What the Dog Saw is a compilation of 19 articles by Malcolm Gladwell that were originally published in The New Yorker which are categorized into three parts. The first part, Obsessives, Pioneers, and other varieties of Minor Genius, describes people who are very good at what they do, but are not necessarily well-known. Part two, Theories, Predictions, and Diagnoses, describes the problems of prediction. This section covers problems such as intelligence failure, and the fall of Enron. The third section, Personality, Character, and Intelligence, discusses a wide variety of psychological and sociological topics ranging from the difference between early and late bloomers and criminal profiling.
Covering everything from criminology to ketchup, job interviews to dog training, What the Dog Saw explores how the most ordinary subjects can illuminate the most extraordinary things about our world.
Malcolm Gladwell selected the essays in What the Dog Saw himself, choosing the stories and ideas that have continued to fascinate and provoke readers long after their publication in The New Yorker. The book is an invaluable gift for his existing fans, and the ideal introduction for new readers.
Malcolm Gladwell has an incomparable gift for interpreting new ideas in the social sciences and making them understandable, practical and valuable to business and general audiences alike.
He’s become so successful at this that he was voted one of HR Magazine’s Most Influential Thinkers - International 2011. This honour recognises the practitioners and thinkers who have had the greatest influence in the field of people strategy. Newsweek chose him for the Top 10 New Thought Leaders of the Decade. Previously, TIME Magazine named Malcolm one of its 100 Most Influential People of 2005. He was chosen for Foreign Policy’s Top 100 Global Thinkers 2010 and 2009 list and is ranked number ten on The Thinkers 50 2011.
Malcolm is a staff writer for The New Yorker. His editor describes his work as a new genre of story: an idea-driven narrative that’s focused on the everyday and combines research with material that’s more personal, social and historical. Malcolm has put together a collection of his best writing for his new book, What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures. He was previously a reporter for The Washington Post (1987-1996), where he covered business, science, and then served as the newspaper’s New York City bureau chief. He graduated from the University of Toronto, Trinity College, with a degree in history. He was born in England, grew up in rural Ontario, and now lives in New York City.
Malcolm is an extraordinary speaker: always on target, aware of the context and the concerns of the audience, informative and practical, poised, eloquent and delightfully warm and funny. He has an unsurpassed ability to entertain you and challenge your perspective at the same time.
