I'd read several of the essays in this book already, but they certainly held up to a reread. Gladwell is endlessly fascinating, and I think the long essay format works well for him - it's enough to get some meat in, but not so much that I tire of, say, the market forces of ketchup. The essay on the Pill is particularly interesting, and the careful setup and takedown of FBI profilers was great as well - it made me want to go read more about cold-reading. Overall, good stuff.
