Exercise caution - bit of marketing sleight of hand here,
This review is from: The Person and the Situation (Paperback)
For clarity (and whilst it does state this in the description, although not before it has liberally applied Malcolm Gladwell's name to attract attention), this is a book originally written in 1996, presumably to a fairly muted reception, which is now trying to breathe new life into itself by associating itself with Malcolm Gladwell. Gladwell has provided a short introduction in which, presumably for a fee, he acknowleges the authors' contribution to the field of behavioural economics.
Gladwell is an interesting, thought-provoking, highly intelligent author capable of creating fascinating insights by bringing together seemingly unrelated information. This book, by contrast, is flat and lifeless, and serves only to illustrate how much Gladwell and others have raised the bar.

Gladwell has not been paid a fee for his foreword.
