This is a fantastic book.,
This review is from: Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics and Marriage (Paperback)
This is one of the better books about this kind of thing; unlike the ridiculous garbage spouted by people such as David J Lieberman, whose books are rolled off the production line and based on nothing more than a desire to steal your money and not a shred of genuine expertise.
Paul Ekman is certainly an expert in his field, and this book demonstrates that expertise.
There are no stupid claims about never being lied to again, no sensational ability on offer to you if you buy this book, just a balanced, well written study of why people lie, and ways that you can learn to spot the signs of that lying.
The whole book is extremely informative, and its author's views are carefully explained to the reader without being un-necessarily academic, although the style and feel of the writing still possesses the authority you would expect from a world leader in this particular branch of Psychology.
An excellent piece of work.
