    Learn to tell when someone is lying

    While reading this book I thought of a dear friend of mine who has difficulty telling when someone is lying to her. Because of this she is always losing money and being taken advantage of. I could hardly wait to finish the book so that I could share some ideas with her. Some of what I learned in the book “Liar Detector” were things I already knew and a few I hadn’t thought of. I was glad for the reminder that a great way to tell if a person is lying when you are face to face with them is to look for the visual and auditory cues such as body language and tone of voice that indicate they are lying. I also liked how the book gives you 5 strategies (i.e. investigate the issue) for detecting a lie and 8 more strategies (i.e. Adopt sincere demeanor and never accuse) on how to get to the truth and in the process get the liar to admit to the lie. These will come in handy when I talk to my friend. I am going to recommend that she purchase this book.

    A good book about spotting and dealing with liars

    I decided to read Liar Detector as I like to make sure people are being honest with me. I like to make sure those I'm friends with, either as my boyfriend or friend, are good people. It's sad but I can't trust everyone I meet. So picking up a book that talks not only how to spot a liar but how to get them to say the truth was wonderful. I was not disappointed after reading it which was even better. The book talks about why people lie. Being someone on social media, I can very well understand the need for attention. I've sometimes felt that the only people that truly appreciate me are those I meet online, which is a very dangerous thing to think. It makes you do anything to stay in your chosen group which isn't safe. There are also some people that just like the act of lying. The only time I disagree with the reasons people lie, as described in the book, is when job interviews are mentioned. You can't say you've hated working with someone or you don't like working in groups and expect to get a job. I personally wouldn't have included job interviews in this section. The tips on spotting a liar are accurate. Especially the physical signs. I have heard the same things from other books and one video game. It is interesting that people will show different signs of lying depending on if they are left or right handed. The fact that people make little gestures without realizing they're doing them is interesting. Before this book I would have never thought of looking at how fast or slow someone blinks. I know if someone blinks too much it's annoying, but never connected it to lying before. People being too still being a sign of lying makes sense. Liars are afraid that they will be found out. They are afraid that you'll notice and then all their 'fun' is gone. I know when I'm trying to lie I'll get more than a little nervous. I don't do big lies but I do like to get out of situations. Such as lying about why I won't hang out with someone. The book points out that liars will have stories that just don't add up. They make elaborate stories and can't tell the same one twice. It's really easy to spot those people. And then they sometimes provide more details than needed. I am grateful that this book tackled liars online. This is important as social media is on the rise and problems there need to be dealt with. It's a place where liars, and worse, can hide. So it's good to figure out this new venue for people. One of the ways this book says to find liars online is to look at the status updates. Nowadays people give too much away which means spotting a lie is easy at times. Finally the book talks about how you should confront a liar. It isn't enough that you know they're lying, after all. I like that there is focus on gathering evidence as well as how to tell the person you know they're lying. All in all Liar Detector is a good read. It refreshed me about some things while warning me about things I had never thought about before.

    Great ideas on how to catch a liar in action

    Being in a relationship has it's ups and downs as we all know and sometimes, things aren't so easy. We don't always receive the full truth when we want and deserve it. I purchased this book because I believed that the truth was not being told and this thanks to this book, I now know what to look for when someone is not telling you the whole truth. This book has provided some very useful, surprising and interesting tips on how to know if someone is lying to you. I never knew that you could detect a lie by someone's eye or arm movements or even by the way they turn their heads! It also provides tips on how to detect liars for police and FBI agents. I would highly recommend this book to everyone because we are all subjected to liars everyday in our lives.
