This review is from: How to Stop Lying: The Ultimate Cure Guide for Pathological Liars and Compulsive Liars (Pathological Lying Disorder, Compulsive Lying Disorder, ASPD, Antisocial ... Disorder, Psychopathy, Sociopathy) (Kindle Edition)
`How To Stop Lying" is a rather intriguing read. It was the subtitle that said "The ultimate cure for pathological liars and compulsive liars" that really reeled me in from the beginning, as I'm currently taking a course in pastoral care and counseling. This counseling course has thus sparked my interest in all sorts of issues that people come up against and the different ways to go around solving them, so although I myself don't (or at least I don't think I do) have a problem with lying, I wanted to read this book for interest's sake.

So read it I did! The book in itself is short and snappy - perfect for reading in one go on a train journey or a lunch break but it manages to get the balance right between detail and being concise, which was fab.

The chapters span a lot of good things including definitions of what pathological lying is, symptoms and ways to help it. My personal favourite was the chapter all about why we lie, and it outlined the 5 main situations in which people do so - it was quite interesting when I realised that I could identify with each point to a more or lesser extent. I think it has also meant that when people lie in the future instead of getting upset or angry that I can try to see where they're coming from and be a little bit more understanding.

Again, from the `student studying counseling' perspective I found it really cool to see different techniques discussed that would help someone overcome a lying problem. Overall, I thought this book was fantastic and simple to read and I think it would be great not only for people who have trouble with lying but for people who know someone who has an issue with it or just for plain old interest. In fact, I would say it probably appeals and works better for the latter two! My only dissatisfaction with the book was the lack of author on the cover page - but I guess that's just me nitpicking eh?
