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:
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.

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.
Excellent book! Who would have thought a whole book could be written about one word "trust "! Only trouble I had with the narrator was that he was a little dry and monotone!
If you like monotonous and boring, or want a book as a lullaby
Incredibly bad narration. No inflection, no change in tone, no passion. Just one tone and dragged on.
No. I couldn't pay attention long enough to grasp a single concept.
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.
I had been struggling with trust anyone outside of my family or close friends after a partner in a past relationship was unfaithful. This book allowed me to understand what trust is, why is it so important, why I felt the way I did and how to overcome it at a DEEPER level. I no longer hold resentment on myself, him or the universe for my experience. This book has changed my life in how I view myself, others and experiences. It applies to all areas of life. I am a better elementary teacher because of this book.
Want to be vulnerable but not have people walk over you? This book offers good guidance.
