Описание

Three former CIA officers-among the world's foremost authorities on recognizing deceptive behavior—share their proven techniques for uncovering a lie.

Imagine how different your life would be if you could tell whether someone was lying or telling you the truth. Be it hiring a new employee, investing in a financial interest, speaking with your child about drugs, confronting your significant other about suspected infidelity, or even dating someone new, having the ability to unmask a lie can have far-reaching and even life-altering consequences.

As former CIA officers, Philip Houston, Michael Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the world's best at recognizing deceptive behavior. Spy the Lie chronicles the captivating story of how they used a methodology Houston developed to detect deception in the counterterrorism and criminal investigation realms, and shows how these techniques can be applied in our daily lives.

Through fascinating anecdotes from their intelligence careers, the authors teach readers how to recognize deceptive behaviors, both verbal and nonverbal, that we all tend to display when we respond to questions untruthfully. For the first time, they share with the general public their methodology and their secrets to the art of asking questions that elicit the truth.

Spy the Lie is a game-changer. You may never read another book that has a more dramatic impact on your career, your relationships, or your future.

    This is an interesting book that provides some very clear instructions for determining whether or not someone is telling the truth. The book was put together using the knowledge of three CIA personnel who have been involved in interrogations and in training interrogators over many years. These former CIA employees are now selling their training to various agencies, including the CIA.It would be easy to dismiss this book as a marketing gimmick, but it does contain useful information on the subject and is an easy read. For quick reference purposes some of the key points are summarised in the margins of the book.Other useful content is the debunking of received knowledge about how to tell if someone is lying, e.g. eye-contact, touching the face, etc. These are not totally dismissed, but they are demonstrated not to be fool-proof indicators and that they cannot be taken in isolation.One interesting aspect of the book is the wording used when the indicators indicate an untruth: the phrase used throughout this book is "that subject warrants further attention". I interpret this as their defence against law suits for over promising. Had they said "this indicates the subject is lying" they could leave themselves open to legal challenge in some situations.All-in-all a worthwhile read and I will be using it as a reference book.

    Short book with some good information about how to detect when people are lying. Would take a good effort to actually apply it in real life but seemed like a fairly solid theory of detection. I expected more information - it really is just a technique with some additional "watch points" as you understand the technique more. However, a lot of "hindsight' was used; that is, the theory is proven anecdotely (in the book at least) and makes you wonder about the times that it didn't work.

    former cia officers lecture on how to "spy the lie". that is, how to detect deception in others. i found the writing and tone overly simplistic and borders on the irritating-slash-mind-numbing in some parts...but the topic is inherently interesting to me and was enough to drive me to speed read the book. besides, i ultimately found what the authors are talking about to be pragmatic and offers an insight into human behavior not discussed in the same way any where else (to my knowledge).memorable quote: "Don't ask the question unless you're sure you really want to know the answer."

    What a fascinating book! I highly recommend this book. You learn how to spot deception (when you're looking for it) and the methodology works even if you're very well versed in spotting deception but trying to deceive someone. "Our methodology for detecting deception is structured around the way we're wired as human beings to respond to a stimulus." (page 192) A one sentence summary and what made the book so fascinating to read.

    Using lessons learned from working polygraphs and CIA methods, gives an overview of how to spot inconsistent words and behaviors and a process for uncovering the truth.

    Great book on how to approach asking questions to extract valuable information.

    I bought this book for two reasons:1) As an author whose primary characters often belong to some form of law enforcement organization, I thought this book might be a good reference in terms of writing more realistic investigative processes2) I personally have always been fascinated by anything involving human behavior and like to learn new ways to read people.This book was an interesting read; it used real-world examples and the authors’ own experiences to teach concepts, and there was just enough wit and dry humor to really keep me engaged.The only thing that bothered me was that some of the “deceptive behaviors” are things that I – someone with a fairly high degree of social anxiety – do on a regular basis if I’m nervous while interacting with people. I didn’t kill anyone, I swear!All in all, it was a great read. The authors use plain language that makes somewhat tricky material easy for anyone to understand, and the concepts we learn can be applied to any aspect of life.

    Slight but entertaining book about how to catch people out by asking nonjudgmental, focused questions, and identifying specific verbal/nonverbal behaviors as indicating a need for further investigation (e.g., a lot of weasel words, distraction claims about the person’s general character in response to a question about a specific matter, jiggling feet, etc.). They aren’t fans of microexpressions or of giving much weight to lack of eye contact, and several times emphasize the importance of understanding the interviewee’s culture, because some behaviors are simply different across cultures.

    Six-word review: Experts reveal how they expose lies.Extended review:• Cultivate the ability to look and listen at the same time.• Watch for clusters of deceptive behaviors and not just single instances.• Learn to ignore truthful behavior.• Be alert to nonanswers and avoidance of response to direct questions.• Notice stalling tactics.• Recognize attacks on the questioner for what they are.These are but a sampling of techniques that the authors have incorporated into the model they teach in investigative settings from law enforcement to corporate security. The authors explain why each aspect of the model is used and how to apply it. The model is not intended to prove that the person being questioned is lying, but it sure does point to people and topics that warrant further attention. This book is a fast, easy read that I found remarkably educational. In fact, I'd consider it worth a second read, since once I know what's coming I think I may find it easier to absorb and retain information the second time around.I'm not involved in any kind of investigative activity and rarely have the need to question anyone in a situation where deception is a concern. Yet I found my awareness of deceptive behavior multiplied by some significant amount. As it happened, I finished the book yesterday, and today on NPR I heard a segment of an IRS official's hearing before the Senate in the matter of targeting conservative groups seeking tax exemptions. I almost laughed out loud to hear this person giving responses and evasions that could have come straight out of this book. Interestingly, the authors anticipate and answer the charge that knowledge of their techniques will teach people to become better liars. The behaviors they've learned to spot, they say, operate on an unconscious and involuntary level and are very difficult to suppress, especially because the level of concentration that would take is pretty hard to sustain while you're also preoccupied with perpetrating plausible falsehoods. Even if you could manage some of them, others would give you away.Remember, they don't regard any of the telltale signs as proof of deception but only as an indicator of where more attention is needed.Even if all I've learned is how to hear politicians differently, I'll consider this a worthwhile read.
