    Malcom 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.

    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 book

    nothing new to offer. It looks like compilation of various data with any major conclusion or content to make you think.

    Poor show by Gladwell

    Not 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 !
