THE LEAP The Science of Trust and Why It Matters

by | Read by Jeff Cummings

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

With his relaxed enunciation and vocal clarity, narrator Jeff Cummings conveys enthusiasm that will help listeners savor this book's analytical writing and captivating storytelling. His respectful, moderated enthusiasm never competes with the author's careful research. The author looks methodically at the dynamics of trust by citing the importance of factors like social status, personal connections, brain chemistry, and instinctual reactions. He offers fascinating vignettes on phenomena such as how con men inspire trust and how people recover from mass breaches of trust such as those that occurred in Rwanda and Nazi Germany. The author's perspectives on power and the destructive effects of political extremism are chillingly familiar yet convey optimism that we can improve society in the current climate of simplistic rhetoric and easy violence.
