Malcolm uses many case studies and also cites significant cases such as Brock Turner and Sandra Bland. The book provokes thoughts and asks its readers to think deeper, to try and understand why we think the way we do, and assume things about strangers with one interaction. How do we decide if someone is lying to us? Is the truth subjective or is it perspective? Can we determine if a person is lying by facial expressions or do we need more? While there are no real answers or conclusions stated In the book, it leaves a realm for open-ended interpretations. The readers can come to their own conclusion ironically relating to the fact that we take our stand about strangers with just a conversation. The title correctly justifies the ideas expressed in the story, making it a compelling read!
