Publisher's Summary

Most relationship problems are essentially trust issues, explains psychotherapist David Richo. Whether it's fear of commitment, insecurity, jealousy, or a tendency to be controlling, the real obstacle is a fundamental lack of trust - both in ourselves and in our partner. Daring to Trust offers key insights and practical exercises for exploring and addressing our trust issues in relationships. Topics include:

How we learn early in life to trust others (or not to trust them)
Why we fear trusting
Developing greater trust in ourselves as the basis for trusting others
How to know if someone is trustworthy
Nave trust vs. healthy, adult trust
What to do when trust is broken
Ultimately, Richo explains, we must develop trust in four directions: toward ourselves, toward others, toward life as it is, and toward a higher power or spiritual path. These four types of trust are not only the basis of healthy relationships, they are also the foundation of emotional well-being and freedom from fear.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you like monotonous and boring, or want a book as a lullaby

Would you ever listen to anything by David Richo again?


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Incredibly bad narration. No inflection, no change in tone, no passion. Just one tone and dragged on.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. I couldn't pay attention long enough to grasp a single concept.

Any additional comments?

Please have a different person narrate this book. The topic seemed very interesting and I was very hopeful, but the narration was just incredibly insufferable.

Useful, seriously useful

I was looking for a structured way to learn about my recently acknowledged issues with trust, this book was perfect.
Personally it resonated with me and provided valuable insight into the reasons for the way I feel.
It also provided practical practise techniques which I have begun to employ and have made a significant (positive) impact on my relationship.
The anxiety that used to strike me about 'imaginary things' has almost entirely gone. I can manage things now.

I couldn't thank the author enough for putting the time into writing this book.
