What the dog saw and other adventures

Brings together, for the first time, the best of Gladwell's writing from The New Yorker in the past decade, including: the bittersweet tale of the inventor of the birth control pill; the dazzling inventions of the pasta sauce pioneer Howard Moscowitz; spotlighting Ron Popeil, the king of the American kitchen; and the secrets of Cesar Millan, the "dog whisperer." Gladwell also explores intelligence tests, ethnic profiling and "hindsight bias," and why it was that everyone in Silicon Valley once tripped over themselves to hire the same college graduate.

Here is the bittersweet tale of the inventor of the birth control pill, and the dazzling inventions of the pasta sauce pioneer Howard Moscowitz. Gladwell sits with Ron Popeil, the king of the American kitchen, as he sells rotisserie ovens, and divines the secrets of Cesar Millan, the "dog whisperer" who can calm savage animals with the touch of his hand. He explores intelligence tests and ethnic profiling and "hindsight bias" and why it was that everyone in Silicon Valley once tripped over themselves to hire the same college graduate. "Good writing," Gladwell says in his preface, "does not succeed or fail on the strength of its ability to persuade. It succeeds or fails on the strength of its ability to engage you, to make you think, to give you a glimpse into someone else's head." What the Dog Saw >is yet another example of the buoyant spirit and unflagging curiosity that have made Malcolm Gladwell our most brilliant investigator of the hidden extraordinary."@en
  • "HauptbeschreibungMit seinen Büchern verändert Malcolm Gladwell unsere Sicht auf die Welt und auf uns selbst. In seinem neuen Buch zeigt er an vielen Beispielen, wie hilfreich es ist, die Perspektive eines anderen einzunehmen. Aus scheinbar nebensächlichen Themen und Personen zaubert er verblüffende Erkenntnisse. So erfahren wir aus dem Beispiel von Shirley Polykoff und ihren Slogans für Haarfärbemittel etwas über den Wandel im Selbstverständnis der Frauen. Und das Beispiel des Hundeflüsterers" Cesar Millan zeigt besonders deutlich, wie wichtig es ist, sich den Blick eines anderen, sei es Mensc."
