User Review  - Tom - Goodreads

I gave this three stars, not because Gladwell's writing lacks appeal; to the contrary, I find Gladwell's writing fascinating. I formed a bromance with Gladwell after reading his Tipping Point as well ... Read full review

Very thought provoking, but I really liked David and Goliath better. More examples and easier to draw the connections. Read full review
