I enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's books. And, overall, this one was interesting and enjoyable to read as well.This collection of his New Yorker pieces really left me thinking, though, that it's a mistake to believe that just because someone gets to be a writer for a prestigious magazine, they know what the...

A collection of Malcolm Gladwell's articles from The New Yorker. Gladwell has a tendency to link together two seemingly unrelated subjects(the breaking of Enron and the investigation into Watergate, for instance) and tie them into a fundamental concept (in that example, the problem of figuring out ...

Malcolm Gladwell is acclaimed writer and journalist. He’s a man full of ambitions, eagerness, success and luck. Not so strange that he decided to write a book or, lets put it better, describe people alike him: intelligent, successful, ambitious and passionate. What the Dog Saw smoothly presents ...

Tried to read this book on several occasions but it just did not keep by interest. I finally decided not to bother with it anymore so I have never finished it. It may be a good book but not for me.

It was okay... Maybe better reading it instead of listening to the audio book. Very long but many parts did interest me enough to stay with it.

This collection of previously published pieces from The New Yorker is interesting, though I have the same complaints about it that I had of his earlier books. He offers an interesting viewpoint on something, but it's not backed by comprehensive data, and he generally presents his viewpoint as accep...
