    The No.1 international bestselling author back with a powerful and provocative exploration of what our interactions with strangers tell us about who we are. In July 2015, a young black woman named Sandra Bland was pulled over for a minor traffic violation in rural Texas. Minutes later she was arrested and jailed. Three days later, she committed suicide in her cell. What went wrong? Talking to Strangers is all about what happens when we encounter people we don't know, why it often goes awry, and what it says about us. How do we make sense of the unfamiliar? Why are we so bad at judging someone, reading a face, or detecting a lie? Why do we so often fail to 'get' other people?

    The No.1 international bestselling author back with a powerful and provocative exploration of what our interactions with strangers tell us about who we are.

    In July 2015, a young black woman named Sandra Bland was pulled over for a minor traffic violation in rural Texas. Minutes later she was arrested and jailed. Three days later, she committed suicide in her cell. What went wrong? Talking to Strangers is all about what happens when we encounter people we don't know, why it often goes awry, and what it says about us. How do we make sense of the unfamiliar? Why are we so bad at judging someone, reading a face, or detecting a lie? Why do we so often fail to 'get' other people?

    Through a series of puzzles, encounters and misunderstandings, from little-known stories to infamous legal cases, Gladwell takes us on a journey through the unexpected. You will read about the spy who spent years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon, the man who saw through the fraudster Bernie Madoff, the suicide of the poet Sylvia Plath and the false conviction of Amanda Knox. You will discover that strangers are never simple.

    No one shows us who we are like Malcolm Gladwell. Here he sets out to understand why we act the way we do, and how we all might know a little more about those we don't.

    O avtorju

    -Malcolm Gladwell-

    Gladwell (1963) je že desetletje eden najbolj znanih publicistov na svetu (za znamenito revijo The New Yorker piše že od leta 1996), ki v svojih knjigah z izjemnim pripovednim talentom kombinira izsledke iz sociologije, ekonomije in psihologije z intrigantnimi zgodbami, s katerimi nas skuša spodbuditi k aktivnejšemu razmišljanju o našem pogledu na svet in vsakdanje dogajanje v njem. V svojem knjižnem prvencu Prelomna točka (2000, sl. prevod 2004) je tako razkrival, na kakšen način se, podobno kot nalezljive bolezni, širijo tudi ideje, navade, sporočila in izdelki. V svojem naslednjem delu Preblisk (2005, sl. prevod 2008) je posegel na področje intuitivnega mišljenja, raziskoval »moč mišljenja brez razmišljanja« in večplastno ilustriral, kako zelo gnetljiva snov so možgani, sposobni v nekaj trenutkih izluščiti intuitivno bistvo, ki racionalno postane očitno šele po dolgem času. V Prebojnikih iz leta 2008 (sl. prevod 2009) pa nam je skušal Gladwell z različnimi primeri in z različnih perspektiv pojasniti, kako in zakaj nekdo uspe, komu drugemu, čeprav morda obdarjenemu s podobnimi sposobnostmi, pa vse skupaj spodleti. Njegova knjiga Kaj je videl pes (What the Dog Saw) iz leta 2009 je bila kolekcija njegovih že objavljenih tekstov in v slovenščino ni prevedena. V svojem najnovejšem in navdihujočem delu David in Goljat, ki je pritegnilo veliko mednarodno pozornost, pa Gladwell širi svoje raziskovalno zanimanje še naprej od Prebojnikov in skuša dognati, zakaj včasih očitni antifavoriti uspejo zmagati v na prvi pogled povsem neenakopravnem boju.
