What is the difference between choking and panicking? Why are there dozens of varieties of mustard-but only one variety of ketchup? What do football players teach us about how to hire teachers? What does hair dye tell us about the history of the 20th century?

In the past decade, Malcolm Gladwell has written three books that have radically changed how we understand our world and ourselves: The Tipping Point; Blink; and Outliers. Now, in What the Dog Saw, he brings together, for the first time, the best of his writing from The New Yorker over the same period.

Here is the bittersweet tale of the inventor of the birth control pill, and the dazzling inventions of the pasta sauce pioneer Howard Moscowitz. Gladwell sits with Ron Popeil, the king of the American kitchen, as he sells rotisserie ovens, and divines the secrets of Cesar Millan, the "dog whisperer" who can calm savage animals with the touch of his hand. He explores intelligence tests and ethnic profiling and "hindsight bias" and why it was that everyone in Silicon Valley once tripped over themselves to hire the same college graduate.

"Good writing," Gladwell says in his preface, "does not succeed or fail on the strength of its ability to persuade. It succeeds or fails on the strength of its ability to engage you, to make you think, to give you a glimpse into someone else's head." What the Dog Saw is yet another example of the buoyant spirit and unflagging curiosity that have made Malcolm Gladwell our most brilliant investigator of the hidden extraordinary.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle Version pricing and content is misleading 20. Juni 2011
Von TDimo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
When you go to the "What the Dog Saw" main page, the first format listing is $4.99 for the Kindle version. I clicked on that, thinking that the entire book was $4.99 and purchased it - only to see after the fact that this was only a portion of the book. I saw that there was a Part Two, also for $4.99. I accepted this, since I found yet another Kindle version at $9.99, and figured I would buy the second Part if I enjoyed the first Part, for roughly the same price as the whole book. Imagine my surprise when I both saw that there was a Part Three, you guessed it, at another $4.99. Not only that, I also found out from another reviewer that supposedly these articles are available somewhere online for free. All of this would be fine if I felt I had bought the first Part fairly with full disclosure. That all said, the content and writing is very interesting and thought provoking, but given my severe displeasure at the version pricing and segmentation, I have to give this only 1 star. So basically, if you want to read only Part One, know that you are only purchasing 1/3 of the book, and it is probably a better deal to buy the full version for $9.99, because if you enjoy this one, you have to pay either a additional $9.99 for the full version or $4.99 twice to get the whole thing. Or, if what I've been told is correct, you can read most if not all of these articles online for free anyway. Bottom line, if publishers are going to set pricing like this, it should be more clearly stated.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Note that Kindle version is incomplete 11. Mai 2011
Von D. Berry - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If I had read the title more closely I would have realized the Kindle version is just Part I of this book. My defense, however, is that I simply clicked on the "Kindle version, $4.99" link while looking at the listing for the (complete) physical book and nothing on that page indicated I was only getting part of the book. Again, if I'd paid better attention I would have noticed the discrepancy, but given that I'd clicked through from the complete paper copy I think that would be an easy thing to overlook (it was for me). Still, I'm giving a 3-star rating because I really enjoy Gladwell's writing. No, he doesn't solve all the world's problems, but I like his writing and I always learn something from one of his essays.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Connecting 22 dots 12. Januar 2012
Von Steve Bradford - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Malcolm Gladwell's peculiar `What the Dog Saw' (2009) shows the writers innate writing ability to connect the dots to some curious questions to such things as RONCO, mustard, birth control, Enron, homelessness, plagiarism, criminal profiling, and pit bull dogs. The book is an interesting inflection into unique topics with some added insight written in Mr. Gladwell's smooth prose. The book's title is based on Caesar Millan and his dog-calming techniques.

`What the Dog Saw' is an insight into some questions we discuss in conversations, but rarely investigate. Mr. Gladwell has done a fantastic job of asking these questions as well: And in some cases, finding plausible answers. Some questions asked, for instance, why we have a dozen types of mustard, but still one flavor of ketchup? Or why some people choke, while others panic? Criminal profiling made easy, Are smart people overrated? What can pit bulls teach us about crime? The paradoxes of intelligence.

This is not by far Gladwell's most popular book, but a collection of short stories that, while not requiring a complete book to detail, should be questioned. Gladwell's ability to map and then decipher these questions is bordering literal mastery of his writing style. The reading is easy and makes for a decent night stand book to cozy up to. Its unpretentiousness is character Gladwell. The detail, while not too deep, gives the reader enough details without bending the ears. The conclusions are his and surprisingly agreeable, for the most part.

Gladwell fans will enjoy his journey in connecting the dots of life. This book will please you!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed, but probably due to misperception 8. Juli 2011
Von Bryarly Ridgdill - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was disappointed in this book, but I think it was b/c I thought it would be similar to a Freakonomics-type book, rather than a collection of his articles. He's a fine writer, and does a great amount of research, but it wasn't what I expected. The chapter on the mustard and ketchup was kind of nifty, though!
