Do you want to become a better liar or avoid being duped? From your workplace to your personal relationships, the courtroom to the police station, we're all lied to in our daily lives. I've had some very unique experiences while working for a multinational corporation- and I've seen how lies are put into official files, how organisations including the police can be manipulated, and how information is kept secret from targets and the press. I've also seen how innocent people are roped into this game. I'm drawing on nearly two decades' experiences for this book- the only how-to-lie book available in the world. This book tells you how to:Train people to become your accomplices and do your dirty work (including operating networks, passing false information to your enemies, lying for you)Trick your adversaries into revealing secret infoDeal with people in authority who treat you unfairlyWin court casesGet out of troubleLie to the police and manipulate them into working with youLie in official records and filesUse others as agents to lie for you or get information for youDefend against lies and tricksCreate and use networks to spread lies/get informationPlus 5 more chapters about lying tactics you can use, as well as preparing your lies and tips for lying in documentation, phone/skype and face to face.For a free sample of the ebook, check out my blog: https://ultimateguidetolying.wordpress.com/the-ultimate-guide-to-lying-free-sample/“Truth be told, this is the most thorough and meticulous analysis of this most common human vice that I have ever read. Compressed into its 50-odd pages, this booklet comprises the ins and outs of lying as an art form, a survival tactic, an organizing principle, and a game. Dazzling!”– Dr Sam Vaknin, author of Malignant Self Love and several other books and DVD lectures on narcissism and psychopaths, Editor in Chief of Global Politician and blogger on narcissists, psychopaths, and abuse.“Firenza Cole’s ‘The Ultimate Guide to Lying’ is one of those books that will subtly change the way you look at the world around you and your relationship to those you meet every day. The title is not a boast. The author systematically analyses the whole spectra of falsehood fabrication, exposing the tricks and techniques used to pull the wool over our eyes every day. And not just those employed by our ‘usual suspects’. As you read her amazing breakdown, you become aware of how you have seen the very same artifices applied in many facets of your existence. Some of it is familiar; other nuances are scary at times. I can also see a market for this tome far beyond what the author may have intended. As a writer of thriller fiction (some say a professional liar) its content will enable me to improve character dialogue, adding elements and shading in the way character deal with each other on the written page. Superb analysis, expertly presented.”– Eric J Gates, author of several thriller novels including Outsourced and former cybersecurity consultant.“This book is a very clinical and precise guide to the human instinct to deceive, the art of manipulation and the use of deliberate falsehoods to further commercial gain. Using the skill as a honed tool to achieve a specific purpose in business, personal relationships and with those in authority."-Sally G Cronin, author of Size Matters and several other books, blogger and nutritional therapist.“An original, quirky and informative book, that helps you avoid the cheats, or how to become a better one!”– Roger A. Price, retired National Crime Squad Detective Inspector and author of two crime thrillers, By Their Rules and A New Menace.

How to Use MENTAL PICKPOCKETING to Get to the Truth Without Seeming to Ask Questions: Career-savvy People Skills and Business Communication Skills: (Career Savvy People Skills Book 2)
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER . . . AND NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO SHAREKnowledge is power . . . particularly in organizations and teams where your success depends in large part on career-savvy subtle communication skills and other people skills at work—particularly your ability to ferret out semi-hidden information, and to discern the deeper reality behind situations and events taking place around you.It’s easy enough to ask questions, and most of the time most of the people will do their best to share the truth. But not always. Sometimes, if you play it straight and ask direct questions, you won’t get straight answers, and you won’t get to the truth—instead, you’ll get distortion, “spin” and responses that are somewhat less than the whole truth.

WHAT IS “MENTAL PICKPOCKETING”?In those situations, how do you get information—and get the truth--without flagging what you’re really after? By employing mental pickpocketing— the art and science of asking questions without seeming to ask, or without seeming to ask what you’re really after.

"This engaging biography exactly and vividly catches the tone of a region, a time, and a man."—Larry McMurtryFrom the best-selling author of Billy the Kid and Route 66, a true-life story of a notorious outlaw that magnificently re-creates the vanished, impoverished world of Dust Bowl America. Michael Wallis evokes the hard times of the era as he follows the life of Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd from his coming of age, when there were no jobs and no food, to his descent into a life of petty crime, bootlegging, murder, and prison. Before long he was one of the FBI's original "public enemies." After a series of spectacular bank robberies he was slain in an Ohio field in 1934 at the age of thirty. Pretty Boy is social history at its best, portraying, with a sweeping style, the larger story of the hardscrabble farmers whose lives were so intolerably shattered by the Depression.
