Book of the Week: Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We...



We all need to talk to strangers, and we all suck at it! Do yourself a favor and read this book. I was hooked from the start. The relevance to todays social problems are front and center.

#

“The right way to talk to strangers is with caution and humility.”

― Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know

#⁠

“You believe someone not because you have no doubts about them. Belief is not the absence of doubt. You believe someone because you don’t have enough doubts about them.”

― Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know

#⁠

“To assume the best about another is the trait that has created modern society. Those occasions when our trusting nature gets violated are tragic. But the alternative - to abandon trust as a defense against predation and deception - is worse.”

― Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know

#⁠

“Because we do not know how to talk to strangers, what do we do when things go awry with strangers? We blame the stranger.”

― Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know

#⁠

“Don't look at the stranger and jump to conclusions. Look at the stranger's world.”

― Malcolm Gladwell, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know
