Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Who Can You Trust? by Rachel Botsman, read by Caroline Baum.

If you can't trust those in charge, who can you trust?

From government to business, banks to media, trust in institutions is at an all-time low. Widespread corruption, elitism and economic disparity have led to a worldwide upsurge of antiestablishment movements. But this isn't the age of distrust - far from it.

In this revolutionary book, world-renowned trust expert Rachel Botsman reveals that we are at the tipping point of one of the biggest social transformations in human history. A new world order is emerging: we have lost faith in brands, leaders and systems, but millions of people every day rent their homes to total strangers on AirBnB, exchange cryptocurrency online or get in the cars of unknown Uber drivers.

This is the age of distributed trust; a paradigm shift driven by new technologies that are rewriting the rules of an all-too-human relationship. If we are to benefit from this radical transformation, it is vital that we understand the new mechanics of how trust is built, managed, lost and repaired. In Who Can You Trust?, Botsman provides a detailed map of this uncharted landscape - and explores what's next for humanity.

    Story
    "Silk Road to block chain"

    This is a fantastic book and an incredibly thought provoking study of trust and the way it is developing in the modern digital world. How we build trust with people we never see and how we rely on the opinions of others to make choices of our own. In fact if you decide to get this book as a result of my review then you may find this book a fascinating commentary on your behaviour!
