Review of "Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know" on 'GoodReads'

5 stars

This book is about miscommunication, and our inability to interact well with people we are not familiar with. I don’t think I grasped the nuance of the central thesis here, but I still enjoyed the book. This is a “ripped from the headlines” sort of thing, and you’ll recognize a lot of the main subjects, even if you aren’t American – Sandra Bland, Amanda Knox, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Chandler & Monica, Bernie Madoff, etc. Note also that the audiobook version is also wonderful (better, probably), as it combines music, audio from actual interviews and news clips with the author’s narration of the text.
