<b>A FINANCIAL TIMES BEST BOOK OF 2019</b><b><br /></b><b>Malcolm Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller <i>Outliers</i>, offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers -- and why they often go wrong.</b><br />How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn't true?<br />While tackling these questions, Malcolm Gladwell was not solely writing a book for the page. He was also producing for the ear. In the audiobook version of <i>Talking to Strangers</i>, you'll hear the voices of people he interviewed--scientists, criminologists, military psychologists. Court transcripts are brought to life with re-enactments. You actually hear the contentious arrest of Sandra Bland by the side of the road in Texas. As Gladwell revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff, the trial of Amanda Knox, and the suicide of Sylvia Plath, you hear directly from many of the players in these real-life tragedies. There's even a theme song - Janelle Monae's "Hell You Talmbout."<br />Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don't know. And because we don't know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.

<b>Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC!</b><br /><br /><b>"An irresistibly addictive tour of the human condition."--Kirkus, <i>starred review</i></b><br /><br /><b>"Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing."--Katie Couric</b><br /><br /><b>"This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book."--Arianna Huffington, Founder, <i>Huffington Post</i> and Founder & CEO, Thrive Global</b><br /><br /><b>"Wise, warm, smart, and funny.

The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of顱fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.<br /><br />As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients' lives -- a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can't stop hooking up with the wrong guys -- she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell.<br /><br />With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.<br /><br /><i>Maybe You Should Talk to Someone</i> is rev顱olutionary in its candor, offering a deeply per顱sonal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly reveal顱ing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

<p>聽</p><br /><p>聽</p><b>Is there a science to love? </b> <br /><br /> In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory-the most advanced relationship science in existence today-can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many bestselling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships-until now. <br /><br /> Attachment theory owes its inception to British psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who in the 1950s examined the tremendous impact that our early relationships with our parents or caregivers has on the people we become. Also central to attachment theory is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship with one or more individuals is embedded in our genes. <br /><br /> In <i>Attached</i>, Levine and Heller trace how these evolutionary influences continue to shape who we are in our relationships today. According to attachment theory, every person behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways: <br /><br /> *ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back. <br /><br /> *AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness. <br /><br /> *SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving. <br /><br /> <i>Attached</i> guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mates) follow. It also offers readers a wealth of advice on how to navigate their relationships more wisely given their attachment style and that of their partner. An insightful look at the science behind love, <i>Attached</i> offers readers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.

<p><b>The book that started the Quiet Revolution<br /></b><br />At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts鈥擱osa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak鈥攖hat we owe many of the great contributions to society.聽<br /><br />In <i>Quiet, </i>Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts鈥攆rom a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, <i>Quiet </i>has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.<br /><br />Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader鈥檚 guide and bonus content</p>

<p><strong>Iconic couples鈥?therapist and bestselling author of聽<em>Mating in Captivity</em>聽Esther Perel returns with a provocative look at relationships through the lens of infidelity.</strong></p><p>An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet, this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. What are we to make of this time-honored taboo鈥攗niversally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat鈥攅ven those in happy marriages? Why does an affair hurt so much? When we say infidelity, what exactly do we mean? Do our romantic expectations of marriage set us up for betrayal? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage? Perel weaves real-life case stories with incisive psychological and cultural analysis in this fast-paced and compelling book.</p><p>For the past ten years, Perel has traveled the globe and worked with hundreds of couples who have grappled with infidelity. Betrayal hurts, she writes, but it can be healed. An聽affair聽can even be the doorway to a new marriage鈥攚ith the same person. With the right approach, couples can grow and learn from these tumultuous experiences, together or apart.</p><p>Affairs, she argues, have a lot to teach us about modern relationships鈥攚hat we expect, what we think we want, and what we feel entitled to. They offer a unique window into our personal and cultural attitudes about love, lust, and commitment. Through examining illicit love from multiple angles, Perel invites readers into an honest, enlightened, and entertaining exploration of modern marriage in its many variations.</p><p>Fiercely intelligent,聽<em>The聽State聽of聽Affairs</em>聽provides a daring framework for understanding the intricacies of love and desire. As Perel observes, 鈥淟ove is messy; infidelity more so. But it is also a window, like no other, into the crevices of the human heart.鈥?lt;/p>
