Christina all four of gladwell's books are great, especially "the outliers." he gives a lot of think about.

Susan I'm finding the tipping point redundant and long, but plan to finish it, because it is does make you think (and a friend loaned it to me to read).

Arthur Lasky Hang in there. What doesn't kill you, will make you stronger. :)

Christina wait till you read the "outliers" and "what the dog saw"....

Susan Would you like to tell me. :)??

Christina first of all, no matter when, m.g. presents ideas that just make you think. with the "outliers" one of the things that stuck with me, and inspired me for my own work, was his observation that you have to put in your time, hours, to get somewhere. very little "genius" is out there. it's elbow grease, hard work, time put in. and a lot of success comes also from the environment you grew up in, your background, etc. i.e. bill gates, the 7th avenue garment district successes, musicians, artists.... "what the dog saw" is a lively series of stories about people, and also a dog (if i remember right) and life through their eyes. it was interesting.

Susan He does give the reader a lot to think about, but I'm still finding the book redundant and am beginning to speed read it.
