Who lies more easily – men or women? Why does anyone lie in the first place? How can you tell? What do you look for? The Truth about Lies will help you separate fact from fiction. It will help you tell who's lying and who's telling the truth. It will show you how to detect a liar from what people say, how they say it and from their body language. Ranging from medieval witch-ducking to state-of-the-art truth serums, Andy Shea and Steve Van Aperen use examples from history and from modern-day celebrity cases to spin a tale about lies and lie detection through the ages.

How can you spot a lie? Ex-cop Andy Shea and writer Steve Van Aperen take a look at humans' attempts to find the truth, from the medieval days of trial by ordeal to the present. The authors use real-life cases, from famous crimes to comments by U.S. presidents, to make their points. James Wright narrates with a droll tone that makes the authors' opinions entertaining as well as informative. The book looks at all angles of the quest for truth, offering advice to avoid getting taken, while acknowledging that a perfect solution like a truth serum is the stuff of fiction.
