Review: The Trust Protocol: The Key to Building Stronger Families, Teams, and Businesses
Mac Richard is a new author for me and looking at one of the online sites this may be his first book. So, I had no preconceived ideas of how or what he might have to say. Or how he would say it.
Richards says it straight and without too much of his own story intruding on what he has to say. Yes, he uses examples from his own life. It’s way easier than getting all the legal stuff you need these days to tell it any other way. That said he also includes quotes from others as needed. And that includes the Bible. He’s tracking pretty well as far as I can see. His pace matches his audience. He’s in Austin, remember. Lots to do and not so much time to do it. So the presentation is short and to the point.
What about the material? As I read it I found myself wondering why what seems so obvious needs said, and it hit me. It hasn’t and isn’t being said in the public arena like the “good old days.” Trust, honesty, mending fences? Nope. Write them off and go on is more the name of the game now. What is trust or honesty? It depends on the situation is the new way of thinking. So, to read that honesty is good, that trust or truth matters just might be something his audience is not that familiar with now. How it plays out in life, business, families is important. It can be called life changing.
Overall, I thought his presentation was sensitive, without compromising the central theme. There might be some ready to hear what he has to say. This book could be helpful in business dealings, too. Wonder if could be shelved in the business section as well? Or maybe in the self-help family advice sections?
I received this book from the publisher in return for a review.
