THE POWER OF STRANGERS The Benefits of Connecting in a Suspicious World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jonathan Todd Ross

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

With his enthusiasm and considerable vocal charm, narrator Jonathan Todd Ross brings to life this timely discussion of the joys of talking with strangers. His likable voice will make listeners smile as they listen to this pleasing combination of evolutionary history, social science, and the often heartwarming experiences of the author and others as they reached out to talk with strangers. Journalist Joe Keohane is especially persuasive as he explains how social contact, even with people we don't agree with, can improve the way we think about ourselves and the world. Buoyed by a performance that is full of energy and clarity, this is a well-documented invitation to rethink our habit of avoiding strangers and limiting what we share with them. T.W.
