From the Publisher


People--friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople--lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day.

Now there's something we can do about it. Pamela Meyer's Liespotting links three disciplines--facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field--into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions.

Some of the nation's leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations. Liespotting for the first time brings years of knowledge--previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities--into the corporate boardroom, the manager's meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding, and the deal negotiation.


Learn communication secrets previously known only to a handful of scientists, interrogators and intelligence specialists.

Liespotting reveals what's hiding in plain sight in every business meeting, job interview and negotiation:

- The single most dangerous facial expression to watch out for in business & personal relationships

- 10 questions that get people to tell you anything

- A simple 5-step method for spotting and stopping the lies told in nearly every high-stakes business negotiation and interview

- Dozens of postures and facial expressions that should instantly put you on Red Alert for deception

- The telltale phrases and verbal responses that separate truthful stories from deceitful ones

- How to create a circle of advisers who will guarantee your success

Everybody Lies, And That's Not Always A Bad Thing

When we think about dishonesty, we mostly think about the big stuff. We see big scandals, big lies, and we think to ourselves, I could never do that. We think we're fundamentally different from Bernie Madoff or Tiger Woods. But behind big lies are a series of small deceptions. Dan Ariely, a professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University, writes about this in his book The Honest Truth about Dishonesty. "One of the frightening conclusions we have is that what separates honest people from not-honest people is not necessarily character, it's opportunity," he said. These small

Why Some Apps Use Fake Progress Bars

In a fit of productivity, I did my taxes early this year. They were a bit more complex than usual, so I set aside some time to click through TurboTax and make sure I got everything right. Throughout the process, the online tax-preparation program repeatedly reassured me that it had helped me identify every possible tax deduction I qualify for, and made sure I didn’t make any mistakes. Attractively animated progress bars filled up while I waited for TurboTax to double- and triple-check my returns. But as I watched one particularly slick animation, which showed a virtual tax form lighting up lin

Pizzagate Truthers Rallied In Washington DC For The Very Fake Conspiracy Theory

Pizzagate, a conspiracy theory that alleges leaders of the Democratic Party — including Hillary Clinton — are running a child-sex-slavery ring out of the basement of a Washington D.C. pizzeria, has been debunked time and time again.  That, however, didn't stop a group of believers from convening in D.C., rallying for awareness of the very fake story. Reporters from The Hill took photos and tweeted out brief interviews with the scattered protesters who set up a stage near the White House. Families in matching shirts stood alongside scattered protesters in Guy Fawkes masks. Attendees came to D.C
