Liars & Outliers: Enabling the Trust That Society Needs to Thrive Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How does society function when you can't trust everyone?When we think about trust, we naturally think about personal relationships or bank vaults. That's too narrow. Trust is much broader, and much more important. Nothing in society works without trust. It's the foundation of communities, commerce, democracy - everything.In this insightful and entertaining book, Schneier weaves together ideas from across the social and biological Science & Technologys to explain how society induces trust. He shows how trust works and fails in social settings, communities, organizations, countries, and the world.In today's hyper-connected society, understanding the mechanisms of trust is as important as understanding electricity was a century ago. Issues of trust and security are critical to solving problems as diverse as corporate responsibility, global warming, and our moribund political system. After listening to Liars and Outliers, you'll think about social problems, large and small, differently.
