Review:

Praise for "The Truth About Trust"
"[DeSteno] does an excellent job presenting evidence and deriving practical conclusions for how trust works in everyday life."
-"Scientific American Mind"
"Smart, fun, and informative, "The Truth About Trust" describes the most frightening, most wonderful, and most human thing we do: putting our fates in someone else's hands. This one's worth reading. Trust me."
--Daniel Gilbert, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology at Harvard and bestselling author of "Stumbling on Happiness"
"Trusting others puts us at risk. Yet failure to trust entails risk as well. The ability to navigate through this minefield successfully is one of life's most valuable assets. DeSteno provides by far the best account of what science has learned about how we do this. "The Truth About Trust" is also a terrific read."
--Robert H. Frank, Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management at Cornell and bestselling author of "The Economic Naturalist "and "The Darwin Economy"

""The Truth About Trust "tackles some of the most important and challenging issues in life. Psychologist David DeSteno takes a fresh look at fundamental questions, from gauging the trustworthiness of others to whether you can trust yourself."
--Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of "Give and Take"

"Fresh insight into a necessary part of everyday life...In concise prose backed by engaging stories, the author addresses the pros and cons of common issues such as trusting a business transaction, using trust in learning situations and the need for trust in personal relationships."
--"Kirkus Reviews"
