Hablar con extraños: Por qué es crucial (y tan difícil) leer las intenciones de los desconocidos Audiobook

Hablar con extraños: Por qué es crucial (y tan difícil) leer las intenciones de los desconocidos

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Edson Matus Release Date: March 2020

VUELVE EL MEJOR GLADWELL, autor de El punto clave, Inteligencia intuitiva y Fuera de serie. «Si puedo convencerte de una única cosa con este libro, que sea esta: los desconocidos no son simples.» ¿Cómo pudo un espía pasar años sin ser detectado en los más altos niveles del Pentágono? ¿Qué llevó a Neville Chamberlain a creer que podía confiar en Adolf Hitler? ¿Qué tienen en común esos casos con el engaño de Bernie Madoff, el juicio de Amanda Knox, el suicidio de Sylvia Plath o la comedia de televisión Friends? Cuando interactuamos con desconocidos, a menudo las cosas no salen bien, en parte porque creemos adivinar las intenciones de los demás basándonos en pistas terriblemente endebles. En Hablar con extraños, Malcolm Gladwell, el autor que ha conquistado a una legión de admiradores con su particular manera de ver el mundo, entrevista a toda una serie de personas brillantes, ofrece un arsenal de ejemplos divertidos, contraintuitivos y convincentes, extrae de ellos ideas poderosas y las condimenta con abundantes datos inolvidables. Al mostrarnos por qué se nos da tan mal leer entre líneas, revela las claves para lidiar mejor con los desconocidos en nuestra vida. En este nuevo viaje a lo inesperado, Gladwell nos ofrece nuevos y valiosos descubrimientos sobre nosotros mismos, pasados por el prisma de la historia, la psicología y la sociología. La crítica ha dicho: «Malcom Gadwell nos refresca las enseñanzas paternas y [...], a pesar de todo, nos reconcilia con el ser humano. Estamos hechos para confiar. Un libro fresco y atractivo.» Laura Barrachina, Las mañanas de Radio Nacional «Un profundo estudio sobre todo lo que puede salir mal en nuestra interpretación de los otros.» Carlos Sala, La Razón «Excelente escritura, estructura magistral, datos llamativos elegantemente reutilizados. La fórmula que hizo que sus libros anteriores fueran éxitos.» Financial Times «Irresistible, y dará que hablar. En un momento de máxima polarización, un libro que examina el modo en que fallamos a la hora de comunicarnos no podría ser más oportuno. Se devora como si fuera un thriller.» Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times «Hay un momento de la lectura en el que incluso el escéptico comienza a sentir que nos estamos equivocando en todo y que quizá este tal Gladwell ha dado con algo... Hablar con extraños es el más sólido de sus títulos.» Amy Chozick, The New York Times «Gladwell ofrece poderosos consejos para entender mejor a los otros. Defiende brillantemente que nadie es transparente y la necesidad de comprender que los comportamientos dependen de circunstancias invisibles.» People «Los casos que analiza Galdwell son sensacionales. Repleto de fascinantes anécdotas, de las cuales extrae pequeñas píldoras sobre cómo relacionarnos con los desconocidos.» Maggie Taft, Booklist «Intelectualmente estimulante, otro tour de force de Gladwell. Los lectores que esperen una nueva lectura adictiva del tipo 'nada-de-lo-que-dabas-por-sentado-es-así' no se verán defraudados.» Kirkus Reviews «Fascinante y oportuno. Gladwell escribe con su característica prosa colorida, fluida y accesible.» Publishers Weekly «Adoro este libro. No solo cambia el modo en que vemos a los extraños, sino también cómo entendemos las noticias, el mundo y a nosotros mismos. Transformador.» Oprah Winfrey «Uno de los mejores observadores de su generación, un pensador de amplio espectro que nos ayuda a comprender la condición humana.» Bob Brisco, WebMD Magazine «Gladwell tiene un inmenso talento: una mente aguda, original e inquisitiva, la capacidad de desenterrar información que otros no han considerado y darle un sentido más amplio. Su habilidad narrativa es inigualable.» Stephen Galloway, The Hollywood Reporter

Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know Audiobook

Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Malcolm Gladwell Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. The highly anticipated new book from Malcom Gladwell, host of the chart-topping podcast Revisionist History. With original archival interviews and musical scoring, this enhanced audiobook edition of Talking to Strangers brings Gladwell's renowned storytelling to life in his unparalleled narrating style. The routine traffic stop that ends in tragedy. The spy who spends years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon. The false conviction of Amanda Knox. Why do we so often get other people wrong? Why is it so hard to detect a lie, read a face or judge a stranger's motives? Through a series of encounters and misunderstandings - from history, psychology and infamous legal cases - Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual adventure into the darker side of human nature, where strangers are never simple and misreading them can have disastrous consequences. No one challenges our shared assumptions like Malcolm Gladwell. Here he uses stories of deceit and fatal errors to cast doubt on our strategies for dealing with the unknown, inviting us to rethink our thinking in these troubled times.

Inteligencia intuitiva. ¿Por qué sabemos la verdad en dos segundos? Audiobook

Inteligencia intuitiva. ¿Por qué sabemos la verdad en dos segundos?

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Edson Matus Release Date: January 2018

¿Por qué algunas personas son brillantes tomando decisiones y otras son torpes una y otra vez? ¿Por qué algunos siguen su instinto y triunfan, mientras que otros acaban siempre dando un paso en falso? En este libro revolucionario, el periodista estadounidense Malcolm Gladwell nos explica cómo pensamos sin pensar, de dónde proceden las decisiones que parece que tomamos en dos segundos, pero que no son tan simples como aparentan. ¿Por qué algunas personas son brillantes tomando decisiones y otras son torpes una y otra vez? ¿Por qué algunos siguen su instinto y triunfan, mientras que otros acaban siempre dando un paso en falso? ¿Cuál es el funcionamiento real del cerebro en el trabajo, en clase, en la cocina o en la cama? ¿Y por qué las mejores decisiones suelen ser las más difíciles de explicar? Gladwell nos presenta a un psicólogo que ha aprendido a predecir si un matrimonio puede durar con sólo observarles unos minutos; a un entrenador de tenis que sabe cuándo un jugador hará doble falta antes incluso de que la raqueta toque la bola; a un experto en antigüedades que reconoce una falsificación de un solo vistazo. Este libro revela que quienes son buenos tomando decisiones no son aquellos que procesan más información o que dedican más tiempo a deliberar, sino aquellos que han perfeccionado el arte de hilar fino, de extraer los pocos factores que realmente importan a partir de una cantidad desmesurada de variables. Por medio de la neurología y la psicología, y exhibiendo todo el esplendor del que este autor es capaz, Inteligencia intuitiva cambia nuestra forma de ver las decisiones que tomamos. Nunca más volverás a pensar en pensar de la misma manera. Reseñas: «Un mago en los libros de autoayuda. Con más de 10 millones de ejemplares vendidos, Malcolm Gladwell es uno de los principales escritores motivacionales, gurú del éxito y analista de "estrategias para triunfar". La clave del éxito, Inteligencia intuitiva, Lo que vio el perro y Fueras de serie son libros que ejecutivos y líderes de todo tipo devoran en los aeropuertos.» La Gaceta de los negocios «Confíe en mi intuición: si compra este libro quedará encantado.» The New York Times «¿Debería comprar este libro? Es probable que ya intuya la respuesta.» ndependent on Sunday «Si Gladwell tiene razón, comprarán este libro. Y eso confirmará su tesis.» Stephen Bayley, The Guardian «Convincente y diabólicamente inteligente.» Evening Standard «Brillante. Las implicaciones para los negocios, por no hablar del amor, son inmensas.» The Observer «Fantástico. Este maravilloso libro debería ser de lectura obligada.» The New Statesman «Sencillamente este libro podría cambiar tu vida.» Esquire

El punto clave (The Tipping Point)

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Edson Matus Release Date: December 2017

