Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don’t know. And because we don’t know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world

Each chapter of the book is devoted to understanding a different aspect of “the stranger problem.” Gladwell plucks stories from the news to illustrate his theories that:

  1. People are NOT easy to read.
  2. We are terrible at identifying lies.
  3. The human tendency to default to truth despite doubts is essential for survival of the species.

From Sandra Bland’s shocking death in a Texas jail cell to the downfall of Penn State football icon Jerry Sandusky to Brock Turner and the fraternity party to the Amanda Knox case—each story is a gripping tale of our failure as a society to separate lies from the truth.
