The Truth About Lying:
How to Spot a Lie and Protect Yourself from Deception

The Truth About Lying offers strategies to the average person for learning how to spot a liar and how to get to the truth. It discusses the verbal and physical cues that normally accompany a lie. It also offers tips about deciphering inconsistencies in a person's behavior, the five reaction behaviors that can mask deception, and more.

Communication skills can make a big difference in whether people tell you the truth or not. Knowing when to ask the next question, the behaviors that signal when the whole story isn't being told and what questions to ask can help you cut through deception and lying so you can have confidence in your communications.

Based on the same methods used by law enforcement professionals, but appropriate for everyday interactions, these skills and techniques can be applied in almost every situation:

  • hiring a nanny or household worker
  • working with an employee
  • negotiating with a salesperson or service provider
  • dealing with a teenager
  • communicating in a romantic relationship

Walters' strategies will improve relationships and communication by teaching how to spot a liar and, more importantly, how to get to the truth.

SourceBooks, Inc. has just announced a fourth printing of Stan's popular book, The Truth About Lying. The book, already published in English, German, Slovene and Chinese will be available in Portuguese!
