Talking to Strangers
- What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know
- Written 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.

By far the best audio book I have heard. Loved the content, but also loved how the audio book was made- with the excerpts of the actual interviews of the people in the story.
The content itself is thought provoking. Dealing with strangers is an inescapable part of life, yet so few of us give it any real thought. We think we are pretty good at summing people up. Malcolm Gladwell shows us how how wrong we often are.
