Best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell has done much to bring the findings of social science into the public conversation, starting with "The Tipping Point," which examines the crucial moment a disease, trend or phenomenon explodes.
Gladwell's new book is called, "Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About The People We Don't Know."
In it, he dives into the unconscious forces rippling under some of the most high-profile disasters between people who didn't know each other, like Brock Turner, Sandra Bland, even Adolf Hitler.
Gladwell will speak at the Back Bay Events Center at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
