People—friends, family members, colleagues, salespeople—lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. Now we can do something about it. Liespotting links three disciplines—facial recognition training, interrogation training and a comprehensive survey of research in the field— into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions. Some of the nation’s leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations.
Pamela Meyer is founder and CEO of Simpatico Networks, a leading private label social networking company that owns and operates online social networks. She holds an MBA from Harvard, an MA in Public Policy from Claremont Graduate School, and is a Certified Fraud Examiner. She has extensive training in advanced interviewing and interrogation techniques, facial micro-expression reading, body language interpretation, statement analysis, and behavior elicitation techniques. For the book Liespotting, she worked with a team of researchers over several years and completed a comprehensive survey of all of the published research on deception detection. The most interesting highlights from the research survey are included in the book, while additional new findings are regularly featured on her blog, www.Liespotting.com
Liespotting is the first book to bring years of knowledge— previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities—into the corporate boardroom, the manager’s meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding, the deal negotiation, and everyday transactions.
