Personal Growth • 1.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with the unabridged NEVER BE LIED TO AGAIN.]--The basis of this particular book is that you can learn how to tell when people are lying by learning how to observe, by probing for revealing information, and by learning what not to say or do in these situations. The incredible amount of information in the book makes it overwhelming in the unabridged format. With no written outline, it's impossible to keep up with the organization of the material. It needs a written study guide. Another problem is Richard M. Davidson sounds like someone from the 1950s. The abridged version is introduced by the author, who has a reasonable speaking personality. It's then read alternatively by Jan Maxwell and Scott Brice, whose voices are considerably warmer, though still too serious, for my taste. Happily, they make the ideas more inviting and digestible. In the shorter format, the basic ideas don't seem so overwhelming. And at $12 it's a much better value. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
