Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

This much-needed [audio]book provides many practical examples of how greater trust produces better results, at less cost . . . at work and in life. It's invaluable. Spencer Johnson, M.D., author of Who Moved My Cheese?
“This book can change lives.”  Larry King
“Covey convincingly validates our experience at Dell—that trust has a bottom-line impact on results and that when trust goes up, speed goes up while costs come down. This principle applies not only in our professional relationships with customers, business partners, and team members but also in our personal relationships, which makes this insightful book all the more valuable.”  Kevin Rollins, President and CEO, Dell Inc. 
“Covey brilliantly focuses on that overlooked bedrock of democratic capitalism—trust. Like the air we breathe, we too often take this critical intangible for granted. As Covey makes clear, we do so at our ultimate competitive peril.”  Steve Forbes, President and CEO, Forbes 
“Trust is so integral to our relationships that we often take it for granted, yet in an era marked by business scandals and a desire for accountability this book by leadership expert Covey is a welcome guide to nurturing trust in our professional and personal lives.”  Publishers Weekly
