What if there was an easy way to know when someone is trying to deceive you, would you be interested? Would you like to be a better communicator? Do you want to protect you and your family from shady characters? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this book is for you!
Frank Runles, veteran FBI Special Agent, reveals everything he has learned over a 20-year career spotting liars and exposing cheats using Deceptive Language Analysis.
If you talk to people for a living such as a Human Resources Manager, counselor, coach, negotiator, salesperson, investigator, parent, or anyone in a leadership position, "Lies People Tell" is a must read!
Mr. Runles uses statements from the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin Case, Casey Anthony, Oscar Pistorius, and Susan Smith Case along with statements he collected over the years consulting with law enforcement agencies to show the many ways language is used to mislead and deceive. The author compares how deceptive language used in criminal investigations can be applied to our everyday lives such as interviewing a new babysitter, counseling a subordinate on their work performance, dealing with pushy salespeople, or determining why your teenage came home late from curfew.
After learning how to spot deceptive language, you will never read or listen to anything the same way again.
