The Liar in Your Life: The Way to Truthful Relationships by Robert Feldman

Does anyone you encounter lie to you?  Does everyone you encounter lie to you?  Can you tell if a person is lying?  Can law enforcement officials, with their special training, tell?  Can experts using polygraph machines tell?  Are some lies—the “little white lie” variety—useful to society?  Why do people lie?  When and how do children learn to lie?

This book, written by a psychology professor who’s done extensive research into lying, deals with these questions and more.  It talks about con men, cheating, how to get the truth from someone who’s lying to protect your feelings, deception as animals practice it, online lies, deception by the media, and much more.

If any of these topics intrigue you, you’ll want to read this book!
