Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Collects the best New Yorker pieces by the best-selling author of Outliers including essays on such topics as why there are so many kinds of mustard but only one type of ketchup, a surprising assessment of what makes a safer car, an examination of a machine built to predict hit movies, and many more.


Review:

"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...and using each as gateway to some larger meaning. It illustrates how often he sets up one premise...only to destroy it....This book's voice always sounds level-headed, whether it is describing ketchup being tasted or pit bulls attacking a boy. It tames visceral events by approaching them scientifically."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 10/20/2009

Review:

"What makes Malcolm Gladwell...so extraordinary is his ability to focus on any topic from the arcane to the apparently banal, research it with shrewd intelligence and wholehearted engagement, then weave in other thoughts and themes that may seem unrelated until he subtly illuminates their relevance. The result is unfailingly riveting."

Amanda Heller, Boston Globe, 11/01/2009

Book Description: Little Brown and Company, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 206 x 142 mm. Brand New Book. 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.
