    Thanks so much for choosing me as winner in the giveaway I loved this book I always thought about the disparity of meeting someone who seemed so nice and someone you wanted to develop a friendship or relationship with, only to have an opposite view shortly after Did I misjudge Am I too picky, critical and judgmental Are they really a sociopath This book explains a lot of that thru mismatching, which is basically how someone appears at a given time as opposed to who they really are A Thanks so much for choosing me as winner in the giveaway I loved this book I always thought about the disparity of meeting someone who seemed so nice and someone you wanted to develop a friendship or relationship with, only to have an opposite view shortly after Did I misjudge Am I too picky, critical and judgmental Are they really a sociopath This book explains a lot of that thru mismatching, which is basi...

    Malcolm Gladwell s latest foray into human folly is its seemingly innate trust in strangers We assume strangers are transparent, and can take what they do and say at face value Sometimes we are wrong, but assuming everyone is evil is far worse Talking To Strangers focuses mostly on a number of very high profile criminal cases we are all likely to be familiar with They include the Amanda Knox case, the Jerry Sandusky case, the Brock Turner case, the Sandra Bland case, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Malcolm Gladwell s latest foray into human folly is its seemingly innate trust in strangers We assume strangers are transparent, and can take what they do and say at face value Sometimes we are wrong, but assuming everyone is evil is far worse Talking To Strangers focuses mostly on a number of very high profile criminal cases we are all likely to be familiar with They include the Amanda Knox case, the Jerry Sandusky case, the Brock Turner case, the Sandra Bland case, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, and the Bernie Madoff case Gladwell looks at them differently He looks at them not from simple guilt or innocence, but from the misread signals that have surrounded them The result can be a ruined life, prison or even death, unearned On the other side the investigator side , they can result in self delusion, missed opportunities and complete wastes of time achieving nothing It s an imperfection he exploits repeatedly throughout the book.It all hinges on the notion of tra...
