It's very informative but jesus there's a lot of nonsense in there. I wouldn't really recommend it because it doesn't teach what you want. Most likely you are interested in people and how they think and how certain behaviours lead to certain actions and what they're thinking. This book doesn't help with that. It doesn't even teach how to spot a lie very well. It teaches about how easy or difficult it is to catch lies not how to spot them. In some situations people may be feeling a certain way thus are more vulnerable to slips however, unless you are studying lies I wouldn't recommend this as body language reading help.
Interesting book but one that essentially debunks 99% of the lie detection techniques in use today. So much so that it leads you to believe that there is nothing that works reliably at the moment. Which then negates my reasoning for buying the book.
.. because there is no easy way to tell when someone's telling a lie. The book takes us (with scientific rigour) along the excitement of (partial) discoveries, summarizes by types of clues we may have (verbal, gestual), states restrictions (no reason to get a clue if nothing is at stake for the liar) and concludes that there is no surefire way to catch a lie. Seems that le Carre was right in The Perfect Spy (non verbatim quote): 'he discovered that the way to lie uncaught is to forget everything except the ground he's standing on.' A valuable book for someone making further studies, but for the rest of us this could have been told in half the length.
Ekman is the master when it comes to Lie Spotting and Truth Telling - but this is not light reading. Very academic - and dense reading. If you are interested in this topic, best to find other resources that have distilled the info down to bite size pieces - for example, find interviews he's done or articles citing this book. Of course, if you're writing a paper - you'll want this book as a primary source - but would not advise for the average, curious reader.
Without a doubt Dr. Ekman's work is intriguing and valuable. A student of behavioral and social science would find this work a catalyst for further study or a required read for current coursework. For the lie catching buff, as I describe myself, however, the many chapters of "how" may be less valuable than the "what." So, for my purpose, catching that boat dealer stumbling over his explanation of charges, how the research was done was not helpful for me. What a person does during deceit has been thoroughly highlighted in my copy which I will keep for a long time - no lie.
I ordered this book for my husband because he is a huge fan of the TV show Lie To Me and is interested in learning about micro expressions. He picks the book up and down as he wants to read it but it's hard for him to understand. It's definately written for someone who is keen to the lingo and terminology and not for an ameteur enthusiast as it's very difficult to understand, no laymans terms here at all so you will need to buy a dictionary to go along with this book unless you are already a professional in this line of work, then you will understand it. It gets off on subjects also that can become dull and cause you to loose interest if you are looking to find information on microexpression and not interested in story lines integrated into the mix. We have a few other microexpression books that have been suggested to us and I think I am going to just tell him to put this one down and we will try another :) Loads of information in this book if you can comprehend it!
The book is a bit drier than I expected and very hard to read. That is my fault--since I normally read non-fiction. So it's going to take a concerted effort on my part to sit down and actually read beyond the first chapter to see if I can get into it.
It's okay, Firstly, on a monochrome Kindle, the images are next to worthless. As for the content, it is a reasonable introduction to Ekman's work. I find that it is missing a grid or hierarchy of feelings, expressions, and leaks that would be most helpful in learning. It's worth a read, but you will have to go through much more training to even start catching liars.
