What the Dog Saw is a compendium of essays previously published in The New Yorker and it might be shortly described as a user's manual for better understanding of the mechanisms governing the world we live in.
The big diversity of subjects is enhancing the global quality of the reading, as every new story leads us into a different environment, thus keeping us alert and curious until the last page is turned. And then if you start searching for more titles, books and conferences of the same author, as I did, it should not take you too much time to become one of his fans.

I have read the Blink, Outliers and What the dog saw. The main ideas and propositions are intriguing so you buy the book, but then, apart from a couple of interesting facts or statistics, I get bored reading pages and pages of the same stuff. Yet, Gladwell may publish another one and ... just because of the quality/popularity of the idea, i may have to buy it :S
