Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know by Malcolm Gladwell.

Talking to Strangers Book Cover

Malcom Gladwell offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers- and why they often go wrong. Talking to Strangers is 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. A Best book of the Year: The Financial Times, Bloomberg, and Chicago Tribune.
