Stu Dunn is New Zealands leading expert in micro expressions, emotional surveillance and FACS, and after reading True Lies it is easy to see why.
Written for a varied audience from expert to complete beginner it is an easy, enjoyable read, which even gives the reader chance to test their new found knowledge with suggested exercises to do at the end.
The personal stories and family photographs allows the reader into Stu's world and really helps to put the words into perspective.
A must read for any novice lie to me fans with aspirations of becoming the next lightman.

I haven't quite got to the end of this yet.
But I like the idea of knowing what people are (or may be thinking by their facial language).
It's not so easy to describe well in a book, but this book does a fairly decent job of it.
It also points you to videos/training courses etc. where you can pursue the subject further if you wish.

Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.

So I've eventually got around to reading this book...and I can't put it down when I go to bed at night. It's already a bit dog-eared from going back and forth (and it looked so neat and shiny on my book shelf). Congratulations to Stu Dunn on a superb piece of writing. So easy to read/digest and start putting into practice almost immediately. I've even learnt something about some micro-expressions I'd picked up with a particular someone before but obviously read wrong...this book has put me straight. Making the world a more interesting place yet again. Well done and thank you Mr Dunn!

I may have missed something because I just couldn't finish this book, but it appears the author is not the expert, but spent time with KGB expert. Now had the KGB fellow actually written the book, I think there may have been much more to it. As it was, it was a lot of fluff, and a limited amount of information that one could pick up from a myriad of sources. Having studied basic psychology, I found nothing new. It isn't a horrible book, but it wasn't for me. I think photographs of the various expressions would have been helpful as well, but this only has descriptions.

Unless I am horribly mistaken, this is a self-published title and I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that such items should come with a health-warning.
I have absolutely no doubt that Mr Dunn is an expert in his field; however, just as knowledge and the ability to teach do not necessarily go hand in hand, so I remain unconvinced, having battled through this book, that Mr Dunn is qualified as a writer. My humble opinion.
Given the title, the information you would expect to find in a book of this nature is pretty much all in there - it's just that you have to wade through a considerable amount of banal repetition, pointless digressions and, frankly, a lot of what I felt was irrelevant material. Did I miss the point? What was the purpose of a 'Did You Know' section about the origin of neck ties between a paragraph entitled 'Why Learn How To Detect Lies' and another entitled 'Common Terminology'? Equally curious is the inclusion of Mr Dunn's views on what make someone happy, what to do about it if you aren't happy and the fact that a stereotypical rich girl screaming at her parents for not getting her the right coloured car frustrates him, when there are African kids using squashed plastic bottles as shoes and playing with rocks in the dirt... A lot of the 'Did You Know' I did know, because he had said it before, and a lot of the so-called 'Tips' were just patronising repeats of points made in the preceding paragraphs. If you have read this far in my review, I feel sure you will be coming to the correct conclusion that the more of this book I read, the more it began to irritate me. Further, I have to add that, for me, the lay out/formatting in the Kindle Edition was shocking and I was left wondering if the text had received any attention from a professional editor.
