Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

As part of his research, Ulrich Boser went skydiving
to see if the experience would increase his levels
of oxytocin, the so-called “trust hormone.”

Review

“While the headlines often highlight differences, humans want to trust others. Our brains are hardwired to do so; they secrete Oxytocin, a neurotransmitter that increases the bonding urge… The bottom line: Oxytocin aside, trust remains a choice that builds from considering and understanding the perspectives of others.” —Jim Pawlak, Biz Books Reviews

“Why should we all take a leap of faith into the world of trust? Ulrich Boser provides the profound answer in this thorough, insightful analysis of the psychology of social connectedness where we weigh communal interest over self-interest, selflessness over selfishness, giving to others over being a taker.” —Philip Zimbardo, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus at Stanford University and author of The Lucifer Effect

“A marvelous book: smart, engrossing and compulsively readable. Everyone talks about loss of trust in government and institutions, and finally there is a book that explores the issue in a meaningful way—and provides real ideas on how to restore trust. A significant contribution to our understanding of what builds civil society.” —Ken Stern, former Chief Executive Officer of NPR and author of With Charity for All

“Twenty years after Americans were warned about ‘Bowling Alone,’ Ulrich Boser takes us from cutting-edge psychology labs to the villages of Rwanda to better understand who we trust, how we decide, and why it matters. In an increasingly atomized world, The Leap charts a path towards stronger human bonds.” —John Podesta, former Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton

“Ulrich Boser examines one of the most crucial questions facing our nation today: Can we work together? In this vitally important book, Boser details the corrupting force that income inequality has had on social cohesion. For all those concerned about our nation’s public policy, this book is a critical read.” —Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress
