Author, journalist, cultural commentator and intellectual adventurer, Malcolm Gladwell was born in 1963 in England to a Jamaican mother and an English mathematician father. He grew up in Canada and graduated with a degree in history from the University of Toronto in 1984. From 1987 to 1996, he was a reporter for the Washington Post, first as a science writer and then as New York City bureau chief. Since 1996, he has been a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine. His curiosity and breadth of interests are shown in New Yorker articles ranging over a wide array of subjects including early childhood development and the flu, not to mention hair dye, shopping and what it takes to be cool. His phenomenal bestseller The Tipping Point captured the worlds attention with its theory that a curiously small change can have unforeseen effects, and the phrase has become part of our language, used by writers, politicians and business people everywhere to describe cultural trends and strange phenomena. How first impressions lead to snap judgements inspired his next bestselling book, BLINK: The Power of Thinking without Thinking, which reveals how the power of 'blink' could fundamentally transform our relationships, the way we consume, create and communicate, how we run our businesses and even our societies. OUTLIERS: The Story of Success, is Gladwells eagerly anticipated new book on success. It takes us on an invigorating intellectual journey to show us what makes an extreme overachiever. Just as he did in BLINK, Gladwell overturns many of our conventional notions and creates an entirely new model for seeing the world.

WEARISOME AT THE START, SPECTACULAR BY THE ENDMalcom Gladwell’s book, What the dog saw, is a collection of selected articles originally posted in the New Yorker. It is divided into three parts, the first part focuses at specific individuals while other two is a more collaborative depiction of the topic in discussion. There are a total of 19 stories. The first few stories regrettably were not a great as I hoped it would be. The criterias I was looking for were appealing stories, followed by a comprehensive analysis in terms of Psychology (given that it is in the Psychology section) and ending in a satisfying conclusion. This was hardly … (Expand)

Intellectually invigorating read!Gladwell makes the reader think! He takes the reader on the least used thought-process and gives bizarre insights and anecdotes, making one more intelligent and broad-minded than before! This book consists of an assortment of stories and ideas, making it all the more pleasurable and interesting.

Boring booknothing new to offer. It looks like compilation of various data with any major conclusion or content to make you think.

Poor show by GladwellNot in the league of Outliers or Blink ! The unbelievable research that goes into each of Gladwell's books can be seen in this one too. But this here appears to be rather of a drag than interestingly informative ! Gladwell's skill to make the mundane exciting is conspicuous in its absence !
