Ekman, Paul. (2009). Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage. New York: Times Books.

For this edition, Ekman has added a new chapter on his latest research. He has figured out the most important behavioral clues to deceit, developed a one-hour self-instructional program that trains people to observe and understand “micro expressions,” and done research that identifies the facial expressions that show if someone is likely to become violent. A self-instructional program to train recognition of these dangerous signals has also been developed.

The Dalai Lama & Ekman , Paul. (2009). Emotional Awareness: Overcoming the Obstacles to Psychological Balance. New York: Times Books.

In this series of conversations, the Dalai Lama and Ekman push toward answers to the central questions of emotional experience. What are the sources of hate and compassion? What does science reveal about Buddhist meditation, and what can Buddhism gain from the scientific method? Here, they invite us to join them in an unfiltered view of two great traditions and two great minds.

In Emotions Revealed, Ekman distills decades of research into a practical, mind-opening, and life-changing guide to reading the emotions of those around us. He answers such questions as: How does our body signal to others whether we are slightly sad or anguished, peeved or enraged? Can we learn to distinguish between a polite smile and the genuine thing? Can we ever truly control our emotions?
