What the Dog Saw

Book cover
This is remarkable work of Canadian journalist, author, and pop sociologist, considered to be an outstanding researcher of extraordinary. What the Dog Saw contains a great deal of his best writings, full of liveliness and unfailing curiosity. This collection of articles for the New Yorker is divided into three parts. The first portraits what he calls obsessives and minor geniuses; the second deals with unusual ways of thinking and the third focuses on how we make predictions about people. The arguments he raises are clear, defiant and significant, inducing to think for oneself after reading them. Gladwell tells us for instance about the inventors of automatic vegetable choppers and hair dye to Cesar Millan, the American “Dog Whisperer”, and Nassim Taleb, the US banker who turned his nose up at the investment strategies of George Soros and Warren Buffet and made himself a pile of money.
It is a real fount of numerous uncommon things, peculiar people and of everything out of the ordinary, which will make the reader astonish all through the narration.
