5.0 out of 5 stars This book has been a life saver!
This book has been a life saver because it helped me to realise the symptoms of a liar, the different types of lies told and why, and how these people get away with lying and the methods they use. I realised that all of the techniques had been used on me. I also realised that the one person the author sayes you should leave and cut all ties with, was the sociopath. I...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but sexist
A great insight into what makes compulsive liar's tick.

However spoilt for me (like so many such books) by the fact that all the victims are female, and all the perpetrators are male. The world is just not like that - there are plenty of female liars, and male victims too.

If you are a male victim of a female liar, I would still recommend this book...

This review is from: When Your Lover is a Liar (Paperback)
This book has been a life saver because it helped me to realise the symptoms of a liar, the different types of lies told and why, and how these people get away with lying and the methods they use. I realised that all of the techniques had been used on me. I also realised that the one person the author sayes you should leave and cut all ties with, was the sociopath. I thought,surely he, my ex couldn't be one of them, and I went to the relevant chapter and the symptoms and techniques used by them were all there, it was him that she was describing an exact match!. I realised after reading this book, which I read all at once I couldn't put it down, that I should stop allowing myself to take all the blame from him for everything, infact I should just leave the relationship and get on with my life. I'm glad I did and I see things much clearer now and am so glad that I read this book. Instead of me thinking or believing I was at fault, because he told me often enough, I realised that he was the one with the problem!, and that he was never going to change.

5.0 out of 5 stars chuck, 30 July 2011
This review is from: When Your Lover is a Liar (Paperback)
I got this book to help me to work out the problems withing our relationship but this book made me feel so aggressive and angry. I think that any one who is considering to buy this book must be ready for serious life changes because after reading it , if you will discover that your lover is actually liar, then it might be impossible to survive in the relationship , unless you wish to live with your liar. This book has so great information how to identify the liar but it will be impossible to change them. So if you think you will be ready to walk away after reading this, then read. But be ready for consequenses....
