What the Dog Saw and other adventures
by Malcolm Gladwell
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Malcolm Gladwell's new book, WHAT THE DOG SAW (Little, Brown and Company; publication date: October 20, 2009), presents nineteen brilliantly researched and provocative essays that exhibit the curiosity his readers love, each with a graceful narrative that leads to a thought-provoking analysis. The explorations here delve into subjects as varied as why some people choke while others panic; how changes meant to make a situation safer — like childproof lids on medicine – don't help because people often compensate with more reckless behavior; and the idea that genius is inextricably tied up with precocity.
