#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Malcolm Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Outliers, offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers–and why they often go wrong.
How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn’t true?
Talking to Strangers is a classically Gladwellian intellectual adventure, a challenging and controversial excursion through history, psychology, and scandals taken straight from the news. He revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff, the trial of Amanda Knox, the suicide of Sylvia Plath, the Jerry Sandusky pedophilia scandal at Penn State University, and the death of Sandra Bland—throwing our understanding of these and other stories into doubt. Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don’t know. And because we don’t know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world. In his first book since his #1 bestseller, David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell has written a gripping guidebook for troubled times.
Talking to Strangers is a must-read…I love this book… Reading it will actually change not just how you see strangers, but how you look at yourself, the news–the world…Reading this book changed me.―Oprah Winfrey, O, The Oprah Magazine
Powerful advice on truly getting to know others…Gladwell brilliantly argues that we should stop assuming, realize no one’s transparent and understand that behavior is tied to unseen circumstances.―People, Book of the Week
Gladwell has again delivered a compelling, conversation-starting read…At a time when the world feels intractably polarized, a book examining the varying ways we misinterpret or fail to communicate with one another could not feel more necessary…With a mix of reporting, research and a deft narrative hand, Gladwell illuminates these examples with the page-turning urgency of a paperback thriller.―Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times
Mr. Gladwell’s towering success rests on the moment when the skeptic starts to think that maybe we’re wrong about everything and maybe, just maybe, this Gladwell guy is onto something…Talking to Strangers is weightier than his previous titles.―Amy Chozick, New York Times
Gladwell’s case studies are thrilling…Chock-full of gripping anecdotes from the recent and forgotten past. He uses these riveting stories to offer up bite-size observations about how we engage with strangers.―Maggie Taft, Booklist
Another Gladwell tour de force…intellectually stimulating…Readers expecting another everything-you-think-you-know-is-wrong page-turner will not be disappointed.―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Both fascinating and topical…A thoughtful treatise…Gladwell writes in his signature colorful, fluid, and accessible prose.―Publishers Weekly
Gladwell interviews brilliant people, generates powerful insights, writes like an angel, and has earned a massive and admiring audience. He has a keen eye and a witty flair and he’s one of the best observationalists of a generation. Gladwell is a big-picture thinker who helps us make sense of the human condition.―Bob Brisco, WebMD Magazine
As always, with his narrative gift and eye for the telling detail, Gladwell peppers his work with unforgettable facts… He has immense gifts–a probing, original, questioning mind, an ability to dig up information others haven’t considered and tie it to a broader point. He has a narrative skill nonpareil.―Stephen Galloway, Hollywood Reporter
Engaging…Mr. Gladwell [presents] a mountain of quirky anecdotes and interesting research about our blunders with strangers, and why we make them…It’s fascinating to peek at these incidents through Mr. Gladwell’s psychological lens.―Leigh Anne Focareta, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
