Talking to Strangers
- What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know
- By: Malcolm Gladwell
- Narrated by: Malcolm Gladwell
- Length: 8 hrs and 42 mins
The routine traffic stop that ends in tragedy. The spy who spends years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon. The false conviction of Amanda Knox. Why do we so often get other people wrong? Why is it so hard to detect a lie, read a face or judge a stranger's motives? Through a series of encounters and misunderstandings - from history, psychology and infamous legal cases - Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual adventure into the darker side of human nature, where strangers are never simple and misreading them can have disastrous consequences.
Classic Gladwell please do not leave it another 6 years

Well researched, thoughtful, intelligent and interesting perspective on human interactions. Like a crime investigation deconstructing the events and reconstructing them. Then providing a different and more realistic view of what actually happened. Could not stop listening.
