Before reading this book I viewed trust as a simplistic term. You either trust someone or not and its virtually instinctual. However, I was honored enough to take a class with Professor Stroh in which I read this book. I learned that our human instincts are flawed. Trust wasn't such a straightforward idea but instead a complicated matter. Trust in our personal lives and workplace should be consciously examined regularly in order to live a happy and successful life. This book is a wonderful tool in order to assess the trustworthiness of the people in which we surround ourselves with (which is harder to identify then perceived). Most of all, this book taught me that I wasn't as trustworthy as I always assumed. Since reading the book I have tried to better myself in order to be there for the people around me. I highly recommend reading this book for it is a powerful instrument that everyone can utilize.

This book is a valuable tool for life! It taught me to become more aware of who I allow into my "inner-circle". The meaning of " trust" and how greatly it affects every aspect of our lives deserves the attention Dr. Stroh's book gives it. Learning " trust rules" is essential to a life of well-being. Her book has definitely improved my quality of living.
