Smart, empowering, and easy to follow, Dreeke's manual should become a classic business--and personal--primer on the art of building trust. --Publishers WeeklyDreeke delivers a pragmatic, patriotic recipe for the key ingredient of leadership: trust. . . . A book of broad application with useful lessons for everyone from Girl Scouts to corporate masters to world leaders--and aspiring spies, too. --Kirkus Reviews As someone who has spent my career in the public and private intelligence fields, I feel this work provides great insights into the social psychological aspects of interpersonal dynamics from someone who has spent a lot of time in analyzing the criminal mind. A great insight for anyone with an interest in social psychology and how it impacts interpersonal relationships. --Phil Houston, CEO QVerity, 26 year veteran of CIA and co-author of the New York Times bestsellers Spy The Lie and Get The Truth To paraphrase Charles Dickens, it is the best of times, the worst of times, the age of wisdom, the age of foolishness, the spring of hope, the winter of despair. The Code of Trust is an antidote to the cynicism and fear of today. Robin Dreeke, my friend and colleague from the FBI, will take you on a delightful journey -- his journey--to more effective leadership at a time when we ache for such genuine skills in others. --Reid Meloy Ph.D., forensic psychologist, author, and consultant to The FBI The foundation of leadership is trust. Robin shares his successful and, sometimes, unsuccessful experiences as a United States Marine Corps officer and as a FBI behavioral analyst that allowed him to crack the code to build trusting relationships. This book is a must read for leaders and those who aspire to lead. --Jack Schafer, author of The Like Switch "Trust is one of life's biggest obstacles, which is why Robin Dreeke's book is so important.

Good content, very shoddy presentationReviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 February 2018
The content of the book is good and echoes the work of pioneers in the field like Hanns Scharff. However the writing style is unbelievably annoying and patronising. The book could have been 1/3rd of the length, which means that 2/3rds is pointless padding and rubbish metaphors.

Simple and powerful!Reviewed in Brazil on 28 March 2018
I heard about this book in a podcast about the subject in the Art of Manliness website. The author on the occasion was very impressive and assertive, which made me come after this book. I came with a high expectation of the quality of this work and it could claim 5 stars from me. The book is unique in a way, it tells the truth about trust and gives examples of the behavior the author recommends to reach the power of leadership and influence. Like the Extreme Ownership book, this one is very valuable for people with a strong mindset and strength of character to accept to come last when the time is the reap benefits and first when it comes to taking action and responsibilities, no matter the odds of success.
A Good BookReviewed in Canada on 2 June 2019
Well laid out, easy to read, practical ideas, methods, and solution. May take much practice and be difficult to implement. Probably good to keep as a reference guide as to how to best communicate with different personality types. Far better than "Presuasion by Robert Cialdini...that book was terrible.
