An instant New York Times bestseller!

Getting someone to tell the truth is an essential skill that very few people possess. In the boardroom, classroom, or our own homes, every day we interact with others and try to get the truth from them.

People are often untruthful out of fear of negative consequences associated with divulging information. But if a person is made to forget the long-term outcomes of lying, he or she can be influenced to disclose sensitive information that's being withheld. The aim is to encourage the person to remain in short-term thinking mode, shifting focus away from the long-term ramifications of telling the truth.

As former CIA agents and bestselling authors of Spy the Lie, Philip Houston, Mike Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the world's best at detecting deceptive behavior and eliciting the truth from even the most accomplished liars. Get the Truth is a step-by-step guide that empowers readers to elicit the truth from others. It also chronicles the fascinating story of how the authors used a methodology Houston developed to elicit the truth in the counterterrorism and criminal investigation realms, and how these techniques can be applied to our daily lives. Using thrilling anecdotes from their careers in counterintelligence, and with easy-to-follow instructions, the authors provide a foolproof means of getting absolutely anybody to give an honest answer.

Get the Truth is the easy and effective way to learn how to get the truth every time.

From the Back Cover:

"Wouldn't it be great if we could bottle the collective wisdom of CIA officers who have interrogated hundreds of people, and apply all that experience to situations where we need to know if someone is telling the truth? If you read this book, which is packed with great anecdotes, you will feel closer to being able to flesh out a lie."  Forbes
 
 
"Lie detection isn't ingrained; it's learned... By following their advice, which is based off years of interrogating terrorists and double agents, anyone can improve their odds at getting to the truth."  New York Post
 
 
"A captivating read with practical takeaway you'll use every day" John Miller, Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence, NYPD. Former Senior Correspondent, CBS News. Former Assistant Director for Public Affairs, FBI
