@Read Kindle ó Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage Ç Paul Ekman, a renowned expert in emotions research and nonverbal communication, has now updated his groundbreaking inquiry into lying and methods for uncovering lies From the deception strategies of international public figures, such as Adolf Hitler and Richard Nixon, to the deceitful behavior of private individuals, including adulterers and petty criminals, Ekman shows that a successful liar most often depends on a willfully innocent dupe His study describes how lies vary in form and can differ from other types of misinformation, as well as how a person s body language, voice, and facial expressions can give away a lie but still escape the detection of professional lie hunters judges, police officers, drug enforcement agents, Secret Service agents, and others I do love to go sit at the bookstore downtown during lunch, grabbing a bite at Lizard s Whenever I step inside, I browse and

is the indy bookstore s less than desirable stock Not sure.At any rate, contrary to the sales pitch on the book s back cover, Telling Lies does not seem to be made of the kind of stuff that could ever lead to an exciting television series Its subtitle, Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage, suggested that I might immediately be catapulted into scintillating and eye opening analyses of advertising and commercial lies, why they succeed and fail, and perhaps how to spot a lie For example, perhaps they could have discussed the infamous Coke Zero blog scam would have been a decent example of something recent, right out of the dumb criminals playbook Or maybe talk about famous commercial lies Not a chance.So, failing that, you d think I d bee exposed to discussions of famous political lies Well, there is some of that Nixon, John Dean, and a couple of obscure political incidents and figures But nothing especially compelling, though the story about John Dean was interesting enough Still, there was no discussion of Clinton let alone Bush Why Basically, the message of this book is It s rilly rilly rilly hard to tell if someone is lying It all depends on circumstances, context, chance which is a fine thesis Really, it is But seriously There is no wealth of detailed, practical information about lying and lie detection unless variation on the message, it s complicated, constitute a wealth of anything Paul Ekman is without a doubt one of the top experts in the world on facial expressions in humans His research is careful, painstaking, and intelligently done He has honestly subtitled this book Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace,Politics, and Marriage It is not his fault that the book has been hyped and is advertised as being able to teach us unfailingly when someone is lying No book can teach anyone to be positive that someone else is telling the truth No book can tell anyone proof posi Paul Ekman is without a doubt one of the

and Marriage It is not his fault that the book has been hyped and is advertised as being able to teach us unfailingly when someone is lying No book can teach anyone to be positive that someone else is telling the truth No book can tell anyone proof positive indicators of lying And, Paul Ekman himself says that every one of the indicators of lying that he uncovered don t always indicate lying That includes lie detector machines All the machines and facial tics and conversational tics tell you that someone is nervous or anxious and deceit is not the only thing that makes people nervous Moreover, some liars are so good that they show no indicators at all They apparently don t have any consciences However, some of the time for some people, maybe even most people, the indicators will at least make you suspicious that they re lying Ekman s careful descriptions of these indicators are very well worth reading about I found it all very interesting.I have but one quarrel with this work In several places, he says that something has not yet been proven or shown, but he thinks that withresearch it will be proven or shown That is not a scientific argument Who knows whatresearch will show That is the sort of argument that Behaviorists used for decades In my Intro to Psych class at Brown, my professor said that If we knew every single stimulus that had impinged on someone from infancy on, we could predict every one of his actions throughout his life I thought to myself then, Suppose we knew every single stimulus and it proved that you couldn t predict behavior, that the stimuli alone that one is subjected to is not the sole predictor of behavior Of course, Noam Chomsky demolished Behaviorism when he showed that every human being can utter new thoughts, not only those he or she had heard My only criticism This one should have been really interesting It s written by one of the scientists whose work serves as the inspiration for Lie to Me , yet you haven t really experienced boring until you read upwards of 40 pages describing minute facial expressions Also, I was disappointed that there was really nothing in here I hadn t already seen presented in ainteresting and engaging way Were this a documentary, it would have been awesome As a book, I just wanted it to end.
