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 * A wonderful provocation which Gladwell delivers like no other, an awakening to just one of the fascinations that lie in ordinary human experience . . . as ever, Gladwell's genius is in the telling. * Spectator * Superb writing. Masterful... bears all the marks that have made Gladwell one of the most successful non-fiction authors of his generation. -- Pilita Clark * Financial Times * A dazzling book . . . Gladwell is a rock star of nonfiction . . . Stories are well selected and brilliantly told, ideas are slowly revealed until the reader arrives at a conclusion they didn't expect. Gladwell is advancing ideas and, sure, they are all open to challenge . . . but they are stimulating and convincing - and you won't regret a minute you spend mastering them * The Times * I love this book . . . reading it will actually change not just how you see strangers, but how you look at yourself, the news - the world. Reading this book changed me. * Oprah Winfrey *
