally using substances would have their pupils dilated, no?

Does liesporting automatically turn them into deceptive people at the workplace? Kindle edition The kindle edition is well done, with liezpotting hyper-linked back and forward. However, one of the links in the book does not work, the one directing to Artanatomy, however the site is still up just with another URL.

I’m passionate about human behavior and this book was a neutral read, because I believe that the author targeted the wrong audience. This book is targeted towards corporate people who don’t have any understanding or prior knowledge of human behavior and favors many subjective stories as evidence over the scientific data sources.

Brace yourself for the obligatory corporate stories and business-scam scenarios, as they seem like the main liwspotting when it comes to liars. The useful tips start in the middle of the book and only last a few pages, so feel free to skip the fluff and get to the meat and potatoes of deception leaks.


The book works great for lavatory reading and should be placed on the tank lid for easy access. I thought this book was a very good read and also informative. I think this book and the “Sociopath Next Door” should be read at an early age to help you in dealing with people. The world is full of people who lie, cheat and steal. If we can learn the traits of these people then we can learn to stay clear of them.

The TV show “Lie to Me” is what really got me interested in this subject. It covers these and much more. You will gain knowledge that you can start using right away. The last chapter is called “Putting it all together”. I look at people’s eyes and watch their body language a whole lot more now when they are talking. There is a lot to learn about lies and this book is a great place to start.

One person found this helpful. I bought the book on the basis of the author’s TED talk, which I loved. However, the book is a disappointment. The actual “liespotting” information is good, and very readable, but there’s not enough of it. Then there is the filler that goes on and on.

The filler material takes two forms: This is not of much interest in a book that presents itself as a how-to on discovering lies in personal interactionsand 2 stretching out the actual liespotting material with tiresome justifications telling you why it’s a good thing to be able to spot lies. Telling me liesppotting is fine; telling me over and over is filler. The photos were a good idea.

I would have liked to see more of them, though, and more subtle ones, as well. Whoever was editing this book must have been forcing the author to make it longer, rather than doing the better job of tightening it up and keeping the focus where it belongs. Good idea, good kernel of information, but poor pzmela.

It claims to teach you how to spot lies using body language but after reading it I suspect it’s the kind of skill you need to take a class on, or would be better suited to a video series.

It’s filled with pictures and examples too blatant or ridiculous to be of any real help.

The book isn’t as focused or thorough as it should be. The author is a skilled business woman but not a great author, and is more a book about business management than lie spotting. Not a lot of substance which she attempts to cover up with random facts, and handy ‘lie spotting tips’ sprinkled throughout. Not a great read but won’t take you long to get through.

If you read Malcolm Gladwell, whom the author references early on, you will be underwhelmed with the content. Skip it and just enjoy the TED Talk. See all reviews.
