In this insightful and entertaining book, Schneier weaves together ideas from across the social and biological sciences to explain how society induces trust. He shows the unique role of trust in facilitating and stabilizing human society. He discusses why and how trust has evolved, why it works the way it does, and the ways the information society is changing everything. - Publisher.

This book is an introduction to societal structures of trust and security. Much of the content, to me, was either not new or obvious. If you haven't done much exploration of the subject already, then you will get a good start with this book.
