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.
- 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.
