An incite to Lies, Deception, in the MarketPlace, Politics and Relationships

This book is unique because it gives the reader concepts, thought process, tips, reading body language to aid in the perception of who may be lying or deceiving the reader in the Marketplace, Politics, and in Relationships of any kind. Bought it new and would recommend. Stuart. 02/08/2010

Here's Where You Start

Ekman's book on Telling Lies is not only the source of much of the real science you can see on the hit Fox show "Lie to Me" but it is the best place to start learning about the science of deception detection. This is not body language, this is not "Blink" type decision making, it's a scientific approach to the universality of human facial expression. Well written with an extremely useful appendix that features a check list that needs to be reviewed whenever you intend to use the system to detect a lie. Highly recommended.

Telling Lies, Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

This work by Paul Ekman is absolutely fascinating. It is amazing that more than 65% of human communication occurs without speaking a word!!! Although Mr. Ekman writes in a detail oriented manner, the information he provides is astounding. I have very much enjoyed this book and will certainly purchase more works by Mr. Ekman and others that have more information on this spellbinding subject!! Bravo!!

A fantastic, innovative and thought provoking book.

Paul Ekman dives deep within the recesses of the human psyche to uncover the truth and meaning behind lying. He witfully draws parallels between what lying is, and how one can detect it. Ekman engages in thought-provoking arguements and ideas about why people lie, and the neurosis that lying truly is and possible ways to treat it. This is a fantastic view that casts doubt upon those who deem themselves "honest."
