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

 

Fascinating . . . you should read the book . . . He’s tackling the dark side of human nature – what do we ever know about other people? — Sathnam Sanghera ― The Times Magazine

 

Now that practically everybody seems to be spoiling for a fight, I have found Malcolm Gladwell’s Talking to Strangers invaluable . . . His moral – to approach new people with caution and humility – has become my motto. ― Evening Standard

 

Taut, provocative, smart . . . Gladwell’s cool, playful intelligence has made him one of our leading public thinkers ― New Statesman

 

A book examining the ways we misinterpret or fail to communicate with one another could not feel more necessary . . . the page-turning urgency of a thriller — Chris Barton ― Los Angeles Times

 

 

Superb writing. Masterful . . . bears all the marks that have made Gladwell one of the most successful non-fiction authors of his generation. — Pilita Clark ― Financial Times

 

A dazzling book . . . Gladwell is a rock star of nonfiction . . . ideas are slowly revealed until the reader arrives at a conclusion they didn’t expect. Gladwell is advancing ideas and, sure, they are all open to challenge . . . but they are stimulating and convincing – and you won’t regret a minute you spend mastering them ― The Times

 

 

A wonderful provocation which Gladwell delivers like no other, an awakening to just one of the fascinations that lie in ordinary human experience . . . as ever, Gladwell’s genius is in the telling. ― Spectator

 

Malcolm Gladwell made his name bringing intellectual sparkle to everyday subjects, and his new book – about how strangers talk to each other – is no exception. — Sean O’Hagan ― Observer

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 one another 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.
