What the Dog Saw: and other adventures by Malcolm Gladwell

I read Malcolm Gladwell's Blink! a while back, and although I found it quite interesting it did strike me as being an article that had been stretched to the length of full book. The was an awful lot of repetition to the point where I wanted to say "Enough! I get it already!"

So when I saw this book become available, which is a collection of his previous articles, I thought it would be more my cup of tea. I was right. The short articles in here are very interesting and they cover an amazing range of topics from ketchup to dangerous dogs.

2.0 out of 5 stars A big disappointment, 13 Oct 2010

I bought this album purely because I liked Trisha's Yearwood's rendition of Rosanne's song "Seven Year Ache". I wasn't disappointed; Ms Cash is a thoughful songwriter, and a very talented singer. The title track, "I'll Change for you", "Closer Than I Appear" and "Hope Against" hope are my favourite tracks. The much talked about duet with her late father "September When It Comes" is good too, but this is definately Rosanne's album. Highly recommended
