"Stroh (business, Loyola Univ., Chicago) has written a very interesting book about how to determine the trustworthiness of colleagues in the workplace, as well as personal acquaintances. Trustworthiness is an important component of successful business relationships today, and this book considers a key component of organizational behavior in a unique, effective manner. The author addresses the common problems of trusting the wrong people and suffering the consequences. She also discusses how to determine who is trustworthy and what to do with people who are not, as well as how to assess relationships to see how they have evolved over time. The book includes a Trust Rules Questionnaire that serves as an evaluation tool for determining the trustworthiness of confidants. Stroh suggests that people periodically reassess their relationships with those they trust, to assess current situations. She includes important information from a variety of successful business practitioners regarding their wisdom and evaluation of what it means to be trustworthy in the business world. Her methodology includes surveys and personal interviews with hundreds of business practitioners, and her outcomes are useful for evaluative purposes. Recommended. General readers; students, upper-division undergraduate and up; and practitioners." -
