We will be talking with Melinda Blau. We will be discussing the fact that Strangers that are outside our immediate circle are closer then we think when it come to relationships. See below what the books is about Most of us walk through life interacting with people who skirt the edges of our social circles without realizing that they’re as important as our intimates. They punctuate our days, but we take them for granted: our coffee person and car mechanic, our coworkers and fellow volunteers, a golf buddy, a teacher, and most of our Facebook “friends.” They are all consequential strangers –- people who bring novelty and information into our lives, allow us to exercise different parts of ourselves, and open us up to new opportunities. They keep us healthy and are invaluable when we’re sick. They fuel innovation and propel social movements, and hasten the flow of new ideas. And they are vital in times of uncertainty. www.consequentialstrangers.com
