We walk by hundreds if not thousands of trees on a routine basis but do we ever stop to consider what a tree is ? Peter Wohlleben does a tremendous job at conveying this abstract concept through chapters of engaging and entertaining dialogue. The relationship between humans and nature is one that has been vastly forgotten by today's culture and society but the lessons of this book do a great job at bringing some of our awareness back

Communication, vulnerability, boundaries, intimacy, independence - not just specific to maintaining and developing relationships but also integral to how we as individuals function with one another. This format is different than Mark's previous books but echos a lot of the lessons in the unique situations and circumstances faced by the many individuals Mark meets with.

I truly enjoyed my listen of this book. Though some sections are a bit dry, the overall broad concepts of the book are thoughtfully articulated, provide great insight into the history of sapiens, and challenges how we look at modern society with the knowledge of our past.

From Hilter to Amanda Knox, the CIA to Cuba, and a lot of other examples, Talking to Strangers takes the psychological theories put forth by others and applies them to some fascinating case studies of histories famed, fortunate and and misfortune. The use of voice recordings and voice reenactment make the message of the book that much more personal while the constant relationship between chapters and the constant building up help us understand how we think the way we do. A great podcast-esque audiobook which is easily digested and highly informative

Nothing in this book is unattainable, success is a series of systems that you can create yourself to progress and develop into the person you want to be.

We all want to wake up at X am or go to the gym Y number of times a week but we've conditioned ourselves to make these goals unattractive and hard. James provides very logical and rational insights on how to better organize your life in a manner where you build successful habits that can lead you to those end goals.

Highly recommended for any person looking to break bad habits and build good habits or for those looking for better understanding of how habits affect our daily lives

I was extremely satisfied from my listening of this book. I will definitely be listening to some of the chapters again to expand on my already expansive notes. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to understand the problems of yesterday and today while wanting to learn what's to come in the future as we progress through a world that is ever changing in all aspects of life.

Perfect as a story, self help, or even for a fresh perspective. Not all of us need to aspire to do what David Goggins has accomplished but to apply the mindset of callusing your mind: whether at your job, at home, in your daily life, that is this books greatest benefit, to help us understand how much potential we have inside of us and that it's never too late to unlock that potential if we believe in ourselves
