Liespotting Proven Techniques to Detect Deception


People lie to us all the time. In fact, according to studies, most of us encounter nearly two hundred lies a day. Now there’s something we can do about it.  

"Liespotting" links three disciplines – facial-recognition training, interrogation training and a comprehensive survey of research in the field – as well as techniques used in the intelligence community, police-training academies and universities. Developed specifically for business leaders, "Liespotting" brings years of knowledge into the corporate boardroom, the manager’s meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding and the deal negotiation. 

Gain access to these communication secrets, and so much more: 

  • The single most dangerous facial expression to watch out for in business relationships
  • Ten questions that get people to tell you anything
  • Five steps to spotting and stopping the lies told in nearly every high-stakes business negotiation and interview
  • How to create a circle of advisers who will guarantee your success
