Lying is a normal part of human communication and is sometimes necessary to protect someone’s feelings. At the same time, there are also malicious lies meant to deceive, cheat, and defraud. Especially in today’s world, in which technology, media, and the government have blurred the lines between fact and fiction, you can’t always rely on what comes out of someone’s mouth or what you see on the internet or television. It doesn’t take mind-reading superpowers to be able to tell when someone is lying—but it does take special skills and a little practice. In How to Become a Human Shit Detector, international expert in undercover operations Dr. David Craig provides readers with an easy-to-follow guide on applying lie-detection skills to your everyday life. From the simple skills of bargaining, making a purchase, or dealing with children, to the more serious business of negotiating a contract, identifying infidelity, or understanding lies in politics, Craig delivers simple but effective tips and techniques we can all use to see behind the façade and find our way to the truth. The culmination of more than twenty years of practical criminology and hundreds of hours of academic research, this book is the premier guide to the art of lie-detecting. Split into three parts, the book looks at understanding lies and how to detect lies, and it includes an easy reference section that summarizes all the main points. The mystery of what a person is really thinking is finally unlocked in this fascinating and informative book.

In September 1955 six-year-old Mark O’Brien moved his arms and legs for the last time. He came out of a coma to find himself enclosed from the neck down in an iron lung, the machine in which he would live for much of the rest of his life. For the first time in paperback, How I Became a Human Being is O’Brien’s account of his struggles to lead an independent life despite a lifelong disability. In 1955 he contracted polio and became permanently paralyzed from the neck down. O’Brien describes growing up without the use of his limbs, his adolescence struggling with physical rehabilitation and suffering the bureaucracy of hospitals and institutions, and his adult life as an independent student and writer. Despite his physical limitations, O’Brien crafts a narrative that is as rich and vivid as the life he led.

Prepare for the journey of your life. Literally. This book does not aim to make your life carefree, to make your problems disappear, to turn you into a saint free from blemish or blame. In fact, you may end up utterly bewildered by The Mystery Experience at times. But you will also be intrigued. Curious.Questioning. Loving. Loved. Overjoyed. Seduced out of the numbness of banality. And most importantly, awake. Gloriously awake, and full of wonder. Philosopher and author Tim Freke leads us on a journey through the nature of the 'Mystery Experience', via quantum physics, Gnosticism, the essence of Tao, meditation, Walt Whitman, Greek mythology, Buddhism, Dub Punk musician Jah Wobble, and Carl Jung. But what is the 'Mystery Experience'? You can taste it by simply focusing your attention on the mystery. But what is the mystery? The mystery is life. The mystery is the journey. The mystery is you. The mystery is me. The mystery makes you want to say, simply: WOW. No one has the answers, but asking the questions is what makes us come alive. Wherever you're coming from, you will find this journey rewarding. The only real requirement is that you're willing to wonder about life to be curious and open to be an explorer. Now prepare to leave base camp, because we're about to set off on a grand adventure.

In a sped-up world, the virtues of introspection, reflection, and contemplation are sometimes discarded. As we rush to get to the "bottom line" on the numerous topics that we confront in the news and in our daily lives we can lose sight of the big picture as we narrow our focus on the seemingly most relevant details. The result is a world awash in rash judgements, harsh, but empty sound bytes, and self-fulfilling prophecies where the answers are had before the questions are even posed. This book is my reaction to such a world. It is an attempt to inject more thoughtfulness into the great debates of our time and of the past. However, my solution, at least in this book, is not to delineate my answers to the philosophical problems of our world but to revel in the questions themselves. To explore the many dimensions of the questions in order to gain deeper understanding of the issues in hopes of finding a middle ground between the distant poles involved in the debate. This book is in no way an end to the conflict...it is, hopefully, the beginning of a great discussion.

Conceived in an environment of pathological liars, this book takes "common sense" to a new level. Some deceptions are very subtle and nefarious, and some deceptions are your own conclusions - which you arrive at by the design of the liar - or government - which tells you only what will lead you to believe their lies
