GREAT PRAISE FOR WHAT THE DOG SAW:

"[Malcolm Gladwell] is one of the brightest stars in the media firmament...Gladwell's clear prose and knack for upending conventional wisdom across the social sciences have made The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, as well as his lengthy magazine features on topics ranging from cool-hunting to ketchup, into must reads."―Alex Altman, Time.com

"This evidence of a Gladwell effect helps to predict something larger: that Mr. Gladwell's new book will be as successful as his first three...This book full of short conversation pieces is a collection that plays to the author's strengths. It underscores his way of finding suitably quirky subjects (the history of women's hair-dye advertisements; the secret of Heinz's unbeatable ketchup; even the effects of women's changing career patterns on the number of menstrual periods they experience in their lifetimes) and using each as gateway to some larger meaning."―Janet Maslin, New York Times

"Gladwell is a writer of many gifts. His nose for the untold back story will have readers repeatedly muttering, "Gee, that's interesting!" He avoids shopworn topics, easy moralization and conventional wisdom, encouraging his readers to think again and think different...Some chapters are masterpieces in the art of the essay."―Steven Pinker, The New York Times Book Review

"Uniformly delightful...Malcolm Gladwell can write engrossingly about just about anything...His witty, probing articles are as essential to David Remnick's New Yorker as those of Wolcott Gibbs and A.J. Liebling were to Harold Ross's...Gladwell has a gift for capturing personalities, a Borscht Belt comic's feel for timing and a bent for counterintuitive thinking. He loves to start a piece by settling you onto a cushion of received ideas, then yanking it out from under you."-―Craig Seligman, Bloomberg News

"Malcolm Gladwell triumphantly returns to his roots with this collections of his great works from The New Yorker Magazine....Do yourself a favor and curl up with What the Dog Saw this week: It is more entertaining and edifying than should be legal for any book."―Scott Coffman, Louisville Courier-Journal

"In What the Dog Saw, Malcolm Gladwell leads the reader on delightful side excursions, shows with insightful conversation how one path interweaves with another, and suggests meaning-he is, in short, an interpretative naturalist of American culture."―Alice Evans, The Oregonian

5.0 von 5 Sternen Looking behind the obvious 1. Dezember 2009
Von et
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
For readers interested in subtle insights this book is a feast. Gladwell looks at issues you may have had your own experience with, like Enron or Ketchup. He starts at the obvious, the published story, the well known "facts" you are familiar with and then proceeds to reveal more and more information, different perspective and real (scientific) correlations you probably are not aware at all. Finally you find out, that a well established public opinion is just a made up story, concocted by some spin doctors and spread by the mass media.
Don't look for advice in this book. Gladwell just shows you a different, more differentiated picture. He did the searching for background information and scientific evidence for you. He presents the elements and their interrelation. Gladwell never tells you, what to think or how to act. Intelligent readers who prefer to think for themselves love such stuff for thought. It broadens ones mindset. Great book. Highly recommended!

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
"You, who have shown me great and severe troubles,
Shall revive me again,
And bring me up again from the depths of the earth." -- Psalm 71:20

Before thinking about buying or reading this book, please be aware that all the articles were originally published in The New Yorker. If you are a loyal reader of that excellent publication, you may well have read all these articles before.

The strength of Mr. Gladwell's writing in these non-fiction articles is his ability to become fascinated with something that most people either don't notice . . . or don't long think about. With the persistence of a terrier, he keeps asking questions until some new perspectives appear. In almost all cases, these new perspectives will advance your thinking from where it is today. Unfortunately, in some cases, his curiosity will leave you short of satisfying answers to new questions that his writing raises.

Some of the articles are either brilliant . . . or just short of being so, listed here in the order in which they appear:

Blowing Up: How Nassim Taleb Turned the Inevitability of Disaster into an Investment Strategy
What the Dog Saw: Cesar Millan and the Movements of Mastery
Million-Dollar Murray: Why Problems Like Homelessness May Be Easier to Manage Than to Solve
Connecting the Dots: The Paradoxes of Intelligence Reform
Late Bloomers: Why Do We Equate Genius with Precocity?
Most Likely to Succeed: How Do We Hire When We Can't Tell Who's Right for the Job?

Von Holger K. VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch ist eine Zusammenstellung von älteren Artikeln aus dem "New Yorker". Für den europäischen Leser sind diese Artikel für ein Magazin ungewohnt lang - und ich möchte meinen, zu lang. Gekürzt um ein Drittel würden die Kapitel sicher (noch) mehr fesseln, die souveräne Leichtigkeit etwa der Freakonomics-Autoren wird hier nicht erreicht.

Die Grund-Taktik, eine dem Leser grundsätzlich bekannte Geschichte mit den bekannten Fakten zu beginnen, und dann immer mehr Fragen aufzuwerfen und Türen zu anderen - meist überzeugenderen - Interpretationen zu öffnen, vermag jedoch durchaus zu gefallen. Dies sind keine besserwisserischen, von der Mission der eigenen Meinung oder der Political Correctness getriebenen Artikel, wie sie in Deutschland so häufig sind. Gladwell stellt nichts als final richtig dar, der Leser darf und soll mitdenken, mitdiskutieren. So bleiben am Ende nicht immer finale Antworten - aber eine breitere Perspektive und die Erkenntnis, dass das Offensichtliche oder allgemein Akzeptierte nicht der Wahrheit entsprechen muss - egal wie oft es in der Zeitung stand - oder die richtige (d.h. effektive) Lösung für ein Problem ist.

Nicht alle Schlussfolgerungen Gladwells sind überzeugend. Auch sind einige Stories für Amerikaner interessanter als für den Europaer. Dummerweise gilt dies schon für die belanglose Anfangsgeschichte über einen TV-Verkäufer, nach der ich schon fast aufhören wollte. Ich bin froh, dass ich es nicht tat.

Insgesamt also eine recht anregende Lektüre, mit vielen interessanten Erkenntnissen (die hier nicht vorweggenommen werden sollen), aber der eine konsequente Überarbeitung gut tun würde.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book, interesting topics 21. Oktober 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The book gets better with each chapter, which is to say it was a bit hard to get into the first couple chapters (unless you find the world of advertising and stock markets riveting). I thought the middle and later chapters were very interesting and I learned a lot from then, about everything from the development of the Pill to Cesar Milan's philosophies on dog/people training. Gladwell sticks to the same formula in his writing throughout: choose two seemingly unrelated topics and seam them together to get to the heart of the article.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Read 22. September 2010
Von Marile
Format:Taschenbuch
Malcom Gladwell ist immer gut zu lesen. Teilweise sind die Beiträge nicht mehr ganz aktuell, hier werden Artikel der vergangenen Jahre gesammelt in einem Buch vorgelegt. Trotzdem interessant und überraschend, wie auch 'Blink', 'Tipping Point' und 'Outliers'.
