Show Notes

The Book Interrupted women begin their first conversation on their Series 6 book choice: “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari. Each member expresses individually how they feel either before reading or beginning to read “Sapiens”, then they continue the discussion into a group chat. 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.

Talking to Strangers Episode 3

The Book Interrupted women share their personal journals while reading “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell. So many things to talk about with this book in the group chat: default to truth, relationships, oppression, the Holy Fool and more.   Discussion Points: Personal journals The illusion of asymmetric insight - do you think you know more about someone else than they do about you? The Holy Fool Do you default to truth? Relationships and red flags - do you see the truth when there are signs that they are lying? Data versus interactions - how much does personal interaction change the way you interpret data? How does race and gender oppression affect sentencing and assessment of situations? Was this book upsetting to you? Group enhancements - do you follow the group? Love and marriage Mentioned on this episode of Book Interrupted: Book Interrupted Website  Book Interrupted YouTube Channel Book Interrupted Facebook Book Club Group Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know by Malcolm Gladwell Malcolm Gladwell Books Revisionist History Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari Untamed by Glennon Doyle ...
