Talking to Strangers What We Should Know About the People We Don’t KnowTW detailed descriptions f rape and pedophiliaIf it were possible to give a book negative stars this would be a 10 for meMalcolm Gladwell is incredibly influential From books to podcasts to TED talks he seems to be everywhere and his story based approach reaches a large number Sorceleur, Tome 2: L'pe de la providence of people who don t uestion his credentials as a journalist with no scientific training who writes about science I enjoyed Blink and Outliers despite theften dodgy claims Gladwell makes based After We Collided (After, on studies that are small poorly designed andor not replicable The man does know how to create an engaging narrative and create aha moments that excite the reader And after all he admits he isn t a scientist but instead a storyteller who uses research to augment the stories who places the stories in the lead and the science in a supporting role rather than thether way aroundOkay I hear you shrugging So what Well in Talking to Strangers Gladwell brings his folksy approach and tendency to present his Un point c'est tout opinions as truth to a painful and horrifying subject sexual abuse The book exploresur inability to tell when people are lying especially when they are confident and lack Sarasota obvious tells eg shifty eyes covered mouth Gladwell suggests most people default to truth when interacting with strangers and that considerable evidence is needed before we believe someone is lying Moreover he feels this approach is vital tour social compact By contrast he believes approaching people with distrust as a default such as police The French Diet officers who see every person as a potential suspect would make normal functioning impossible In making his case Gladwell describes two casesf serial pedophiles who Les illuminations de la Mecque : Al-Futht al-Makkiyya operated for decades before being caught Larry Nassar the doctor who molested young female gymnasts in his careften in the presence f their parents and Jerry Sandusky the coach who sodomized young boys in his sports programs and foster care Reading these stories which described how the young victims were raped and assaulted in page after page f excruciating detail made me want to scrub my brain with bleach And then we get to Gladwell s conclusion that Otopia our inability to detect lies means that we should not be too harsh in judging the various adults who failed to protect children who were being sexually assaulted Here s how he puts it those victimized by default to truth deserveur sympathy not Papa, viens me chercher ! our censureTo clarify the victims in this sentence are not the children who were raped but the adults parents teachers employersf pedophiles who ignored warning signs and suspicious behavior for years People who buried evidence People who dismissed the discomfort expressed by the children who lacked the vocabulary to explain the horror Pangkat Papaya of being violated by an adult in a positionf trustGraham Spanier the former Penn President was told by Lenore onef his wn employees that Sandusky was seen in the shower with a young boy at night in deserted gym facilities with his body right up against the child He did not go to the police He did not call Child Services He accepted the suggestion from another staff member that Sandusky was just horsing around and let the matter drop Gladwell has a lot f sympathy for Spanier stating people liked Grahman Spanier It s why he had such a brilliant career It s why you and I would want to work for him We want Graham Spanier as L'art du massage tantrique et cachemirien our President We think we wantur guardians to be alert to every suspicion We blame them when they default to truthwithout stopping to consider the conseuences Le Savant fou (Adèle Blanc-Sec of those actions Actually no I don t want Spanier as my university President Or anywhere except in a prison cell Nor do I think any conseuences could be worse than a society that allows children to be abused A little distrustr a trust but verify approach is a good thing when the vulnerable are involvedGladwell also spends uite a bit Sugar of time throwing doubtn the stories f the boys victimized by Sandusky noting contradictions and inconsistencies Gladwell is not a trained psychologist psychiatrist r a trauma abuse counselor He has zero experience in dealing with the victims UN ORGASME MEMORABLE: Nouvelle rotique of sexual abuse Contradictory stories are common in casesf child molestation as the victims Drinking at the Movies often try to repressr justify their abuse Gladwell did not personally know any Sluts in Training - Part 1 of the children involved It s unclear if he knows anyone who has suffered from sexual abuse Yet he feels it is appropriate to suggest that the victims were lyingr wrong and that Spanier was mistreated for being too trusting Later in the book he defends rapists including Brock Turner In case the name rings a bell that was the frat guy who undressed fingered and tried to rape an unconscious woman behind a dumpster Call Down the Hawk (Dreamer, only to be scaredff by two Aufladen - Abfahren other students Gladwell feels that alcohol and mixed signals are mainly responsible for rape Brock s victim calls for sensitively trainingn college campuses to help men learn to respect women and says that while to help men learn to respect women and says that while drinking was a factor in what happened it was not the reason for her rape Her powerful King Oil

immature nineteen year ld to do that in the hyper sexualized chaos f a frat party is an invitation to disasterNot raping someone is a hard task Gladwell acknowledges harm was done but he also asks

to address assaultn campus But a good man doesn t rape a women regardless Three Gone Cold (Sandy Brown Thriller of how much he has been drinking At best limiting alcohol might deter monsters like Brock by getting them to think about the possible conseuencesf their actions eg jailReading this book was like wading through a sewer The fact that someone with Gladwell s influence is using his
