    1. I thought this would be an interesting insight into human behaviour - instead, it read like the crassest apologia - sans apology - of torture I've read in quite some time. At one point, to illustrate how he can break someone, a civilian, down, he makes her assume 'stress positions' for several hours. 'Stress positions' were refined by the British Army in the 1970s in Northern Ireland as a method of torture that left no marks, along with other delightful techniques such as white noise (also cited [...]

    2. While the cover of this book purports to tell you how to spot a liar in your neighbourhood or close friends or family, it is really written apparently by a US army interrogator as a manual for other interrogators. It is an interesting topic - I came across this title whilst shelving it after another person's use - but as I read it I began to see my curiosity and the book itself as a little bit distasteful. I'm not interested in arming myself against the lies of those around me really - it just s [...]

    3. I'm still reading this one, so I'll have a better idea of how good it was after I'm done. The author used to work as an interrogator in US Intelligence which included both service in the field and later teaching at SERE. He then applied those skills to a career in corporate America. He does stress that these skills are not to be used in personal relationships, unless you have reason to believe that someone is being deliberately dishonest with you.

    4. Disappointing. The book is first of all icky due to its provenance. The guy who wrote it is a trained military interrogator and the book reads like a guide to interrogating prisoners of war (with all the connotations of torture and suffering that implies)Furthermore it has very little content that would in any way surprise you. People dart their eyes, twitch, and reveal their intentions through a host of unintentional body cues. To get them to talk you need to research your subject, keep them of [...]

    5. In a nutshell:• Decent, but boilerplate information about the neurolinguistics of body language. Could have picked up the same information from any of a range of tomes on NLP.• Gregory Hartley is a right-wing assholed politically illiterate. He recounts how he once said in a job interview that he doesn't discuss his weaknesses, because it's "Communism." No, dipshit, it is not. What you are describing is the type of sociopathic narcissism of a Randian anti-hero.• At least twice, Hartley rec [...]

    6. Listening to on cd. It's just fun. They talk about body language and also touch on using inventories like Myer's Briggs and temperaments to help read people. The author uses his experience as an interrogator in the armed services.

    7. I wasn't aware that How to Spot a Liar was written from the angle of an interrogator, this made the book super interesting. The last chapter teaches how to recognize if someone is trying to manipulate you. Great little read.

    8. This was a very interesting book, but only time will tell what I have learned from it. I admit, in the beginning I was skeptical as most of the examples in the beginning used fictional characters. However, once I got to the meat of the book, I found a lot of very useful tools, the most important being ways of keeping my emotions out of it. If nothing else, just thinking about this book when I'm in an emotional situation might just help me keep myself in check.

    9. I have little doubt this would be an amazing book in the original. I almost never read abridgements, but as this isn't an active area of interest for me now, I knew I wouldn't read the paper version and only an an abridgement is available in audio.This resonated with most things I already know about deception detection, and went a lot further in some areas in a way that presented interesting integrations. Unfortunately, it feels like the shortening was done by taking section heading and then fol [...]

    10. A decent book on the subject of lie detecting and human interrogations. The book does a good job with providing the overview topics while not getting bogged down into too much scientific and sociological details. The main author being an Army interrogator was interesting and I would have enjoyed more examples from his work in the military. The book does falter when it goes into the use of the tactics in love relationships. Also, the items used for business purposes could be seen as those people [...]

    11. This is an excellent and very practical book on identifying liars and catching them in lies. It is co-authored by a former instructor at the Army's Interrogation School. However, it does notA very important concept in the book is the necessity of accurately "baselining" a subject so you can spot the indicators of lying. While the book is thorough, and it helps to have an understanding of personality types, the material is accessible, and well organized. There are also very useful exercises to wo [...]

    12. Maybe, if we all read some stuff like this, we could separate the wheat from the chaffing and hold each other up to higher standards?-Yeah, of course there's more to it than that.Well, it isn't exactly science and it isn't exactly the subject I think most of us are willing to take a serious look at: If we were, terrorist might be more afraid of us than we are of them. I'd be glad to receive discrete messages on the subject, if anyone has read similar insightful material on the subject of decepti [...]

    13. I originally started reading this book in March, but I had to put it down; it informs the reader about observational lie-detection skills used by the CIA and other intelligence agencies. Needless to say it started to creep me out. This isn't just a book, it's a weapon. By studying the methods and techniques in this book, one could use them to manipulate people. I'm in no hurry to become a sociopath, so I needed to put this down. I would like to pick it up again at some point, just to finish it, [...]

    14. I thought he had some good points on how to tell if someone is lying. But I did not like his constant degradation of man kind as if they were one step above monkeys. I found it to be assaulting to man kind to think that. In his line of work he has to dehumanize the people he works on to get the truth out, so I can understand why he included it in the book, but I personally don't agree with the idea that people are essentially animals.

    15. Very disappointing. Some rudimentary techniques are shared with very few interesting facts. Much of the book seems to be written from a viewpoint suggesting that manipulative and psychologically cruel interrogation methods ought to be applied not only in military situations but at home and in the workplace. since the starting premise is so flawed, it's unsurprising the book can make no convincing claims to support it. Distasteful.

    16. This book should be retitled to "How to Use Military Interrogation Techniques Against Your Loved Ones, Friends, Co-Workers and Current/Potential Employer". Not much of the book would be useful in regular life and a lot of it is pretty creepy - like it suggesting to digitally stalk people before confronting them and also trying to draw a comparison between surgically removing something from a human body to removing information from a human. Icky.

    17. This book is written for those who want to know if someone is lying in an interrogation session. While interesting, the techniques given in the book are not the most practical for every day situations/relationships. With that said, I did finish having some good tips, but don't expect it to easily translate into your life.

    18. This book made me more conscious of my actions and the people surrounding me. It has also helped me in understanding new techniques that can develop new methods to deliver a message. The book is more concentrated on the intelligence agency part. However, I think it is indeed a great book!

    19. If anything, very interestingn't think it is a how to exactly for laymen the techniques these people employ would really need to be applied and practiced in trainingbut interesting nonetheless.

    20. OK, this is fun, too. I would never be good at spotting a liar. But you may be good at it, if you know what to look for.

    21. Creates a structure to deal with lies and the people that tell them. If you are in a situation where someone is lying or you suspect they are, a sold book to start with.

    27. I bought the book in Arabic and I didn't really finish it. Maybe only 100 pages and I was bored already.

    29. Interesting, though it wasn't at all what I thought it would be. It's really more about how to read people while interrogating them than it is about lie detection as the title implies.
