Full description for What the Dog Saw
Pre-Order Malcolm Gladwell's New Book, David and Goliath, Coming 3 October 2013. In What the Dog Saw Malcolm Gladwell covers everything from criminology to spaghetti sauce to show how the most ordinary subjects can illuminate the most extraordinary things about ourselves and our world. Looking under the surface of the seemingly mundane, he explores the underdogs, the overlooked, the curious, the miraculous and the disastrous, and reveals how everyone and everything contains an incredible story. What the Dog Saw is Gladwell at his very best - asking questions and finding surprising answers. "A global phenomenon ...there is, it seems, no subject over which he cannot scatter some magic dust". (Observer). "Gladwell makes the world seem fresh and exciting again". (Evening Standard). "Comes exuberantly close to ...what goes on inside other people's heads". (Daily Telegraph). "A dizzying array ...his writing talks to all of us". (Guardian). "Consistently absorbing ...captivating". (Independent). "Gladwell's storytelling qualities and his eye for the human drama ...make this so compelling". (Sunday Times). Author, journalist, cultural commentator and intellectual adventurer, Malcolm Gladwell is a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine. His first book The Tipping Point captured the world's attention with its theory that a curiously small change can have unforeseen effects. His other international bestselling books are Outliers, which looks at the stories of exceptional individuals and reveals the secrets of their success, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking and What The Dog Saw, a collection of his most provocative and entertaining New Yorker pieces.
