Now that practically everybody seems to be spoiling for a fight, I have found Malcolm Gladwell's Talking to Strangers invaluable. Through a series of real-life stories, the Canadian journalist reminds us that even the sweetest strangers can be psychopaths, while the angry ones more often than not deserve our sympathy. His moral - to approach new people with caution and humility - has become my motto. -- Marcus Field * Evening Standard * The compelling, haunting, tragic stories accumulate into something greater, and resonate long after you put the book down * James McConnachie, Sunday Times Book of the Year * Gladwell's new book looks set to cause another stir with its exploration of why ordinary human encounters sometimes end in catastrophes. * Radio Times * Malcolm Gladwell made his name bringing intellectual sparkle to everyday subjects, and his new book - about how strangers talk to each other - is no exception. -- Sean O'Hagan * Observer * Taut, provocative, smart . . . Gladwell's cool, playful intelligence has made him one of our leading public thinkers * Ian Leslie * Fascinating... you should read the book. Not only will it change the way you see and approach strangers, the precision with which he analyses the incident is one of the most powerful and damning indictments you'll read of race relations in American society. -- Sathnam Sanghera * The Times Magazine *.
