Book Description

12 Feb 2013
Do you want to know when someone is lying to you? In this book, you will learn both body language and lie detection. In a ten minute conversation you are likely to be lied to two to three times. Learn how to spot those lies. You will learn: *How to read body language *How to be a human lie detector *How to read people *How to detect hidden emotions *How to spot lies This body language book is based on scientifically backed research on the how to read people's nonverbal behavior. Who Is This Book For? Whether you are a business owner, parent, spouse, employee, human resources director, teacher or student, this book will change the way you interact with those around you. Here are all of the people that can benefit from this book on body language: Employers Public speakers Doctors Human Resources Directors Poker Players Actors Students Employees Parents Teachers Entrepreneurs You! If you have ever interacted with another person, this book will be useful to you because our everyday interactions are filled with secret nonverbal cues just waiting to be uncovered. Because this book is based in real science, it will debunk some popular myths about lying. Lying Myth #1: If people look to the left, they are lying. If they look to the right they are telling the truth. Although there is some science about eye direction, which we talk about in the book. It is not the most reliable form of lie detection. The book will show you more accurate (and easier) ways to spot lies. Lying Myth #2: Liars can’t look you in the eyes. On average, honest people will make eye contact during conversations about 60% of the time–way less than you thought, right? Liars actually look you in the eye more because they want to seei f you believe their lie or not. Lying Myth #3: Emails and IM’s are filled with lies because it is easier to lie when people can’t see or hear you. In the book, I will tell you which of the following have the most lies: ___Emails ___IM’s ___Phone conversations ___Face to Face interactions I’ll give you a hint: Shockingly, we lie the MOST in phone conversations and the LEAST in emails. Why Is Lie Detection Important? It is important when we know we are being lied to because it can save us money, time and sometimes even our safety. This book can train you to get to the truth 80% to 90% of the time. That can save you money on a faulty house, from hiring a bad employee or making sure you know what is really going on with your child or significant other. Unfortunately, we are not good at detecting lies. We are only right about 54% of the time! That is a little better than a coin toss. We tend to assume the best in people and have a bias towards truth–”innocent until proven guilty.” In Human Lie Detection and Body Language 101 I give a number of real life examples and tons of practical tips that you will be able to use immediately. For example, wouldn’t it have been great to have known when Lance Armstrong was lying? Lance Armstrong Lies In his recent Oprah interview, Lance Armstrong’s body language was off the charts with lies and inconsistencies. He constantly made the “contempt” microexpression, which you will learn about in the book and showed how he really felt about the interview. He also showed a dominant and aggressive body posture and seating position. His words said far less than in his body. You can learn how to decode these popular culture segments on TV and in real life. If you find this case fascinating and wish you could begin to unravel the mysteries of body language, then get your copy of Human Lie Detection and Body Language 101 now!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a big fan. 30 July 2013
By Scott J. Haas - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to accompany Van Edwards Udemy courses. I have since become a huge fan of her insight and it has even helped me on my job. The actual book has the look and feel of a self published book but the information inside is first rate, never heavy and actually quite entertaining. The author has a public website with ever increasing and relevant topics as well. If you are interested in this subject buy the book and head over to Udemy on the web to check out her two courses. I have read a couple other books on the subject and they were heavy technical boring works. Not so with this book. Very readable and can easily be used as a reference. You'll watch people a lot differently after reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 22 Dec 2013
By Nate - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
stuffed full of information, things that your not even aware that you already know.

The chapters Tie together quite well. the book is in sort of a bullet form, making it very easy to read but because of the massive volume of information, it is a bit difficult to retain the knowledge. to counteract this I would suggest reading just one chapter a day (only takes about 5-10 min) and then during that 24 hours, think about what you read and try to put it to use. and when your done with the book (one week later) start over. I believe that is The best way to get the most out of this book.

I loved this book along with the Udemy course. This really has helped me in reading people. Be careful though, once you have this information, you can't go back. It has been very helpful in making my interactions with others more honest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Your Time 5 Feb 2014
By Ryan Witte - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
That it's a complete waste of your time is the bad part. The only good part is that at least it won't waste MUCH of your time. I got through it in two hour-long sittings, and I'm a slow reader. What of it isn't redundant and easily skipped is irrelevant to the reasons you bought it in the first place. It's laid out so sparsely that there's more blank space on most of the pages than words. What remains is possibly a total of around 20 pages of useful information out of the 98. It's badly written, at one point she actually left her notes in the middle of the text and never went back to follow up and take them out. It's repetitive to say the least. For anyone who has watched an episode or two of Lie to Me and merely watches how people behave once in a while, this book will tell you absolutely nothing you didn't already know or couldn't have figured out just by thinking about it for a minute. The second half of the book is all about what color shirt you should wear to work and has nothing to do with lie detection. There must be far better books on this topic; skip this one.

Pretty good I just wish it had a little more about reading people outside the context of lying and telling the truth
