Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know.
‘Compelling, haunting, tragic stories . . . resonate long after you put the book down‘ James McConnachie, Sunday Times Book of the Year.
- How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation?
- 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?
While tackling these questions, Malcolm Gladwell was not solely writing a book for the page. He was also producing for the ear.
In this stunning book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of “outliers”–the best and the brightest people, the most famous and the most successful. In addition, he asks the question: what makes high-achievers different?
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking is a revolution in understanding the mind. An art expert sees a ten-million-dollar sculpture and instantly spots it’s a fake. A marriage analyst knows within minutes whether a couple will stay together. A fire-fighter suddenly senses he has to get out of a burning building. A speed dater clicks with the right person…
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
This time, in Malcolm’s breakthrough first book, explore the science behind viral trends in business, marketing, and human behavior.
The Tipping Point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. E.g., a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, and a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate.
In this widely acclaimed bestseller, Malcolm explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon. Consequently it is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas.
David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants
Why do underdogs succeed so much more than we expect? How do the weak outsmart the strong? In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell, takes us on a scintillating and surprising journey through the hidden dynamics that shape the balance of power between the small and the mighty.
From the conflicts in Northern Ireland, through the tactics of civil rights leaders and the problem of privilege, Gladwell demonstrates how we misunderstand the true meaning of advantage and disadvantage. When does a traumatic childhood work in someone’s favour? How can a disability leave someone better off? And do you really want your child to go to the best school he or she can get into?
David and Goliath draw on the stories of remarkable underdogs, history, science, psychology, and Malcolm Gladwell’s unparalleled ability to make the connections others miss. It’s a brilliant, illuminating book that overturns conventional thinking about power and advantage.
