"What really drives success and failure' Can I trust you' It's the question that strikes at the heart of human existence. Whether we're talking about business partnerships, romantic relationships, child-parent bonds, or the brave new world of virtual interaction, trust, when correctly placed, is what makes our world spin and lives flourish. Renowned psychologist David DeSteno brings together the latest research from diverse fields, including psychology, economics, biology, and robotics, to create a compelling narrative about the forces that have shaped the human mind's propensities to trust. He shows us how trust influences us at every level, from how we learn, to how we love, to how we spend, to how we take care of our own health and well-being. Using cutting edge research from his own lab, he also unlocks, for the first time, the cues that allow us to read the trustworthiness of others accurately. Appealing to readers of Dan Ariely, Dan Gilbert, and David Eaglemen, The Truth About Trust offers a new paradigm that will change not only how you think about trust, but also how you understand, communicate, and make decisions in every area of your life."

Very good book and covers a wide range of topics about trust and the experiments used to get the findings. A couple of things worthy noting from the book: 1) Trustworthy behavior is situational and it depends on the reward of the short term vs the long term 2) Trusting by reputation alone is not a good idea 3) Well off people who does not need to depend other people are not trustworthy 4) Will power is finite 5) Innate senses can be a reliable indicator of whether a stranger is trustworthy or not
