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.

A Podcast Quality Audiobook
Malcolm Gladwell brings the charm of his podcast, Revisionist History, to this wonderful book by letting us listen to audio clips of interviews, speeches and talks he has with the people that appear in this book. As a fan of his podcast, it was like listening to a 9 hour episode.
Observe as Gladwell giddily dives deep into the thing he does best - be a student of people. His keen observations, backed up with science are a fantastic way to gain insights into why humans are the wonderfully complex creatures we are.
A must listen
