It’s true…while nobody likes to be called a liar, the reality is we all lie!
We are taught to lie by the very people who end up being most offended by the practice. Our parents tell us to “wipe that expression off our face” when we turn our nose up at food we don’t like – they would apparently prefer us to pretend we do like it rather than admit the truth. Occasionally, we’re told to use a different tone of voice – a nice one, that doesn’t reflect how we really feel.
This is how we begin to learn that sometimes a lie can benefit us in the short term. As such, the ability to lie becomes an important part of our communication toolbox. What we are not taught is how to detect a lie – possibly the most powerful skill you can have.
As part of the Seduction Enigma Dating Psychology series, human behavior expert and renowned pickup artist Seventy Seven reveals the lie detection secrets of the FBI and behavioral analysis unit. Using these little known skills, you too can become a master of unlocking the truth behind another person’s story.
The difference between the average pickup artist and the masters is all about understanding what makes people tick. The knowledge in this book will have practical applications in all areas of your life, but especially to your dating.
- How to spot attraction signals a mile off
- What she is really thinking and why
- Advanced dating and relationships indicators
- How she “feels” about you in less than a second
- If she really has a boyfriend or if it’s a test
- And much more

This book deals with the art and science of protecting and promoting your own interests. It is about reaching that pentacle of accomplishment where you have groups of people devoted to you, your goals and your ambitions.

If you have to wait to find your sense of purpose then it will likely never happen. Right NOW you are in the perfect place to choose your purpose. When you do, life gains a clearer perspective and you can do the ordinary and mundane acts of daily life with more vigor and joy because everything is connected by your sense of purpose and destiny.
Yes, we have plans and goals and problems to solve and we work to solve those problems but there are few who can say they are driven by a sense of purpose. Those who are live like unstoppable forces of nature.

Gathering information from potential witnesses, family, and medical staff is vital in police and coroner investigations. Most law enforcement officers get a small amount of this training in basic academy and then learn as they go from actual case work.

A successful interrogation must be well planned, and investigator attitudes must be right from the start. Suspects will shut down and lawyer up fast when they are disrespected or frightened. This book will systematically walk the student through the process of gathering vital information from anyone who may have knowledge. Areas specifically covered are; the unique approach to take with family, interviewing children, conducting an area canvass, gaining vital medical information, and talking with victims of sexual assaults. The suspect interrogation portion will teach students how to get confessions. What approach to use and how to plan your interrogation. A portion of this course will focus directly on gaining confessions from sexual abuse and molestation offenders. The information and techniques taught in this book are not theories but actual steps successfully being used by hundreds of investigators across the country; and has been successfully used by the author for over 20 years.

Body Language: An Ex-SPY’s Guide to Master the Art of Nonverbal Communication to Know What People Are Really Thinking in Any Situation (Spy Self-Help) (Volume 7)
Imagine how different your life would be if you could really know what other people were thinking in any situation.
Unless you hone into the non-verbal gestures people are giving off, you will never quite know exactly what they are thinking. Whether it’s reading your colleagues in the office, your spouse or kids at the dinner table or even a complete stranger on the street. All too often people fall short of really picking up the true intensions of others as they depend solely on the words that are being spoken. They aren’t equipped with the speed reading skills and behavior pattern identifiers to see these non-verbal signals.
James Daugherty is an intelligence expert & former CIA Spy who specializes in all forms of human behavior. But there’s one skill which is critical to true communication, body language. A spy would be lost without the ability to read these gestures.
However he never realized quite how much his ability to read others whilst working for the FBI & in the field as an American spy would help everyday people in civilian life.
Imagine if you could pick up on the non-verbal signals someone was giving you to effectively know what they were really thinking.
In this insightful and functional book, Daugherty gives readers a firsthand look into the trials & tribulations he dealt with in the field as a CIA operative & no nonsense guide revealing how to:
- Understand the biochemistry behind body language
- Identify the 5 C’s of context for non-verbal communication
- Implement reading strategies and behavioral tactics for the real world
- Pick up on the largely unconscious signals of the lower limbs
- Know what crossing and pointing of the arms/hands are really telling you
- Facial features that hold most weight (hint eyes & mouth)
- Understand the “Pinocchio Principle” when it comes to lying
- Deception detectors in general
… and much more.
An Ex-Spy’s guide to body language is a mixture of theoretical principles combined with real life examples to back up the author’s advice. The clever non-verbal communication tricks described will help you with all of the interactions in life from career, relationships, strangers and everything in between.

