It appeared that Phil had drawn the long straw that day. Theoreign asset he was scheduled to meet at a downtown hotel ina country that can’t be identied due to the sensitive natureo the CIAs work there had served the Agency well or twentyyears, and his loyalty was thought to have been proven. Theasset, whom we’ll call “Omar,” had been questioned by CIApersonnel on numerable occasions over the years in debriengsand routine security interviews, and his credibility was rein-orced with every encounter. Omar had earned his stripes asa trusted partner who was prepared to carry out the missionwhenever he was called upon.Phil and an Oce o Security colleague had been dis-patched rom their home base at Langley a couple o weeks

Slight but entertaining book about how to catch people out by asking nonjudgmental, focused questions, and identifying specific verbal/nonverbal behaviors as indicating a need for further investigation (e.g., a lot of weasel words, distraction claims about the person’s general character in response to a question about a specific matter, jiggling feet, etc.). They aren’t fans of microexpressions or of giving much weight to lack of eye contact, and several times emphasize the importance of understanding the interviewee’s culture, because some behaviors are simply different across cultures.

former cia officers lecture on how to "spy the lie". that is, how to detect deception in others. i found the writing and tone overly simplistic and borders on the irritating-slash-mind-numbing in some parts...but the topic is inherently interesting to me and was enough to drive me to speed read the book. besides, i ultimately found what the authors are talking about to be pragmatic and offers an insight into human behavior not discussed in the same way any where else (to my knowledge).memorable quote: "Don't ask the question unless you're sure you really want to know the answer."
