I listened to this as an audiobook and Gladwell has a wonderful voice for doing his own narrations which is why I often find myself selecting his audiobooks.

This collection of essays does not live up to my expectations from reading [b:The Tipping Point|2612|The Tipping Point|Malcolm Gladwell|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1255576535s/2612.jpg|2124255] or [b:Outliers|3228917|Outliers|Malcolm Gladwell|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1255608670s/3228917.jpg|3364437]. Indeed, having read those I found some of his work in this book to be redundant and appearing to me to be an attempt by the publisher to get as much of his work out there as possible while his name is well known.

The book is enjoyable, just not as insightful or informative as I've come to expect from Gladwell. No regrets about selecting this book, just no great enjoyment either. ( )

I had already read two of the pieces in the book - The Pitchman, about the rise of Showtime Rotisserie Grill salesman-in-chief Ron Popeil, and Million-Dollar Murray, about a different approach to managing homelessness in Denver, CO - and both of them blew me away. When I saw they were in the table of contents, I was naturally interested to see what else Gladwell had written.

The book has a really strong start with "Obsessives, Pioneers, and other varieties of Minor Genius" which includes the aforementioned Pitchman piece and some really insightful/interesting stuff on the birth of birth control, Cesar Millan (of Dog Whisperer fame), hair dye marketing, and ketchup. Unfortunately, it doesn't keep it up for the next two parts - there's an interesting piece on "The Art of Failure" and another one on evaluating football players/teachers (which unfortunately has a dark, boring twin about job interviews), but for the most part, it's all pretty bland. Doubly unfortunately, it suffers from the same thing that William Gibson's Distrust That Particular Flavor does - a couple of samey pieces that really drag things down (as mentioned above, a boring one on job interviews that detracts from the good football/education article, and two snore-inducing Enron pieces that feel really dated now).

I'm not sure I'd recommend this to anyone, as you can just read the good essays on Gladwell's site for free. I got a lot of weird reactions when I told people I was reading this, and now I think I see why. :",,,1,,,0,,,,,

A collection of previously published writings. If you have read everything else by Malcolm Gladwell, some of it will seem familiar. The articles looked at topics from a new perspective and show that there's usually more to the story than what you see in the news. ( )

So Interesting! Malcolm Gladwell always delivers and challenges one to question how we see things. Easy to read across such a range of topics. I really enjoy his writing and have read a number of his books. ( )

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?
