Fast, paced narrative that got into the weeds on some pretty heady topics in a way that was approachable and understandable for non-market types.
Ignorance is bliss; knowledge is dangerous
Possibly. I don't generally listen to/read books more than once.
Jennifer Senior - she was brilliant as herself
Great practical tips on big-picture parenting theory.
All parents should read this.
Solid ideas, but nothing innovative.
Maybe if they were in marketing.
I couldn't imagine this as a movie.
Top 5% for sure
When they were bought by Disney through Steve Job's negotiations
Definitely wanted to keep going.
Classic underdog story
The ongoing battle between Sega of Japan and Sega of the US
Moments of laughter
Yes - central tenets of the books were really interesting and Gladwell is a great storyteller.
Yes - with reservations.
Nope - not much more to the argument.
As with his other books, Gladwell grossly over-generalizes to get his point across and he usually doesn't need to. His points are throughout-provoking in and of themselves.
Didn't read the print version.
Less episodic with more of a through line.
How to be a real man.
Great cadence to the storytelling.
Yes - I think I probably missed much of the subtlety .
The way the author would foreshadow main plot points and still hold suspense.
Brought characters to life.
A little long for that.
I read the first two books and really enjoyed them - this one took an extremely dark and disgusting turn.
I got physically ill during some of the scenes and literally broke out in a cold sweat and almost passed out. I have a strong stomach and normally like books like this - I really enjoyed the first two. I don't know if it was the authors intent to elicit such a reaction. I can't help but think it was - it was highly unnecessary as it was a good plot that didn't need the over-the-top gruesome nature.
