To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I like the fact the author said you have to read the signs as words so as to make up the sentence. You should never analyze just one sign. It would be the same as trying to understand a sentence outside the context. So in order to find out whether somebody is lying, pay attention to their words and their body language. I like the statement analysis pointed out. Every person has one specific vocabulary and they use a word with a precise meaning, if they change it, you should pay attention. There is a big difference between never and no. I didn’t know about that. Those are some of the great pieces of information I found in this book. I'm a writer, so I need this kind of information in order to describe the signs accurately in fiction, so it has impacted my writing. This is not only good in terms of learning to read people to find out whether they are lying, but also as a way to become more observant. READ THE HIDDEN SECRETS OF BODY LANGUAGE is a book I can compare it to.
As a body language expert myself, doing body language analysis for various television networks, and magazines, and, having trained with the author of this book, Mark McClish, I would urge anyone considering this book to go ahead and get it. Well written, informative and to the point, I promise, you'll come away with something you can begin using the same day. Great job, Mark!
Author Mark McClish is an author, teacher and analyst who's work is often quoted, and who's opinion has been used on television investigatory shows. He also runs an online course which is a must for every investigator, journalist, high school teacher, counselor, therapist, attorney, small business owner, parent of more than one child...well, you get the picture: anyone who needs to discern truth from falsehood. Here, McClish shows why Statement Analysis is so accurate, but now adds in body language analysis and handwriting. The book is full of short examples that highlight each principle, and is not only good for teaching, but is fascinating to read. An excellent book for all.
The most common sense approach yet and it has confirmed my method has been right all along. Now I will be even better adding this to my own research. Great book! Easy read with a very logical progression.
This book is too short but it contains the basic techniques which you need to combine some of them to be able to easily detect lies. I've applied the written statements analysis techniques and viola, it works!
