This week, we cover the #1 New York Times Bestseller Talking To Strangers: What We Should Know About The People We Don’t Know by Malcom Gladwell.
And spoiler alert: this is not a book on how to make more friends, which Misty definitely thought it was!
Malcolm Gladwell is a Canadian journalist and author of five other New York Times bestsellers — The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw, and David and Goliath. He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in History from the University of Toronto, Trinity College, Toronto and has been on the staff of The New Yorker since 1996. Gladwell's books and articles often deal with the unexpected implications of research in the social sciences and make frequent and extended use of academic work, particularly in the areas of sociology, psychology, and social psychology. Gladwell has been included in the TIME 100 Most Influential People list and touted as one of Foreign Policy’s Top Global Thinkers.
