Summary
Brought to you by Penguin.

The highly anticipated new book from Malcom Gladwell, host of the chart-topping podcast Revisionist History.

With original archival interviews and musical scoring, this enhanced audiobook edition of Talking to Strangers brings Gladwell's renowned storytelling to life in his unparalleled narrating style.

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.

No one challenges our shared assumptions like Malcolm Gladwell. Here he uses stories of deceit and fatal errors to cast doubt on our strategies for dealing with the unknown, inviting us to rethink our thinking in these troubled times.

A scorching 'hot take' on the human condition. 'Talking with strangers' has left me with an appetite for considerate communication and a handful of answers to some of life's infinite obscure questions.

Today was a sad day. This audio book is now finished. No longer will I be subjected to compelling discussion that drastically shifting my opinion from left to right. The production values sets the Benchmark for other books.

Well narrated book by Malcolm Gladwell. Stories told offer insightful understanding into our relationships with other people. I kept wanting more. Slightly disappointed in the end.

The book was very insightful and has shifted the way I view human behaviour and individuals. It highlights a lot of relevant issues that are especially relevant in today’s society, accompanied with historical stories and events to explain each phenomenon in a captivating way.

What a brilliant way to bring to light some core issues of the current society! The writting was very clever and I particularly appreciated the use of real life events to explain these complex issues. This book is definitely a must read!

A consuming listen that I hope to repeat many times over. A contemporary, engaging understanding of what the modern audiobook should be.
