Books I read 3- “Talking to Strangers”

3. “Talking to strangers” by Malcolm Gladwell / Topic: psychology?
I’ve read all of Gladwell’s books, starting with “Outliers” and I loved them all. This one was a little bit “sad’/ disturbing to me, but that’s life, isn’t it? Audiobook was really amazing, Gladwell made sure not to make it too ‘dry’ as some of the facts can be dense. He uses music and original recordings when possible. As usually, he presents real stories and explains its psychological reasoning.
Very interesting, but not the best as a ‘bed night read’. Definitely forces you to think how you view people around you, how you interact with strangers.
If you haven’t read anything by Gladwell, maybe start with one of his previous books, eg. Outliers or Blink.
