About Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell
Most of us believe that we understand other people. We believe that, when we meet someone, speak with them, shake their hand, look into their eyes, we can get a decent understanding of who they are and what they’re thinking. We believe that a small amount of personal knowledge about a person provides us with a lot of insight into their character. That first meeting, that job interview, the first date gives us some or all of the information we need to make determinations about long-term compatibility.
But we’re wrong, says Malcom Gladwell. Strangers are more complicated than that. In bestseller Talking to Strangers, Gladwell offers a detailed and compelling exploration of our interactions with strangers, and why they frequently go so poorly, often with disastrous results.
