Ulrich Boser Biography:
Ulrich Boser is a Senior Fellow at American Progress; he examines education and other social issues.
Previously, Boser was a contributing editor for U.S. News & World Report. His articles have been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.
Boser is working on a book about learning. He is also the author of The Leap: The Science of Trust and Why It Matters.
We’re not supposed to trust others. Look at the headlines. Read the blogs. Study the survey data. It seems that everyone is wary, that everyone is just looking out for themselves. But a sense of social trust and togetherness can be restored.
In The Leap, best-selling author Ulrich Boser shows how the emerging research on trust can improve our lives, rebuild our economy, and strengthen society. As part of this engaging and deeply reported narrative, Boser visits a radio soap opera in Rwanda that aims to restore the country’s broken trust, profiles the man who brought honesty to one of the most corrupt cities in Latin America, and explains how a college dropout managed to con his way into American high society. Boser even goes skydiving to see if the experience will increase his levels of oxytocin, the so-called “trust hormone.”
A powerful mix of hard science and compelling storytelling, The Leap explores how we trust, why we trust, and what we can all do to deepen social trust. The book includes insightful policy recommendations along with surprising new data on the state of social trust in America today.
He also wrote, “The Gardner Heist: The True Story of the World’s Largest Art Theft,” which was a Boston Globe bestseller and USA Today called “a public service.”
Boser has served as a commentator for CNN, National Public Radio, and The New York Times. He graduated from Dartmouth College and lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife and two daughters.
