#9547 Another classical Gladwellian intellectual adventure! Offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers – and explains why they often go wrong. How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn’t true? Revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff, the trial of Amanda Knox, the Jerry Sandusky pedophilia scandal, and the death of Sandra Bland – throwing our understanding of these and other stories into doubt. Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don’t know. 400 pages. 2019. $30.00.
