In the past decade, author and journalist Malcolm Gladwell has written three bestselling books that have gone on to radically change how we understand the world and ourselves. Now, in 'What the Dog Saw,' he offers up a collection of the best of his writing from 'The New Yorker' during the same time period that he wrote 'The Tipping Point,' 'Blink,' and 'Outliers.' This collection tells the bittersweet tale of the inventor of the birth control pill, the dazzling creations of the pasta sauce pioneer, the divine secrets of Cesar Millan - the 'dog whisperer' - and more. 'What the Dog Saw exhibits Gladwell's writing at its finest and uncovers extraordianary secrets of everyday life.
This just in: a collection of Gladwell's New Yorker essays. Do we trust him after Outliers? Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Bad Dog! Bad Dog!We often wonder just what’s going through other people’s heads when they commit certain actions or make certain decisions. Probing the lives of different people (and even the dogs of the title), Mr. Gladwell attempts to wrangle some sense out of things that may seem senseless. If you’ve ever wonder what steps are being taken to solve the homeless “problem”, if you can’t help pondering why Enron failed so spectacularly or thought about why some people get along so well with dogs (and what makes canines attack without seeming provocation), then “What the Dog Saw” will be an eye opener. Parts of the book may be too esoteric or convoluted for the average reader but by and large you’ll have many a moment of revelation when you think, “Oh, so that’s why that happened!”
