Description : In The Liar in Your Life, psychology professor Robert Feldman, one of the world's leading authorities on deception, draws on his immense body of knowledge to give fresh insights into how and why we lie, how our culture has become increasingly tolerant of deception, the cost it exacts on us, and what to do about it. His work is at once surprising and sobering, full of corrections for common myths and explanations of pervasive oversimplifications. Feldman examines marital infidelity, little white lies, career-driven resumé lies, and how we teach children to lie. Along the way, he reveals-despite our beliefs to the contrary- how it is nearly impossible to spot a liar (studies have shown no relationship between nervousness, lack of eye contact, or a trembling voice, and acts of deception). He also provides startling evidence of just how integral lying is to our culture; indeed, his research shows that two people, meeting for the first time, will lie to each other an average of three times in the first ten minutes of a conversation. Feldman uses this discussion of deception to explore ways we can cope with infidelity, betrayal, and mistrust, in our friends and family. He also describes the lies we tell ourselves: Sometimes, the liar in your life is the person you see in the mirror. With incisive clarity and wry wit, Feldman has written a truthful book for anyone who whose life has been touched by deception.

Description : To begin with, I was caught by surprise. I was doing my usual, which was working at the daily grind of my slow, but steady home business (of publishing books) when I got this email about a new release coming out. But it said nothing more than "Dillard was releasing something new, and did I want to be part of it?" I knew of Mike Dillard from his days in Magnetic Sponsoring. This is where he "almost single-handedly revolutionized the Network Marketing industry" - simply by introducing them to Attraction Marketing, and the Self-Liquidating Offer ("Funded Proposal") After that, he'd gone on to build something called the Elevation Group which I hadn't paid much attention to, since it was beyond my price range. Then I got another email saying how to login to the affiliate members area - and once I got in, I started reviewing his descriptions about what was being offered... The reason I'm finally publishing this - is so you can learn from someone who's been there, drunk the Kool-Aid, and survived.
Description : If you want good employees, you need to know which quality makes them good. What makes some workers show up on time, perform admirably, work enthusiastically, get along with coworkers, and make conscientious decisions? That supreme quality is honesty, and its the character equivalent of the good-worker gene. In Hire Honesty, author Bill McConnell explains how good-worker genes affect the productivity, compatibility, and profitability of your business. Then he provides details and specific methods for screening, selecting, and managing employees so they will become and remain productive and contented in their jobs. He describes the tools needed for effective interviewing and hiring and he shows employers how to use them. Employers will learn about: honesty as the foundation of exceptional job performance; good-worker genes; managed conversations; all-about-you interviews; and trust as the principle motivator for honest workers. McConnell, who spent twenty-eight years as CEO of Patusan Trading Company, a wholesaler and importer of oriental rugs, and five years as general manager of Triple Creek Ranch, named the worlds top-ranked luxury hotel in 2014, developed and implemented the techniques of Hire Honesty in settings as diverse as remote Himalayan villages and elite American resorts. Simple and practical, these methods and principles help businesses run more smoothly, cultivate happier employees, and experience rising profits.
