Through the topics of cooperation, tacky gifts, book cutting, collectivism in an individualist culture, and raising children not to be a-holes, they talk about their lives, inspired by the words of Yuval Harari. Discussion Points: The writing style/storytelling Can you walk and read at the same time? Cutting big books in half to make them easier to carry around The tackiest gifts ever Cooperation amongst large groups of people - how the human race is different than other animals Raising children not to be a-holes, teaching them to share Community versus individualism - collectivism in an individualist culture How every action and behaviour has a ripple effect Mentioned on this episode of Book Interrupted: Book Interrupted Website  Book Interrupted YouTube Channel Book Interrupted Facebook Book Club Group Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life: Life-Changing Tools for Healthy Relationships by Marshall B.

Talking to Strangers Episode 4

The Book Interrupted women continue their conversation on “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell.  “Friends”, TV, The Stanley Milgram Experiment, authoritative figures, body language, and attractiveness - how do all these things influence our perceptions of strangers and our interactions with them? Discussion Points: Error in the Friends section - it’s Monica not Rachel! Does your face show emotion the way that other people expect you to react? How has TV affected how we interpret emotion on strangers’ faces? Does anyone else’s nose tingle when other people touch their nose? Experiments to see how people react to shocking situations  The Stanley Milgram Experiment Do you listen to authority figures, even against your own judgment? Body language and attractiveness - how much do they impact our perceptions of others?
