“What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures” is collection of Malcolm Gladwell‘s New Yorker pieces and hits squarely on a quality I love in books — it makes me more curious and questions what I think I know. Those qualities are things I love about journalism and non-fiction writing.
It covers everything from the cloud of information prior to the 9/11 attacks and Enron to how to choose NFL quarterbacks.
Gladwell’s books (I read Outliers earlier this year and Tipping Point long ago.) are easy to read, making a book to read while traveling or waiting for an appointment. This latest book now makes me want to read SuperFreakonomics by Stephen D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner.
