Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know by Malcolm Gladwell: Not what I was expecting at all in terms of how I was interpreting the title, this recent Gladwell book was an interesting read. I think I pulled something valuable out of it, but as with most of the author’s works, I find it hard to take him serious or believe what he writes because I feel like it lacks the necessary depth to make a compelling argument, or excludes a certain aspect regarding the discussion that would negate the premise he’s trying to deliver on. What I found most interesting from this read was the theory of, coupling—that a behaviour is linked to a specific context. I think I’ll follow-up on this a bit more.
