How do we make sense of the unfamiliar? Why are we so bad at judging someone, reading a face, or detecting a lie? Why do we so often fail to 'get' other people? In a powerful and provocative exploration of why we so often misread other people, Gladwell takes us on a journey through the unexpected. From the spy who spent years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon, to the suicide of the poet Sylvia Plath, we discover that strangers are never simple.

Few have the ability to show us who we are like Malcolm Gladwell. So join him as he sets out to understand why we act the way we do, and how we all might know a little more about those we don't.

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of five international bestsellers: The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw, and David and Goliath. He is the host of the podcast Revisionist History and is a staff writer at The New Yorker.

Gladwell was named one of the 100 most influential people by Time magazine and one of the Foreign Policy's Top Global Thinkers.
