    Over the past decade, Malcolm Gladwell has become the most gifted and influential journalist in America. In The New Yorker, his writings are such must-reads that the magazine charges advertisers significantly more money for ads that run within his articles. With his #1 best sellers, The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, he has reached millions of readers. And now the very best and most famous of his New Yorker pieces are collected in a brilliant and provocative anthology.

    Rudi says: "Not Gladwell's best - and a recording problem"
    "Disapointing"
    Overall

    In contrast with the outliers or the tipping point, this book does not have a general theme. It is a collection of a few New Yorker Articles. I don't see any point in republishing the articles as a book. The general ideas can be traced to the blink, the tipping point and the outliers.

    Where did the universe come from? What was there before it? What will the future bring? And finally, why is there something rather than nothing? Krauss’ answers to these and other timeless questions, in a wildly popular lecture on YouTube, has attracted almost a million viewers. One of the few prominent scientists to have actively crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss reveals that modern science is indeed addressing the question of why there is something rather than nothing—with surprising and fascinating results.

    Dennis says: "If you are new to the subject, listen to it!"
    "A book of nothing"

    Any additional comments?

    - extremely biased and subjective
    - full of trivia. The only new thing was the dark energy and well he does not tell what is dark energy except a name. Apparently they could not justify the flatness of the universe and they just made up the dark energy.
    - Irrelevant chapter names and even worse quotes at the beginning of each chapter. One quote was from Donald Rumsfeld saying there are unknown unknowns!!!!!!!!
    Was a total waste of money.
