In this thoughtful treatise spurred by the 2015 death of African-American academic Sandra Bland in jail after a traffic stop, New Yorker writer Gladwell (The Tipping Point) aims to figure out the strategies people use to assess strangers-to "analyze, critique them, figure out where they came from, figure out how to fix them," in other words: to understand how to balance trust and safety. He uses a variety of examples from history and recent headlines to illustrate that people size up the motivations, emotions, and trustworthiness of those they don't know both wrongly and with misplaced confidence.… (més)

We usually assume the best of people we don't know and that usually works for us. Until it doesn't. ( )

Written in his typical storytelling style, Malcolm Gladwell examines a police incident to see why and how we struggle to understand and relate to strangers. It covers a lot of ground in many different areas. It is interesting and confronting in places. If you liked his previous books then this one is worth reading, ( )

What I love about Gladwell is his ability to distill these oddball human behaviors down to a solid, plausible explanation that you never hear mentioned. And he does it in such a way that you almost feel stupid for not seeing it yourself. It’s a good book. Worth a read. Definitely has Malcolm’s voice all over it. I could hear him reading it to me in my head as if in a podcast. If you’re a Gladwell fan, this one won’t disappoint. ( )

I am a big fan of Malcolm Gladwell's books, but I just had a hard time connecting with this one. Not only was the title a little misleading with what the book was actually about, but it just didn't sound like his regular voice or style which I have really related to in the past. I especially struggled with some of the stories he chose to dive into and his responses regarding sexual assault were quite astounding.

I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt but after reading Know My Name by Chanel Miller last month, I felt quite appalled when I read his discussion about Brock Turner. While I do think alcohol can cloud judgment (and consent) it does not take away from the fact that Brock Turner CHOSE to assault Chanel Miller.

Victim blaming is scary and real and it is disappointing that someone of this power and influence chose to blur the lines on this one. While some of this book was interesting, this really changed my feelings about it entirely. ( )

I would definitely obtain the enhanced audiobook. It's read by Gladwell with the original audio inserted (or actors reading lines) where needed. Really raises up the argument he presents and makes it stick in your mind. ( )

We start by believing. And we stop believing only when our doubts and misgivings rise to the point where we can no longer explain them away.
"Trying to get information out of someone you are sleep-depriving is sort of like trying to get a better signal out of a radio that you are smashing with a sledgehammer...."
In his book Why Torture Doesn't Work, neuroscientist Shane O'Mara writes that extended sleep deprivation "might induce some form of surface compliance"—but only at the cost of "long-term structural remodeling of the brain systems that support the very functions that the interrogator wishes to have access to."
And of every occupational category, poets have far and away the highest suicide rates—as much as five times higher than the general population.
Sherman crunched the numbers and found something that seemed hard to believe: 3.3 percent of the street segments in the city accounted for more than 50 percent of the police calls.
