If you find that you like his writing then let me know and I'll send you
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
Outliers: The Story of Success
. I just can't get into his work, but perhaps you'll find something different.

I've heard The Tipping Point is pretty obvious. I wanted to try at least one since the president of my university speaks of Blink and Outliers often, in fact I suspect they form his decision making principles. I wanted to at least gain some understanding of where he's coming from. I appreciate that though Mikki... I guess I'll let you know!

I totally agree with you re: "in the end I find this book to say very little in the end..." I like the way he writes and the evidence he puts forth are usually really interesting stories, but I always find his books to be journal articles masquerading as books.
I've decided to just listen to all of his radio appearances, because he's really compelling in person. I like Malcolm Gladwell condensed.

I liked your review though I rated it much higher as I found his book to be very insightful about the murky topic of training your intuition. You hit on some good points that he could follow up on in a second book.
