Inhaltsangabe

Malcolm Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of the number-one New York Times best seller Outliers, reinvents the audiobook in this immersive production of Talking to Strangers, a powerful examination of our interactions with people we don’t know. 

How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn't true? 

While tackling these questions, Malcolm Gladwell was not solely writing a book for the page. He was also producing for the ear. In the audiobook version of Talking to Strangers, you’ll hear the voices of people he interviewed - scientists, criminologists, military psychologists. Court transcripts are brought to life with re-enactments. You actually hear the contentious arrest of Sandra Bland by the side of the road in Texas. As Gladwell revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff, the trial of Amanda Knox, and the suicide of Sylvia Plath, you hear directly from many of the players in these real-life tragedies. There’s even a theme song - Janelle Monae’s “Hell You Talmbout”. 

Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don't know. And because we don't know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world. 

The audiobook edition of Talking to Strangers was an instant number-one best seller, and was one of the most pre-ordered audiobooks in history. It seamlessly marries audiobooks and podcasts, creating a completely new and real listening experience.

Excellent as always.

While not as deeply counterintuitive as some of his other books, the author was once again true to his style. I think this book is especially important today, because it goes against the reductionist good/bad grain of todays public discourse. Strangers have reasons for acting the way they do which are every bit as complex and nuanced as our own. We can help ourselves and society at large by recognizing this depth and appreciating it in analyzing our interactions with strangers.

Many nice stories about strangers, but no specific

I liked the performance with actors voices and tapes. But it didn't give me an idea how to talk with strangers.

Engaging read, though cryptic message

I don't feel I have understood much of the main topic, but it is a lovely listen all the way through.

Das Konzept von Coupling

Sehr interessant und aufschlussreich.
Der Zusammenhang von Ort auf Verhaltenmuster wird erklärt und noch mehr. Die Beispiele sind leider durchgehend düster und im Bereich der Kriminalität angesiedelt

I never wanted the book to finish

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I never wanted it to be over and wanted to keep on listening. It is eye opening that what we thought we knew may not be so. With this book I have learnt to look at others whether I know them well or not differently. This is a must read as well learn to tolerate and understand each other. Thank you Malcolm for this book.
