Gladwell works with great material, every chapter a different subject plus he has a real knack for approaching his material from oblique angles. Lots of food for thought here. Jan 2010 ( )

Excellent collection of essays that originally appeared in the New Yorker. Gladwell is a wonderful writer who has a knack for finding fascinating angles to seemingly mundane things. ( )

Gladwell's writing is captivating and insightful as always; however, What the Dog Saw lacks a unifying theme, in contrast to Gladwell's early books. Since one of Gladwell's strengths is the connection of different entities on the basis of shared phenomena, this lack prevents What The Dog Saw from being a true masterpiece. Nevertheless, an enjoyable read. ( )

Enjoyed most of it, but skipped a lot of the articles of no interest to me. The John Rock article was probably the favourite of the whole book. I like his writing to an extent, except for his repetition. Not bad, nothing amazing.

A collection of the author's essays and reflections on cabbages and kings, things trivial and significant, and on the nature of rational and irrational knowledge and understanding. The collection starts of on a rather unpromising note, with a piece on the salesmanship involved in developing and selling kitchen implements, that is so entrenched in America, that it is almost incomprehensible to readers from other parts of the world.It gets more interesting toward the middle of the book, dealing with the nature of understanding and problem solving in various fields. An engrossing and enlightening read. ( )

The themes of the collection are a good way to characterize Gladwell himself: a minor genius who unwittingly demonstrates the hazards of statistical reasoning and who occasionally blunders into spectacular failures.
 
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. It illustrates how often he sets up one premise (i.e. that crime profiling helps track down serial killers) only to destroy it.
 
Gladwell has divided his book into three sections. The first deals with what he calls obsessives and minor geniuses; the second with flawed ways of thinking. The third focuses on how we make predictions about people: will they make a good employee, are they capable of great works of art, or are they the local serial killer?
