What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell

Malcolm Gladwell writes the most interesting stuff out there. He can take such simple and mundane topics and expand them exponentially. He makes you see the world in an entirely new light.

Before What the Dog Saw, I read Gladwell’s other four works; each one spectacular. This book peaks the same amount of interest however, its lacks the overarching and appealing theme. What the Dog Saw is a collection of Gladwell’s previous articles. I enjoyed the chapters but I felt a bit unsatisfied at the end of the book. It was full enjoyment with a pinch of inadequacy.

It was interesting to read about Enron, the tech bubble, banking economy, and other craziness 5-10 years later. It gives you a sense of history and context.

All in all this is a great book, but not the best by Gladwell. Having said that, I cannot wait for Gladwell to write another book.
