I thought I was pretty trustworthy, but this book helped me look at my own behavior in the four areas that build trust. I was surprised to see that I was much stronger in some areas than I was in others. What I liked is that the book makes it clear how to build strength in your weak areas. This book raised my awareness about myself and has had a positive impact long after I put it down. It’s great for sharing with family, friends, or coworkers as an ice breaker to talk about any issues you might be having. Read it!