A groundbreaking work of science that confirms, for the first time, the independent existence of the mind–and demonstrates the possibilities for human control over the workings of the brain.
Conventional science has long held the position that ‘the mind’ is merely an illusion, a side effect of electrochemical activity in the physical brain. Now in paperback, Dr Jeffrey Schwartz and Sharon Begley’s groundbreaking work, The Mind and the Brain, argues exactly the opposite: that the mind has a life of its own.Dr Schwartz, a leading researcher in brain dysfunctions, and Wall Street Journal science columnist Sharon Begley demonstrate that the human mind is an independent entity that can shape and control the functioning of the physical brain. Their work has its basis in our emerging understanding of adult neuroplasticity–the brain’s ability to be rewired not just in childhood, but throughout life, a trait only recently established by neuroscientists.
Through decades of work treating patients with obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), Schwartz made an extraordinary finding: while following the therapy he developed, his patients were effecting significant and lasting changes in their own neural pathways. It was a scientific first: by actively focusing their attention away from negative behaviors and toward more positive ones, Schwartz’s patients were using their minds to reshape their brains–and discovering a thrilling new dimension to the concept of neuroplasticity.
The Mind and the Brain follows Schwartz as he investigates this newly discovered power, which he calls self–directed neuroplasticity or, more simply, mental force. It describes his work with noted physicist Henry Stapp and connects the concept of ‘mental force’ with the ancient practice of mindfulness in Buddhist tradition. And it points to potential new applications that could transform the treatment of almost every variety of neurological dysfunction, from dyslexia to stroke–and could lead to new strategies to help us harness our mental powers. Yet as wondrous as these implications are, perhaps even more important is the philosophical dimension of Schwartz’s work. For the existence of mental force offers convincing scientific evidence of human free will, and thus of man’s inherent capacity for moral choice.

Ever since American prisoners of war in Korea suddenly switched sides to the Communist cause, the concept of brainwashing has continued to fascinate and confuse. Is it really possible to force any thinking person to act in a way completely alien to his character? What makes so-called brainwashing so different from the equally insidious effects of indoctrination and conditioning, or even advertising and education? Research findings from psychology show that brainwashing is not a special subversive technique; it is the clever manipulation of unrealized influences that operate in all our lives. This book, by breaking down so-called brainwashing to its individual elements, shows how social conditioning, need for approval, emotional dependency and much else that we are unaware of, prevent us from being as self-directed as we think; and, conversely, which human traits make us the least susceptible to subtle influence.

A compelling journey into the science and behavior of psychopaths, written by the leading scientist in the field of criminal psychopathy.
We know of psychopaths from chilling headlines and stories in the news and movies—from Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy, to Hannibal Lecter and Dexter Morgan. As Dr. Kent Kiehl shows, psychopaths can be identified by a checklist of symptoms that includes pathological lying; lack of empathy, guilt, and remorse; grandiose sense of self-worth; manipulation; and failure to accept one’s actions. But why do psychopaths behave the way they do? Is it the result of their environment— how they were raised—or is there a genetic component to their lack of conscience?
This is the question Kiehl, a protégé of famed psychopath researcher Dr. Robert Hare, was determined to answer as he began his career twenty years ago. To aid in his quest to unravel the psychopathic mind, Kiehl created the first mobile functional MRI scanner to study psychopaths in prison populations. The brains of more than five hundred psychopaths and three thousand other offenders have been scanned by Kiehl’s laboratory—the world’s largest forensic neuroscience repository of its kind. Over the course of The Psychopath Whisperer, we follow the scientific bread crumbs that Kiehl uncovered to show that the key brain structures that correspond with emotional engagement and reactions are diminished in psychopaths, offering new clues to how to predict and treat the disorder.
In The Psychopath Whisperer, Kiehl describes in fascinating detail his years working with psychopaths and studying their thought processes— from the remorseless serial killers he meets with behind bars to children whose behavior and personality traits exhibit the early warning signs of psychopathy.
Less than 1 percent of the general population meets the criteria for psychopathy. But psychopaths account for a vastly outsized proportion of violent crimes. And as Kiehl shows, many who aren’t psychopaths exhibit some of the behaviors and traits associated with the condition. What do you do if you discover your roommate, or boss, or the person you are dating has traits that define a psychopath? And what does having a diminished limbic region of the brain mean for how the legal system approaches crimes committed by psychopaths?
A compelling narrative of cutting-edge science, The Psychopath Whisperer will open your eyes on a fascinating but little understood world, with startling implications for society, the law, and our personal lives.

Set for release on the 10th anniversary of Saddam Hussein’s execution, a riveting, revealing and newsmaking account of the CIA’s interrogation of Saddam, written by the CIA agent who conducted the questioning.
In December 2003, after one of the largest, most aggressive manhunts in history, US military forces captured Iraqi president Saddam Hussein near his hometown of Tikrit. Beset by body-double rumors and false alarms during a nine-month search, the Bush administration needed positive identification of the prisoner before it could make the announcement that would rocket around the world.
At the time, John Nixon was a senior CIA leadership analyst who had spent years studying the Iraqi dictator. Called upon to make the official ID, Nixon looked for telltale scars and tribal tattoos and asked Hussein a list of questions only he could answer. The man was indeed Saddam Hussein, but as Nixon learned in the ensuing weeks, both he and America had greatly misunderstood just who Saddam Hussein really was.
Debriefing the President presents an astounding, candid portrait of one of our era’s most notorious strongmen. Nixon, the first man to conduct a prolonged interrogation of Hussein after his capture, offers expert insight into the history and mind of America’s most enigmatic enemy. After years of parsing Hussein’s leadership from afar, Nixon faithfully recounts his debriefing sessions and subsequently strips away the mythology surrounding an equally brutal and complex man. His account is not an apology, but a sobering examination of how preconceived ideas led Washington policymakers—and the Bush White House—astray. Unflinching and unprecedented, Debriefing the President exposes a fundamental misreading of one of the modern world’s most central figures and presents a new narrative that boldly counters the received account.
