In July 2015, a young black woman named Sandra Bland was pulled over for a
minor traffic violation in rural Texas. Minutes later she was arrested and jailed.
Three days later, she committed suicide in her cell. What went wrong? Talking
to Strangers is all about what happens when we encounter people we don't
know, why it often goes awry, and what it says about us.
How do we make sense of the unfamiliar? Why are we so bad at judging
someone, reading a face, or detecting a lie? Why do we so often fail to 'get'
other people?
Through a series of puzzles, encounters and misunderstandings, from littleknown
stories to infamous legal cases, Gladwell takes us on a journey through
the unexpected. You will read about the spy who spent years undetected at the
highest levels of the Pentagon, the man who saw through the fraudster Bernie
Madoff, the suicide of the poet Sylvia Plath and the false conviction of Amanda
Knox. You will discover that strangers are never simple.
No one shows us who we are like Malcolm Gladwell. Here he sets out to
understand why we act
