En glimrende bog om tillid og om hvordan det får samfundet til at hænge sammen. I alt fald får mangel på tillid et samfund til at smuldre helt, som fx Sovjetunionens fald beviser.

Vi opfører os typisk som om vi er i en gruppe på ca 150 personer, som før eller siden får det at vide hvis vi laver en svinestreg.
