So happy to have found this summary!!!

This one hour narration was the ideal resource. It provided the perfect combination of information and insight in a condensed, easy to understand version.

It has piqued my interest and I am interested in reading Gladwell’s original book to learn more talking to strangers. I am sure it will change my life and how I interact with people.

Looking for ghosts where there aren't any

If i was taking psychology courses towards a doctorate in psychiatry, this book being analyzed might be worth reading. Otherwise it's totally worth skipping over. This summary was well done and hit the highlights of the full book by Gladwell. However, it led me to think that Gladwell had some issues himself -- at the end of the summary, I came away thinking I really didn't want to know, or care to know, what everyone was thinking. There is always more than one side to a story/event. So things may not be as they seem.......but isn't that reality anyway? Everyone with their own interpretation of what they see, hear and the facts. Glad I only spent time with the summary instead of the entire book by Gladwell.
