What the dog saw - Malcolm Gladwell

If you enjoyed Gladwell’s bestsellers such as “The tipping point”, “Blink” and “Outliers”, this collection of articles is a must read for you.
Malcolm Gladwell has worked as a columnist for “The New Yorker” since the mid nineties. Many of the articles he’s published in that paper posed as groundwork for some of his most famous non fiction books. “What the dog saw” is a collection of the best of those articles.Gladwell has a knack for digging a subject and finding some non intuitive viewpoint which allows him to unearth some unexpected detail that can lead to the solution of some broader social issue. Some of the examples he comes up with to back up his points are marvelous. I’ve read many of his books and he never fails to surprise me. I feel I learn so much from his analytical, counterintuitive and unconventional approach. I love his style. If you haven’t read any of his books, go ahead and try this one out.
