Summary

Lena wrote You're Lying! because no matter what your profession or life circumstances, you need the skills to take control of a situation, detect deception, and reveal the truth. While you probably won't ever have to interrogate a detainee who doesn't want to tell you about an upcoming terrorist attack - as Lena has - You're Lying! will help you deal with that salesperson trying to rip you off, the kid bullying your child who claims innocence, a cheating spouse, or a dissembling boss. As the adage says, knowledge is power.

Lena interrogated numerous members of Al Qaeda and the Taliban while stationed at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, then taught those skills to Defense Department personnel for years afterward. Her ability to build rapport, accurately read body language, and employ effective questioning techniques led to numerous successes that saved American lives. You will also learn her easy-to-follow five-step program on how to accurately detect verbal (both spoken and written) and nonverbal deceptive tells, how to conduct an effective line of questioning, and what to do after you identify the lies we all face every day. Take the knowledge in You're Lying! and empower yourself.

Ended Up Being Useful

About halfway through the book, I was considering returning it. The author spent way too much time previewing upcoming chapters. Stop telling us how great and life changing the following chapters will be.
My second gripe was that there was no PDF included. This was inexcusable as the author referred to it quite a bit in the early chapters.

That said, I did really enjoy the 2nd half of the book. It was very interesting and I learned a lot.

In total, it was half a very good book.

Pretty Good

This book is a good start for new investigators to grasp the basics interviewing subjects. I think the author should have elaborated more on how to question and look for deceptions rather then sugar coat examples. However,
An ex interrogator won’t spill all the secrets!

Great book!

This book was very straightforward, providing a lot of useful information on detecting deception. I wish the methods provided for "extracting the truth" contained more examples relevant to/ tailored for questioning a significant other or spouse rather than interrogating a witness or criminal. While I wouldn't want to deviate from the overall guidelines, techniques, & insight provided in this book, I do have a hard time believing any spouse would be willing to sit through such extensive questioning should the need arise.
However, I am still eager to implement what I've learned through reading this.

The book is very interesting but I can sum it up in a paragraph

The book talks about psychology lies and the counterintelligence it talks about ways you can detect a lie and also why people lie it goes over the details on what would happen if a bunch of miscreants read this book and all of a sudden can lie the book talks about how it is impossible to lie without showing deception and even a well trained agent cannot lie well it talks about lie detectors and how you cannot be a human lie detector it talks about how you can only at best detect a lie 90% of the time and you cannot be completely accurate the book helped me by teaching me how and why people lie I have also learned how to properly interrogate people without them shutting down I learned what questions to ask and when to ask them I also learned a little about the human brain I learned that in order to lie properly people make the lies a half truth and train the subconscious brain to think what they are telling is in fact a truth


Overall this book was one of the best books about lies that I have ever read I recommend that you read this because it has lots of fun informative information
that you can apply to you’re everyday life

Too republican

Every reference made in this book is about a Democrat politician. Like republicans aren’t doing worst. After a while you’ll even say I get it you don’t like Democrats dam woman. But the info was ok
