Overview

The complete Malcolm Gladwell collection is now available in a hardcover set. The set includes:

The Tipping Point

"What someone once said about the great Edmund Wilson is as true of Malcolm Gladwell: he gives ideas the quality of action. Here he's written a wonderful page-turner about a fascinating idea that should affect the way every thinking person looks at the world." -Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker and The New New Thing

"A fascinating book that makes you see the world in a different way." -Fortune

"Undeniably compelling...terrifically rewarding." -Claire Dederer, Seattle Times

"Gladwell has a knack for rendering complex theories in clear, elegant prose, and he makes a charismatic tour guide." -Christopher Hawthorne, San Francisco Chronicle

Blink

"Readers acquainted with Gladwell's articles and his 2000 bestseller The Tipping Point will have high anticipations for this volume; those expectations will be met. The book features the fascinating case studies, skilled interweavings of psychological experiments and explanations and unexpected connections among disparate phenomenon that are Gladwell's impressive trademark. -Howard Gardner, The Washington Post

"Royally entertaining." -Lev Grossman, Time

"Mr. Gladwell is a gifted storyteller, able to find memorable characters and delightful anecdotes wherever he goes." -George Anders, Wall Street Journal

Outliers

"Outliers is a compelling read with an important message." -Economist

"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today." -New York Times Book Review

"A fascinating and entertaining book, one that exposes the rarely acknowledged forces behind success." -Cleveland Plain Dealer

What the Dog Saw

"This book full of short conversation pieces is a collection that plays to the author's strengths. It underscores his way of finding suitably quirky subjects (the history of women's hair-dye advertisements; the secret of Heinz's unbeatable ketchup; even the effects of women's changing career patterns on the number of menstrual periods they experience in their lifetimes) and using each as gateway to some larger meaning. It illustrates how often he sets up one premise (i.e. that crime profiling helps track down serial killers) only to destroy it." -Janet Maslin, New York Times

Gladwell is a writer of many gifts. His nose for the untold back story will have readers repeatedly muttering, "Gee, that's interesting!" He avoids shopworn topics, easy moralization and conventional wisdom, encouraging his readers to think again and think different. His prose is transparent, with lucid explanations and a sense that we are chatting with the experts ourselves. Some chapters are masterpieces in the art of the essay. -Steven Pinker, New York Times Book Review
