You Can’t Lie to Me: The Revolutionary Program to Supercharge Your Inner Lie Detector and Get to the Truth

Janine Driver. HarperOne, $26.99 (288p) ISBN 978-0-06-211253-8
A lie detection expert for the FBI, CIA, and ATF shares the tricks of the trade in this helpful, easy-to-digest guide to spotting deception in our daily lives. Driver (You Say More Then You Think), who maintains that “the truth can be found in the details,” shares a five-step plan to get to the truth behind the lie: “We’re not looking for the lie; we’re looking for the truth.” She explains the importance of establishing a baseline for a potential fibber’s normal behavior and manner of speaking and build rapport with him or her before examining verbal indicators, facial expression, and body language that may point to deceit. Driver’s lessons are clearly illustrated with examples that range from public scenarios (such as Brad and Angelina’s body language while at a film screening when he was still with Jennifer Aniston or Tiger Woods’s press conference after he was caught cheating on his wife) to people we meet in daily life, such as car salesmen and pickup artists, and personal anecdotes from Driver’s students (who claim the program has changed their lives). Visual and verbal “homework” and self-tests aim to sharpen readers’ deception-detection skills. Though involving a lot of work, Driver’s formula is well explained and promises powerful results.
