Talking to Strangers
by Malcolm Gladwell
THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
‘Compelling, haunting, tragic stories . . . resonate long after you put the book down’ James McConnachie, Sunday Times Book of the Year
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?
Using stories of deceit and fatal errors to cast doubt on our strategies for dealing with the unknown, 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.

Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know by Malcolm Gladwell is a number one New York Times bestseller that shows people how their tendencies to judge strangers based on the assumption of truth, facial expressions, and without context can be hazardous to decisions.

Gladwell uses extensive examples–stories, studies, and characters–to show how people interact with strangers as well as the chaos that doing so can cause. From Bernie Madoff to Sylvia Plath, a wide range of important people are used in Talking to Strangers to illustrate how deeply the way we talk to those we don’t know impacts us. Further, the author expertly weaves these stories into his book, interconnecting them and crafting his ideas with ease for the reader. The book builds up to show how the arrest and subsequent suicide of Sandra Bland was caused by people’s inability to appropriately talk to strangers.

Perfect for learning how humans are notoriously bad at judging strangers through the stories of high-profile cases like Sandra Bland and Amanda Knox.
Combining academic research in sociology and psychology with journalism, Malcolm Gladwell continuously writes books that attempt to change society’s perceptions of social issues. Talking to Strangers is no different and discusses the implications of judging others without truly knowing or understanding one another. The book’s introduction and final chapter discuss the case of Sandra Bland, an African-American woman stopped by a white highway patrolman in 2015 who was later found dead in her cell by apparent suicide. Bland was arrested after a typical traffic stop escalated into a confrontation, and her death “is what happens when a society doesn’t know how to talk to strangers,” according to Gladwell.
Throughout the book, Gladwell explores the nuances and intricacies of talking to strangers and shows how even experts trained in judgment and psychology lack the ability to predict how a stranger will behave. Covering high-profile cases like those of Sandra Bland and the Ponzi scheme of Bernie Madoff, Talking to Strangers will reveal how little you really know about the people that walk among you.
Never Talk to Strangers
by Irma Joyce
And up sneaks a camel with bony knees,
Remember this rule, if you please—
Never talk to strangers.
This book brilliantly highlights situations that children will find themselves in—whether they’re at home and the doorbell rings, or playing in the park, or mailing a letter on their street—and tells them what to do if a stranger (always portrayed as a large animal, such as a rhino) approaches. Colorful, ’60s-style “psychedelic” artwork and witty, lively rhyme clearly spell out a message about safety that empowers kids, and that has never been more relevant.
Irma Joyce wrote many Golden Books during the 1960s.
George Buckett was a popular children’s book illustrator during the 1960s.
Do Talk To Strangers
by Kerrie Phipps, Jane Pelusey
I Talk to Strangers
by Carole Chandler
Anyone can turn their life around.
Anyone can significantly transform the way people respond to them.
I know they can because I did.
I thought it might be fun to share some of my wonderful, wacky, and weird interactions with random people.
I talk to strangers because they talk to me, and tales of events closer to home have inspired my second book.
