Review “Malcolm Gladwell has made a career of writing books that drive the
cultural conversation. His latest offers a provocative take on what close
encounters between strangers have to teach us, and how we can get better at
reading each other’s signals. Talking to Strangers is a must-read. It
investigates why we so often misconstrue others’ intentions and how those
errors can have unfortunate, even catastrophic, consequences…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…You’re touching on so many
profound themes-themes that are especially urgent now when the world seems so
topsy-turvy…Reading this book changed me.”―Oprah Winfrey, O, The Oprah
Magazine”Gladwell brilliantly argues that we should stop assuming, realize no
one’s transparent and understand that behavior is tied to unseen
circumstances. Powerful advice on truly getting to know others.”―People, Book
of the Week”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…The topic–and Mr. Gladwell’s message
that we should all approach strangers ‘with caution and humility’–has
fortuitous timing, given a political climate in which we can hardly stand to
interact with people who watch a different cable network.”―Amy Chozick, New
York Times”Malcolm 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”The latest
intellectually stimulating book from the acclaimed author. Every few years,
journalist Gladwell assembles serious scientific research on oddball yet
relevant subjects and then writes a bestseller. Readers expecting another
everything-you-think-you-know-is-wrong page-turner will not be
disappointed…Another Gladwell tour de force.”―Kirkus Reviews (starred
review)”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. The stranger is not easy; she is never as transparent
as we believe. Gladwell’s case studies are thrilling.”―Maggie Taft, Booklist”A
thoughtful treatise…Gladwell writes in his signature colorful, fluid, and
accessible prose…Both fascinating and topical.”―Publishers Weekly”Gladwell
presents an intriguing analysis of what far too often goes wrong when
strangers meet, diving deeply into controversial public incidents.”―Dale
Farris, Library Journal”One of the leading intellectuals of his age.”―Zoomer
