I m a bit biased, because I wrote this book But everyone tells me that reading it changes the way they walk in the world This book is about the people we take for granted, or perhaps don t even notice.
I love how this book gave me an entirely different perspective on the people in my life While I knew that some of the people around me had a lot to offer me, I now see how everyone has a lot to offer, whether I realize it at the time or not I also feel motivated to add people into my circle of friend acquaintances.I ve re evaluated interactions I ve had in the past, and hope to be aware of those I have in the future For reasons I don t understand, while reading this book, I had several epiphan [...]
Strangers among us Sure, we all know that our close relationships with family, partners, and friends influence our lives in significant and obvious ways But, what about the casual relationships we have with have those outside of our immediate circles Delving into the realm of our subtle relations with consequential strangers, Blau and Fingerman provide a fascinating look at how the minor players in our lives collectively and surprisingly have a major role in how our lives function and feel Far [...]
Consequential Strangers has a pretty interesting premise, and was heavily researched and well thought out However, it probably could have been shorter and reached the same conclusions It says what we probably already know intuitively that a person is even happy, healthy and satisfied with life if he knows and interfaces with a myriad of people every week Connections with people you only know from certain places are of high importance to your sense of self and place, and often can lead you to ma [...]
I myself have travelled the globe and met so many interesteing people, but have also been in dark places and low times where the unconditional help and advice from strangers has been benefical than one might think I m not a shy person so many of these stories i can really relate to This book really should keep your faith that there is good in people and there is hope It s an inspiring book that isn t meant to be that way, it s just finding strength and support all around you It truly defeats th [...]
I honestly wish that Consequential Strangers was a total stranger from my bookshelf This book took a simple premise, that strangers and acquaintances are important in our lives, and somehow managed to find enough anecdotes ways to rephrase her point that it came out to 276 pages Were the author eloquent she could have saved herself the effort of writing a book and fit it in a fortune cookie or a tweet I didn t learn ANYTHING new, and the author quotes her previous book I don t think that s a be [...]
This was an interesting book, but there seemed to be quite a bit of repetition Not that that is a bad thing repetition is the mother of memory , but I ended up skimming parts because I felt like I had already read it There are good ideas and ways of recognizing how important these consequential strangers it also seems that this is just the authors term for acquaintances and how much they play a part in your life.
Wonderful book that touches on bullying, the affects of everyday encounters, workplace dynamics, and sheds light on how we live socially This is a great book that I have returned to many times and took my time combing through If only you all could see the dog eared pages and my underlines that are ready to be used for future articles This is a good book for the professional and the curious community member.Mr Joe
I loved this book It opened my eyes to so many things I didn t realize before about the people I interact with on a daily basis A must read for anyone who wants to know about those around them and themselves It s very insightful and will change the way I look at things from now on.
I definitely liked it better than Freakonomics It starts out kind of slow, but it has some great information in it Since starting over in life I m a recovering addict and reformed inmate, my current life is based on people I know at the store, at the gym, at the library etc.
Any book that s simply written based on research is really not for me I also don t ever take the attitude that they re trying to erase here, of people who don t seem to matter Everyone matters
I especially liked the discussions regarding online relationships.
this says what they are, from the internet age to now but not how to keep them as allies.
Some great points and stories but rambled a bit
Textbook theory on the roles that strangers make in our lives Good book if you are studying physcology.
Especially like the chapter on Being Spaces We need third places.
It was very interesting, but I feel that it could have been a lot shorter.
