Telling Lies describes how lies vary in form and how they can differ from other types of misinformation that can reveal untruths.

Ekman pulls no punches in the application of his experiences and updating the teach your self aspect of deception detection.
Providing insight to behaviour paradigms and aspects of reasonings behind lying, the narrative is not set up like some school text book, it starts out simply enough as a 'story' (which may or may not be true) and moves along chapter by chapter through the uneasy waters of deception, detection and the architecture of lying.
A must read if your Paranoid, or simply if your looking to expand your psychoanalytical techniques relating to life and work matters, I picked it up as an addition to my psychology studies, in that I find it invaluable in the Private Security Industry where I occasionally consult, where a persons' lying could verily compromise the very functionality; the very security of the business at hand.
Have I caught any one yet through this book? Yes, though I'm not at liberty to discuss that.
Is any of it fool proof? No, the 'Human Factor' will always play a part, though technology is fast attempting to place it in obsolescence, people can detect faster than any technological trickery available to date.
Is this a Manual? Not that it is traditional in its format, simply take the concepts and expand upon them, following the research papers as listed in the Appendix and perhaps then it's a Manual.
Be careful on how you use the material in regards to relationships, Ekman states on page 162; chapter Six: "The consequences can be disastrous for the disbelieved truthful adult as well. A friendship may be lost, or a job, or even a life..."
Though in my circumstances people first perceived as honourable loved ones; friends and colleagues, I was lucky with the revelations of their Sociopathy and Psychopathy and exfiltrating from the situations, others might not be so.
