No real conclussions are ever drawn. Just a collection of stories. He is overly interested in women's issues: Menstruation, Breast Cancer even Hair Dye. His voice is very creepy too. I didn't enjoy Blink either because he just keeps tell the same story over and over again in different examples but never makes a point or draw any conclusion. You come away with nothing asking "So What? What's your point?"
Nice glimpse into the mind of Gladwell not quite as powerful as his other books Tipping point , Outliers , blink but an excellent compilation of his work I never had the chance to hear/read when it was published in the new yorker.
I am the first to admit that the majority of Malcolm's work is "over my head", but that does not stop me from thoroughly enjoying all of his audio books. His use of language and his voice makes him my favorite author and narrator. And every topic makes me pause and think about what is being said. I hope that the future will bring more of his works to the Audible collection.
I enjoyed What the Dog Saw but found some of it to be painstaking, rather than enthralling or deeply interesting like his previous works. This one was more of a hard slog.
Typical Gladwell as he breaks down what might seem like the most mundane of subjects into fascinating detail. Subtle life lessons and business lessons abound in these stories. I like "Outliers" better because it seemed more neatly tied up but I highly recommend "What the Dog Saw".

An ear turner, several great short stories in one.Enjoyed every minute of it. Well worth the credit.
This was a hodgepodge of stories where the author seems more interested in getting his personal point of view across than informing the reader. If you are looking for an entertaining and informative book; keep looking
Provocative, inspiring, infuriating: it's all in here, in one way or the other, and the author's own narration is top notch. It's excellent both to think about and to use as cocktail party chatter.
