Review

[A] wealth of detailed, practical information about lying and lie detection and a penetrating analysis of the ethical implications.--Jerome D. Frank, The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

From breaking the law to breaking a promise, how do people lie and how can they be caught?

In this revised edition, Paul Ekman, a renowned expert in emotions research and nonverbal communication, adds a new chapter to present his latest research on his groundbreaking inquiry into lying and the methods for uncovering lies. Ekman has figured out the most important behavioral clues to deceit; he has developed a one-hour self-instructional program that trains people to observe and understand micro expressions; and he has done research that identifies the facial expressions that show whether someone is likely to become violent a self-instructional program to train recognition of these dangerous signals has also been developed.

Telling Lies describes how lies vary in form and how they can differ from other types of misinformation that can reveal untruths. It discusses how a person s body language, voice, and facial expressions can give away a lie but still fool professional lie hunters even judges, police officers, drug enforcement agents, and Secret Service agents.

[A] wealth of detailed, practical information about lying and lie detection and a penetrating analysis of ethical implications. Jerome D. Frank, The John Hopkins School of Medicine --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Paul Ekman (born February 15, 1934) is an American psychologist who is a pioneer in the study of emotions and their relation to facial expressions. He has created an "atlas of emotions" with more than ten thousand facial expressions, and has gained a reputation as "the best human lie detector in the world".

He was ranked 59th out of the 100 most cited psychologists of the twentieth century. Ekman conducted seminal research on the specific biological correlates of specific emotions, demonstrating the universality and discreteness of emotions in a Darwinian approach.
