If you’ve ever been on the subway or in an elevator, you know the rules. Don’t make eye contact, stay as far away from other people as you can, and whatever you do, don’t talk to strangers.
Nicholas Boothman’s new book Your Life Doesn’t Happen Without Talking to Strangers navigates readers through and around the endless flow of strangers who hold the keys to all the knowledge, resources and lucky breaks they’ll ever need.
Author and speaker
Somewhere, in some town or city or village at this very moment, a baby is leaving its mother’s womb with the helping hands of a stranger. From this moment on, strangers will shape and determine her life.
Her family will love her but strangers will grow her food, manufacture her clothing, give her a job, make her laugh and cry. Strangers will surprise her with opportunities and lucky breaks. Strangers will talk to her, date her, comfort her, heal her, invest her money, service her car and bury her.
Whatever she wants in this life—romance, a dream job, a ticket to the Rose Bowl—chances are she’ll need a stranger’s help to get it.
To understand this is to recognize one of life’s simplest truths: Your life doesn’t happen without talking to strangers.
