The Truth About Lying is a book about how and why people lie, how we respond when others lie to us, how to tell when someone is lying, and what to do about it. The book includes a questionnaire to determine your own Lie-Q Score: how much you lie. As the book illustrates, we lie for all kinds of reasons-to protect ourselves, gain an advantage, avoid punishment, protect other's feelings, escape blame, or get out of something we don't want to do. Though philosophers, religious leaders, teachers, and parents tell us lying is morally wrong-at some time, everyone does it. And in the last decade, we have seen more and more examples of lying in the daily news. The Truth About Lying provides a broad overview of the subject in a book that has become a classic. It begins with an overview of the pervasiveness of lying today and throughout history. Then, it discusses the range of lies, reasons people lie, and different types of lies in different situations, using many stories from ordinary, respectable people to illustrate. The concluding chapters discuss how readers can deal with lying in their own lives.

In this forthright and fascinating study, Dr Stephen J. Costello, philosopher and logotherapist, takes us on a profound journey into the intricate and intriguing nature of the dynami of lying. Drawing on philosophy, logical puzzles and Lacanian psychoanalysis, Costello investigates the types of lies we tell, the lies that include a good deal of truth, how and why children lie, the lies lovers tell, self-deception and much more. In the final section of the book Costello focuses in particular on how men and women lie in different ways. Men, he argues, lie in the guise of truth while women tell the truth in the guise of a lie. Men tend to be more direct while women are more deceptive. Men lie to create a better image of themselves, women lie to make others feel more comfortable. Provocative, while also frequently amusing, The Truth about Lying is a pithy primer on the act and art of lying. “This is an absolutely fascinating book . . . a quite extraordinary range of information . . . I can only encourage everyone to read it and thoroughly enjoy it as I did.” - Ivor Browne, from the Foreword

"Everyone is looking for the real in whatever they endeavor. Garrison Wynn went out looking for real answers to real success challenges--and he found them. If you want them, get this book real fast!" --Jeffrey Gitomer, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Little Red Book of Selling Life and business aren’t fair, which is good. If they were, you couldn’t seize the unfair advantage. Think about it. Is your CEO the smartest person in the company? Is the head of your department more driven than you? Does the leading company in your industry make the best products? Probably not. They all have one thing in common, though: They’re on top of the pile because they discovered and exploited their unfair advantage—and with the help of business expert and motivational dynamo Garrison Wynn, you can do the same. The Real Truth about Success is the culmination of ten years’ worth of interviews with more than 5,000 top performers in their fields. During the process, Wynn discovered that better brains, a positive attitude, and superior all-around quality rarely drive true success. Rather, the most successful people in the world leverage their unique, distinctive qualities—whatever they may be—to propel themselves to the front of the line. In The Real Truth about Success, Wynn helps you: Discover (or create) your own personal advantage Align it with the most appropriate goals Transition from self-knowledge to repeatable implementation Relentlessly put your advantage to practical use Bask in the sunshine of well-deserved success All of us have a personal advantage we can use to stack the cards in our own favor. What’s yours? High intelligence? Good looks? Likability? Great connections? (Your unfair advantage may well be a talent for leveraging other peoples’ unfair advantage.) Refreshingly (sometimes brutally) honest about what it takes to get to the top, The Real Truth about Success blows the lid off the secret of their success—so you can make it the secret of your success.

Why do people lie, and how can lies be detected? There is now a substantial psychological literature relating to these fundamental questions, and this book reviews the relevant knowledge in detail, before focusing on guidelines for best practice in detecting deception. Psychological research is now available on individual differences in lying behaviour (gender differences, age differences and personality). There is also interesting research evidence of the ways in which deception is reflected both in real objective non-verbal behaviour and also in the perceived non-verbal cues which can help or mislead the observer in detecting deception. Although the book does include a major survey of the physiological aspects of deception and the polygraph as a method of detection, it also includes a thorough review of current knowledge of content analysis and validity assessment of speech and written statements. The book ends by discussing how professionals can improve lie detection by focusing on key aspects of the behaviour of the liar and by awareness and control of their own behaviour. Covers all three aspects of deceptionnon-verbal cues, speech and written statement analysis, and physiological responses Focuses on the behaviour and perceptions of the observer which can hinder the process of detection Based on the authors expert review of the research and evidence, and on his practical experience and connections with several police forces "Without doubt, this book is the most important contribution to research and practice in lie detection to be published in years. For the first time research about verbal, nonverbal and physiological correlates of truth telling and deception are reviewed comprehensively in one text. This book will benefit those who have to decide whether people are telling the truth or lying, because it both reviews contemporary research and provides practical guidelines." Frans Willem Winkel, Free University of Amsterdam President EAPL (European Association of Psychology and Law) This book is aimed at students, academics and professionals in psychology, criminology, policing and law
