I've only read 1/3 of the book so this is only a partial review. But at the same time, the fact that I've only read 1/3 after a month says this is a slow read. Compared to Gladwell's other work this one is having a hard time keeping me interested. I read reviews similar review but wanted to give it a shot. Interesting stories but alot...alot of detail in each. I find myself skimming ahead to wade through the minutia. If you're looking for a continuation of Blink, Outliers then this may not be for you. If you're looking for more concise, thoughtful Gladwell writing then you may like.
