Product description


“A thoughtful and remarkable book, by two thoughtful and remarkable people. This year’s must-read on nonverbal communications and human behavior.” (Joe Navarro, former FBI counterintelligence agent and author of the international bestseller What Every BODY Is Saying)

“Just when you think you know people (or how to read them) out comes a book like this. In business? In a relationship? In a family? This book is for you. I could not put it down, and I now question everything very differently.” (Mitch Joel, President of Mirum and author of Six Pixels of Separation and Ctrl Alt Delete)

“What you think you know about body language? Probably lies. What’s in this book? A way of getting to the truth. Bowden and Thomson share a simple, tested process to help you figure out what’s really going on with that other person, in business and in life.” (Michael Bungay Stanier, author of the Wall Street Journal-bestselling The Coaching Habit)

Truth and Lies is brilliant. If you’d like to learn the truth about who will have your back or if your kids are in safe hands or if your neighbor, boyfriend, best friend, or boss is keeping a secret from you, then read this book.” (Janine Driver, lie detection expert for the CIA and New York Times–bestselling author of You Say More Than You Think)

Truth and Lies is a wonderful guide to learning how to know what people are really thinking.” (Vanessa Van Edwards, bestselling author of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People)

“Mark Bowden and Tracey Thomson give us a front row seat to understanding nonverbal communication and human behavior. Truth and Lies shows us how to come off autopilot and get it right each and every time.” (Tonya Reiman, behavioral analyst, author of The Body Language of Dating)

“The cluttered space of body language clickbait continues to grow, but Truth and Lies clears a path to clarity and focus.” (Scott Rouse, body language analyst and military interrogation trainer)

“If you’ve ever wondered what selfies say, why people ‘ghost,’ and how to detect the signals of deception in the physical and digital world, then Truth and Lies is the definitive, non-verbal communication book of this generation.” (Jamie Mason Cohen, handwriting analyst to criminal profilers and TEDx speaker)

“A masterwork life-coaching manual. With advice from other leading experts in nonverbal behavior, Mark Bowden and Tracey Thomson bring you a rounded view and new system for how to understand and use body language in a wide variety of life situations.” (Greg Hartley, former US Army interrogator and human behavior consultant)

“The authors are true body language detectives. I wish I had learned their SCAN technique years ago. Brilliant and informative, this is a must-read for anyone after the truth.” (J. Paul Nadeau, former hostage negotiator)

From the Back Cover

A fresh, insightful, myth-busting guide to reading body language in the post-digital age

Whether you’re at a job interview or an after-party, searching LinkedIn or swiping right on a dating site, you will want (no, need!) to understand what people are really thinking, regardless of what they’re saying. How certain are you from their handshake that it’s a done deal? Can you be so sure they’re lying to you? Should you risk trusting them with your most intimate secrets—or even your life?

Unlocking your ability to better understand others’ feelings toward you and predict their intentions will help you know when to run with a real opportunity and when to back away from certain harm. Stop wasting your time expecting the worst or hoping for the best—at work, in a crucial negotiation or on a promising first date—by using this new system of understanding nonverbal behavior.

Bestselling author Mark Bowden, with co-author Tracey Thomson—both principals at the communications company TRUTHPLANE—illustrate the essential points of body language in key situations with examples from everyday life, leavened with humor and insights that you can use to your advantage in virtually any situation.
