This book was published in 2009. Malcolm Gladwell is the author of bestsellers such as The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers. What the Dog Saw contains Malcolm Gladwell’s favourite pieces written for The New Yorker when he was the staff writer.
The book is non-fiction and it is investigative work of events happening during the times of his writing. It is an interesting read and Malcolm Gladwell’s analyses were a surprise for me. He provided clarity and dispelled myths of superficial understandings. The last few chapters in Part Three (Personality, Character and Intelligence) were most interesting for me.
I got to understand The Black Swan written by Nassim Taleb through the pages of Malcolm Gladwell’s story written by him in 2002 before Nassim Taleb became famous with The Black Swan. There are many other interesting stories and it is worth a read at your own leisure. What the Dog Saw is a story about the famous dog whisperer, Cesar Millan and his mastery in handling difficult dog with behavioural issues.
