There are also lists of various factors that might motivate people to lie, and of course there are numerous strategies to reveal liars. My feelings on these issues are that in relationships involving people close to you, the most important thing is skilled communication, which in itself will lead toward honesty. In fact, when good communication is properly established, lying becomes a lot less likely to be an issue. This book may help achieve honesty and trust, but there are times when the feel is a little heavy handed, possibly encouraging people to interrogate where more skilled communication would be more appropriate. I feel that we need to exercise some caution. Playing mind games inside a relationship creates distance between those involved - paradoxically making people NEED to tell fibs, and, ironically, these people resent having to tell these little lies. David Lieberman, in his book, stresses the importance of respect in relationships (explaining exactly why), and this importance is not so stressed here. In defence of the author, he does say that honest relationships are best, but the feel of the writing is still just a little bit interrogatory. This is only my opinion, and, of course, the book is about discovering liars, NOT about relationships!Read more ›
