Reviews

  • 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
  • Fascinating . . . you should read the book . . . He's tackling the dark side of human nature - what do we ever know about other people?

    Sathnam Sanghera, The Times Magazine
  • Now that practically everybody seems to be spoiling for a fight, I have found Malcolm Gladwell's Talking to Strangers invaluable . . . His moral - to approach new people with caution and humility - has become my motto.

    Evening Standard
  • Taut, provocative, smart . . . Gladwell's cool, playful intelligence has made him one of our leading public thinkers

    New Statesman
  • A book examining the ways we misinterpret or fail to communicate with one another could not feel more necessary . . . the page-turning urgency of a thriller

    Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times
  • 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 . . . 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
  • 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
  • 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
