Talking to Strangers - Malcolm Gladwell

Although Gladwell doesn’t address it in macro, the premise of this book is about asking the question “and”. What if we hold the officer responsible **and** taught police how to talk to strangers? What if we "taught men how to respect women" **and** " to drink less". In a true Socratic fashion Gladwell sows more doubt than answers going case study by case study to show the uncomfortable complexities of dealing with strangers. He brings to the forefront the intrinsic costs we all have bear for our decisions regarding it.

I love the audiobook, while not as production heavy as Revisionist History, it makes the book and easier listen by separating the narrators voice from the subjects and littering bits of context throughout the story.
