Reviewed in the United States on September 12, 2019
The underlying storyline of Sandra Bland was very myopic. Wasn’t Bland also talking to a stranger? Did she not also have some defaults to her truth that made her combative? Not to Gladwell. Very liberal perspective that doesn’t account for 2 sided conversation. We’re all talking to strangers. And we all have the responsibility to be understood and to understand the other. Not just gun owners or policemen or men.
Oh well this reviewer is just being defensive. He’s “triggered”. Yes. And in this entire book, the triggering party is the one with the responsibility to communicate in a different way. So... perhaps the author should consider how he talks to strangers.
