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.… (mais)

In the past, long enough ago that I barely remember reading them, I read two other Malcolm Gladwell books. I've always enjoyed reading books like this but as I've gotten older, I've been a bit more critical of pop-psych like books. However, I like reading these books and seeing the evidence that is presented, even if I sometimes disagree with the conclusions or want to do more research before forming an opinion. I think these books are good for giving me another lens to look at the world and the way people interact but I don't think they have to, nor should they attempt to, explain the way the whole world works and every single interaction but it can be a good tool for examining the world. I think this book was written very anyway. I read the last 270ish pages in a single day so clearly it kept me interested. I would recommend this book. If you've read books by Gladwell before and enjoyed them or if you haven't, I think you can get something informative out of this book. ( )

The idea is Gladwell-worthy and, in this book, he acknowledges where he gets much of his angle and base research (mostly from one source, he says). His storytelling ability is still superior to most, and the stories that he covers are still fresh enough to be compelling. And I don't think that he's wrong in some of his assumptions... sometimes.

Still. Some of the connections are not quite...there. The link between Bland and, say, the infamous Brock Turner incident* is tenuous at best and there are a couple of other points that don't seem to connect for me.

This lack of connection, to me, is tragic because Gladwell is an ideal investigator for many of these stories, particularly Bland's. He tells a story well. He is willing to look at things from a different angle. His mother is Jamaican, his father is British. If anyone had a stake in this argument and potentially had the ability to present himself as a neutral party in the (sadly) just-emerging spotlight I feel like it could be him. Not that he does a bad job--his summary final chapter is, I felt, one of the best--but there are sections that could have been more cohesive. So, it was good. But I feel like he could be better. And it left me rather depressed. But you can't always get [b:David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants|15751404|David and Goliath Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants|Malcolm Gladwell|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1391813567l/15751404._SX50_.jpg|21445709]... I would prefer a more uplifting topic though.

*Not to say that the chapter isn't fascinating in its own right. The stats and information about alcohol and the brain are absolutely astounding... and provide a solid argument for a return to prohibition. ( )

Interesting. A bit disturbing. Didn't love. But left some lasting impressions. ( )

I loved the use of source audioclips instead of quotations. Very immersive. ( )

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.
