Cathy said:
I liked the first chapter, but then each chapter seemed to be repetitious "fill" in order to get enough words to fill out a book. This whole concept was good, but everything I needed to know could have been accomplished in a short article, not a whole book. I would not recommend this book.

Ted's Review said:
Cathy’s comments are right on target. Overall, I found the book interesting, but he really did sound like he was trying to fill up pages to make it into a book. He would just go on and on and on about the same thing. He REALLY needs a good editor. That not withstanding, it’s still a good book.

Gladwell is often irritating and stuck in the same prejudices as the rest of the world. The chapter in Blink about Amadou Diallo is the best thing he’s written about race. I agree with the other reviewers that he’s repetitious (as with all his books). Still, they’re fun, light reads, even a bit thought-provoking.
