"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, 10/20/2009Review:
"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
