Hatchette Audio Book Giveaway of Malcolm Gladwell's What the Dog Saw and Other Adventures

I have read all of Malcolm Gladwells books but none of his articles. When offered the chance to review What the Dog Saw and Other Adventures, I jumped at it. I'm so excited to be able to offer a giveaway of 3 copies of Malcolm Gladwell's latest book, What the Dog Saw and Other Adventures. Thanks so much to Anna and Hatchette Book Group for sponsoring the giveaway!

About the Book, courtesy of the publisher:

Over the past decade, Malcolm Gladwell has become the most gifted and influential journalist in America. In The New Yorker, his writings are such must-reads that the magazine charges advertisers significantly more money for ads that run within his articles. With his #1 bestsellers, The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers, he has reached millions of readers. And now the very best and most famous of his New Yorker pieces are collected in a brilliant and provocative anthology. Among the pieces: his investigation into why there are so many different kinds of mustard but only one kind of ketchup; a surprising assessment of what makes for a safer automobile; a look at how we hire when we can't tell who's right for the job; an examination of machine built to predict hit movies; the reasons why homelessness might be easier to solve than manage; his famous profile of inventor and entrepreneur Ron Popeil; a look at why employers love personality tests; a dissection of Ivy League admissions and who gets in; the saga of the quest to invent the perfect cookie; and a look at hair dye and the hidden history of postwar America.

For the millions of Malcolm Gladwell fans, this anthology is like a greatest hits compilation-a mix tape from America's alpha mind.

About the Author:

Malcolm Gladwell is a staff writer for The New Yorker. He was formerly a business and science reporter at the Washington Post.

  6. I read The Tipping Points- Basically Gladwell talks about social behaviors and how they work; things like fashions and crime. It's easy reading and fascinating.
