Format: Paperback
This is a comprehensive, balanced and up to date review of research on detecting deception, written by a world leading researcher. It is well written and should appeal to a general educated readership as well as researchers and practitoners. The book should not be mistaken for one of the many airport-shop self-help guides which this field seems to be infested with. Read one of them and you will merely add misinformation and noise to your understanding (e.g., the concept of using body language to 'read' peoples' intentions is generally speaking nonsense), whereas this book will give you usable information both about the pitfalls of detecting deception (people, including law enforcement personnel, are much worse at it than they believe) and the promise of approaches that do seem to improve the reliability of lie detection.

I recently purchased Aldert Vrij's book for a friend's birthday gift. As a forensic psychology student, I already own a copy of Vrij's work, and have read it many times. The book is extremely interesting; the finer details have greatly improved my studies, however it is captivating in a way that I can casually read it on a day out at the beach etc.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in forensic psychology or lie detection. It is suitable for anyone; not just academics or scholars, and I really enjoyed this book.
Buy it!

An accessible read for an academic work, he de-bunks some of the myths about lie detectors and the abilities of our law enforcement agencies to sniff out the porkies! If you want to know just how much deception is floating around out there and how to better detect it better than our law enforcers, this is the one!
