When the perfect couple’s marriage is threatened by the appearance of a sultry fashion model, are there any right choices? Penny Vincenzi, internationally bestselling author of No Angel, has dazzled readers with her intricately crafted novels for nearly twenty years. She unleashes her signature narrative prowess once more in her latest novel, A Question of Trust. In 1950s London, Tom Knelston is charismatic, charming, with a passion for politics and reform. He is a man with ambition—and someone to watch. His wife Alice, a former nurse, shares his ideals. It seems they are the perfect match. Then, out of the blue, Tom meets an old childhood acquaintance, the beautiful and unhappily married Diana Southcott, a fashion model. In many ways, she is everything Tom fights against, but she is also irresistible and so, flirting with danger, they embark on an affair that is potentially damaging to both. And when his child becomes ill, Tom is forced to make decisions about his principles, his career, his marriage, and, most of all, his love for his child. A Question of Trust is a vintage Penny Vincenzi novel: rich in characterization, life-changing decisions, love, desire, and conflict. “Seductively readable” (The Times), it is a luscious, page-turning read about a precarious situation—both utterly compelling and hugely rewarding.

Onora O'Neill's timely new work highlights a great paradox: in order to inspire trust, we, the public, require more accountability, more transparency. But the more we learn about our financial institutions, our politicians, our medical practitioners, our clergy, and many other people who have a direct effect on our lives, the less willing we are to trust them. Their word is doubted, their motives questioned. Whether real or perceived, this crisis of trust has a debilitating impact on society and democracy. Can trust be restored by making people and institutions more accountable in a modern democracy? Or do complex systems of accountability and control damage trust? O'nora O' Neill challenges current approaches to accountability, investigates sources of deception in our society and re-examines questions of press freedom. |L O'Neill presented these ideas this spring as a part of the BBC Radio 4's reith Lectures. Established in 1948, the Reith Lectures are presented to advance public understanding about significant issues of contemporary interest. Previous lecturers include Bertrand Russel, Robert Oppenheimer, and J.K. Galbraith.

Saskia thought Jaiden was flirting with her when she invited her to work 'undercover' and she's frustrated that their private investigations have never wandered even remotely close to the erotic. Neither Jaiden nor Saskia have had much luck with love. But when they finally kiss, it feels different... passionate... and unconditional. Then a major problem comes crashing into Jaiden's life and her first instinct is to hide it. And as secrets and lies start to spiral out of control, Saskia questions whether she should ever have trusted Jaiden with her already wounded heart.

The relationship between the United States and China will be of critical importance to the world throughout the twenty-first century. In the West China’s rise is often portrayed as a threat and China seen in negative terms. This book explores the dynamics of this crucial relationship. It looks in particular at what causes an international relationship to be perceived negatively, and considers what can be done to reverse this, arguing that trust is a key factor. It goes on to discuss US and Chinese rhetoric and behaviour in three key areas – climate change, finance, and international security. The book contends that, contrary to much US rhetoric, China’s actions in these areas is often much more flexible and accommodating than the US position, and that the Chinese are much more knowledgeable about, and understanding and appreciative of, the United States than vice versa.

The Thin Book of® Trust is a small book about a very important subject. A lot has been written about trust: about what it is and what it can do for people, families, companies, communities and countries. Often, good work is being sabotaged by interpersonal conflict, political infighting, paralysis, stagnation, apathy, or cynicism. Almost always, one can trace these problems to a breakdown in trust. It not only kills good work, it also inevitably creates some degree of misery, annoyance, fear, anger, frustration, resentment, and resignation. By contrast, in successful companies where people are innovative, engage in productive conflict and debate about ideas, and have fun working together, one can find strong trusting relationships. Having the trust of those you work with is too important not to be intentional about building and maintaining it. The goal of The Thin Book of® Trust is to give you enough clear and concrete language to understand and address issues of trust at work and includes some sample scripts. You will learn how to build and maintain strong trusting relationships with others, and repair trust when it is broken, by being intentional and consistent in your language and actions. Understanding and consistently demonstrating trustworthy language and behavior will help you earn and keep the trust of the people you work with. The author, Charles Feltman, is a coach with many years of experience working with all kinds of people and organizations. For this reason, he's able to define trust in a way that I hope you will find eminently useful. First he defines trust as choosing to risk making something you value vulnerable to another person's actions. He then breaks the concept of trust down into 4 assessments. That means that instead of labeling someone as untrustworthy, you can dig deeper and define which of the 4 assessments you are struggling with. The 4 assessments are: SincerityReliabilityCompetenceCareThis book includes a pull-out card with the 4 distinctions of Trust. You'll find it very useful in stimulating a conversation about Trust. If your training budget doesn't allow for a purchase of the Trust book for everyone, give everyone this card instead
