About the Book: When Strangers Meet: How People You Dont Know Can Transform
Part of the TED series: When Strangers Meet Our lives are increasingly insular.
We are in a hurry, our heads are down, minds elsewhere, we hear only the voices
we already recognize and rarely take the effort to experience something or
someone new. When Strangers Meet argues for the pleasures and transformative
possibilities of talking to people you dont know. Talking to a stranger pulls
you into a shared humanity, its a source of creative energy, it opens your
world, it cements your relationship to the places you live and work and play,
