Why I Wrote This Book

I wrote True Lies: A Guide to Reading Faces, Interpreting Body Language and Detecting Deception in the Real World for a number of reasons - some of which I have already mentioned.

There are already a lot of books (and other resources) out there on the subjects of facial expressions, body language and detecting deception, with some being very good in my opinion, some overly detailed (aimed at the scientific community and less digestible by the non-scientific community), and some quite under detailed (and horribly inaccurate). This is where I saw a gap: for a guide that combines research on the face, body language and detecting deception through behavioural cues into one simple-to-read "handbook". This book is not intended to be a textbook, nor does it cover all research and authors in these areas. I made the decision early on that this book must be;

1) Simple to read,
2) Attract both experts in the field as well as welcoming fresh interest,
3) Promote the science and shed light on myths and incorrect assumptions, and
4) To encourage better communication and understanding in all areas of people's lives.

This last point is (as depicted on the front cover and introduced above) the purpose of this book: to get the message out to the world that becoming proficient with reading emotions, micro expressions and body language are useful in all areas of life; such as relationships, the corporate world, at home with the family and as consumers. The more people that become proficient with detecting deception can help to create an honest environment. Why bother lying if everyone will call you on it?

Guideline to Catching Liars by Examining Nonverbal and Verbal Behaviour - Observational Guidelines (6): Pay attention to the more diagnostic verbal and nonverbal cues to deceit. Don't pay attentions so much to subjective (believed) indicators, rather lie detectors should focus on objective (actual) indicators. Subjective indicators include inaccurate actions that are perceived as deceptive such as an increase in position shifts, fidgeting, eye blinks, pauses and decrease in gaze. Objective indicators include more accurate (in clusters) actions that are more often shown by liars than truth tellers such as an increase in voice pitch and pause durations, and a decrease in illustrators. Overall, beware of mythical "lie detection" constructs.
