What an enlightening book. I had no idea trust was so important and necessary. Reading Cloud's book helped me understand why some people seem to rub me the wrong way, so to speak. But I also learned that trust is certainly more than just a feeling. I appreciate Cloud teaching us how to recognize the characteristics leading to trust and how we can become a trustworthy person. Understanding is a big part of it and listening is the foundation to that understanding. He explores the additional aspects of motive, ability, character, and track record. He gives loads of examples from his own experiences, including what can be accomplished when trust is established.
This is a good book for us to become better at deciding who is trustworthy and whether we should put ourselves at risk or not. It is also good for knowing how to handle a situation when trust has been broken, including how to repair the relationship. This book is full of wisdom and practical teaching.
My rating: 5/5 stars.
