Bokanmeldelse: What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures, av Malcolm Gladwell

Malcolm Gladwell er en bestselgende forfatter med en flott evne til å ta en rekke forskjellige emner og forskningsstudier, og ta dem opp på en interessant, enkel, og lærerik måte. What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures er en samling av noen av hans beste artikler fra avisen The New Yorker, og selv om du ikke er nødt til å kjøpe boka, eller lydboken (som jeg gjorde), så er artiklene hans absolutt å anbefale.

Om du er som meg og foretrekker å lese ting i papirformat eller lytte på lydbok, løp og kjøp 😉

What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures (Malcolm Gladwell)

Litt mer om forfatteren, Malcolm Gladwell: Jeg kom først over hans verk gjennom en artikkel av Martin Berkhan kalt Malcolm Gladwell on Low Carb Diets, og jeg leste hele artikkelen som Martin henviser til; The Pima Paradox. Det er en meget interessant artikkel med mange gode poenger, og jeg liker skrivestilen til Malcolm meget godt. Derfor valgte jeg å bestille en av hans mange bøker, og valget falt først på Outliers: The Story of Success (bokanmeldelse), som jeg også var veldig fornøyd med.

Enkelt forklart: Malcolm Gladwell er en dyktig forfatter og jeg anbefaler alle å sjekke ut hans verk 🙂

Terningkast for What the Dog Saw: 5


  1. Jeg digger at du driver med bokomtaler. Men kan du bare nevne hvilke temaer han berører i What the Dog Saw?

  2. Takk for det!

    Han berører en rekke emner, i stedet for å skrive mer om det selv kopierer jeg fra beskrivelsen på Amazon;

    «Here is the bittersweet tale of the inventor of the birth control pill, and the dazzling inventions of the pasta sauce pioneer Howard Moscowitz. Gladwell sits with Ron Popeil, the king of the American kitchen, as he sells rotisserie ovens, and divines the secrets of Cesar Millan, the «dog whisperer» who can calm savage animals with the touch of his hand. He explores intelligence tests and ethnic profiling and «hindsight bias» and why it was that everyone in Silicon Valley once tripped over themselves to hire the same college graduate.

    «Good writing,» Gladwell says in his preface, «does not succeed or fail on the strength of its ability to persuade. It succeeds or fails on the strength of its ability to engage you, to make you think, to give you a glimpse into someone else’s head.»What the Dog Saw is yet another example of the buoyant spirit and unflagging curiosity that have made Malcolm Gladwell our most brilliant investigator of the hidden extraordinary.»