¿Cómo surgen las epidemias, las modas, los éxitos de venta, el fenómeno de boca a boca o cualquiera de esos pequeños cambios que sacuden nuestra vida cotidiana al provocar grandes efectos? Las mejores obras de no ficción en formato audiolibro En esta obra revolucionaria que ocupa desde hace años los primeros puestos en las listas de ventas de Estados Unidos, Gladwell, un auténtico gurú de los negocios, analiza la trayectoria de varios productos y tendencias de gran éxito hasta descubrir cómo y por qué se alcanza el punto de inflexión a partir del cual algo se convierte en un fenómeno de masas: el punto clave. Gladwell nos presenta en este audiolibro a personas responsables de difundir nuevas ideas y tendencias y examina la moda, los programas infantiles de televisión, la conducta de los fumadores y hasta la publicidad directa, con el fin de dilucidar el proceso del contagio de ideas. « La mejor forma de entender los cambios misteriosos que jalonan nuestra vida cotidiana (ya sea la aparición de una tendencia en la moda, el retroceso de las oleadas de crímenes, la transformación de un libro desconocido en un éxito de ventas, el aumento del consumo de tabaco entre los adolescentes, o el fenómeno del boca a oreja) es tratarlos como puras epidemias. Las ideas, los productos, los mensajes y las conductas se extienden entre nosotros igual que los virus.» Malcolm Gladwell Reseñas: «Malcolm Gladwell, escritor de éxito masivo, se ha convertido en uno de los grandes especialistas de nuestro tiempo en iluminar las zonas de sombra con su mezcla de periodismo, estudios científicos, historia y filosofía. Amante de llevar la contraria [...] Su objetivo es colocar junto a la certeza un signo de interrogación. [...]Gladwell define su trabajo como 'no ficción pop'. [...] Es uncheerleader de las ciencias sociales. [...] A la vista de los millones de lectores que han devorado sus libros, cabría decir que hay algo tranquilizador en ver ideas confirmadas por los estudios citados. También es curioso y seductor.» El País Semanal «Un mago en los libros de autoayuda. [...] Con más de 10 millones de ejemplares vendidos,MalcolmGladwell es uno de los principales escritores 'motivacionales', gurú del éxito y analista de 'estrategias para triunfar'. El punto clave, Inteligencia intuitiva, Lo que vio el perro y Fueras de serie son libros que ejecutivos y líderes de todo tipo devoran en los aeropuertos.» La Gaceta de los negocios «Cualquier persona interesada en tendencias debería leer El punto clave.» US Magazine «Una lectura tremendamente gratificante.» The Seattle Times «Un tratado de lo más original que le mantendrá despierto.» Business Week «Gladwell tiene una gran habilidad para transmitir teorías complejas en prosa clara y elegante, y es un guía de lo más carismático.» San Francisco Chronicle «Un estudio ameno, oportuno y atractivo de las modas. Gladwell tiene un don para explicar claramente los experimentos psicológicos.» Alan Wolfe, The New York Times Book Review

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference [Russian Edition]

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Aleksiy Muzhytskiy Release Date: July 2017

The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas.

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants Audiobook

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Maxim Kireev Release Date: July 2017

Malcolm Gladwell, the #1 bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and What the Dog Saw, offers his most provocative---and dazzling---book yet. Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David's victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn't have won. Or should he have? In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago. From there, David and Goliath examines Northern Ireland's Troubles, the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, murder and the high costs of revenge, and the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms---all to demonstrate how much of what is beautiful and important in the world arises from what looks like suffering and adversity. In the tradition of Gladwell's previous bestsellers---The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and What the Dog Saw---David and Goliath draws upon history, psychology, and powerful storytelling to reshape the way we think of the world around us.

Malcolm Gladwell Box Set Audiobook

Malcolm Gladwell Box Set

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Malcolm Gladwell Release Date: May 2010

For the first time all three of Malcolm Gladwell's bestselling, groundbreaking audiobooks are available together in an "instant classic" box set at a value-price. THE TIPPING POINT: The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, has already changed the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas. BLINK: In Blink, Malcolm Gladwell revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others? Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing"-filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables. OUTLIERS: In this stunning audiobook, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"-the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band. Brilliant and entertaining, OUTLIERS is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

Outliers: The Story of Success

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Malcolm Gladwell Release Date: November 2008

There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around them-at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential. In The Tipping Point Gladwell changed the way we understand the world. In Blink he changed the way we think about thinking. In OUTLIERS he transforms the way we understand success.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

Author: Malcolm Gladwell Narrator: Malcolm Gladwell Release Date: April 2006

In his landmark bestseller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police. Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing"-filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.
