About this book
A selection of 'greatest hits' essays from the bestselling non-fiction writer. From criminology to ketchup, job interviews to dog training, Gladwell takes everyday subjects and shows us surprising new ways of looking at them, and the world around us. 'Gladwell is the best kind of writer - the kind who makes you feel like you're a genius rather than that he's a genius' "Times"
Covers everything from criminology to spaghetti sauce to show how the most ordinary subjects can illuminate the things about ourselves and our world. Looking under the surface of the seemingly mundane, this title explores the underdogs, the overlooked, the curious, the miraculous and the disastrous.
