A very deep dive into the science of trust. While it focuses on trust in organisations it is really easy to extrapolate the ideas into other domains such as family.

I couldn't even get through the first 1/3. The narration is just bad, but worse is the story itself. It sounds like the author actually thinks that Elon is God and we need to know details like what his second cousin's dog groomer is like.

Could have been a twenty minute book

Mel is a master narrator with great persuasion skills. However, that is all this is. She sounds so sure of herself, so convincing that she knows the science, but she doesn't. For instance, her report on the sleep research if not just a bit wrong, but almost completely wrong.

This book has one somewhat interesting idea in it, that is it. One short chapter would have covered it, the rest is pure filler and often incorrect.
