Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know
Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know, Malcolm Gladwell uses a structure that has entertained readers of his earlier books. He takes a sociological nugget, in this case our inability to detect truth or deception when we encounter strangers. He selects an example, tells a story, then builds his case with multiple ways of looking at the issue. I listened to the audiobook which contains special features that come across as a mix of podcast and text. As always, Gladwell is observant, thoughtful and knows how to engage readers.
