by Malcolm Gladwell

Description

Over the past decade, Malcolm Gladwell has become the most gifted and influential journalist in America. In The New Yorker, his writings are such must-reads that the magazine charges advertisers significantly more money for ads that run within his articles. With his number-one best sellers, The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, he has reached millions of readers. And now the very best and most famous of his New Yorker pieces are collected in a brilliant and provocative anthology. Among the pieces: his investigation into why there are so many different kinds of mustard but only one kind of ketchup; a surprising assessment of what makes for a safer automobile; a look at how we hire when we can't tell who's right for the job; an examination of machine built to predict hit movies; the reasons why homelessness might be easier to solve than manage; his famous profile of inventor and entrepreneur Ron Popeil; a look at why employers love personality tests; a dissection of Ivy League admissions and who gets in; the saga of the quest to invent the perfect cookie; and a look at hair dye and the hidden history of postwar America. For the millions of Malcolm Gladwell fans, this anthology is like a greatest hits compilation-a mix tape from America's alpha mind.

Customer Reviews

Very insightful!

Just as great as his other books! So insightful! A must read!

Terrific insights

Gladwell's essays contain everything you could want in non-fiction -- insight, humor, interesting subject matter. But there's more, because what Gladwell tries to do is offer a glimpse of some larger point, say, about the conclusions we draw from data, or about the ways we communicate with each other and the assumptions we make on a daily basis. It's part human-interest story, part social commentary, and part philosophy of science. Great book, and the author reads clearly with excellent tone.

What the Dog Saw

This is that rare book which full of genuinely original insights on a startling array of apparently commonplace subjects. Occasionally the conclusions seem truncated, but the range of Gladwell's mind and his ability to see human behavior in often startling perspectives make this book a rare pleasure. Not "thinking outside the box" so much as getting rid of the box altogether.
