Brilliant, it's a story, a journey, a podcast, a discovery. Big information in bite size pieces. Real, honest, funny.

Having visited many of the places he talks about, it reminded me of my own joy, shock or awkward moments. An easy read told with humour and realism.

Too much. Blushing. Noooo. Sad. Too honest. Shame. Loved her early stuff more. Wish she can be happy now.

I started circuit training and felt like listening to a physically motivating book.
I picked the right book my muscle daren't complain! What blew me away was a young ladies understanding of herself. Admire the strengthen bit seriously admire the discipline. Thanks for getting me through 4 weeks of circuit training of which I will continue.

Brilliant, a classic Malcolm Gladwell book combined with an entertaining podcast feel.
I really like the journey he takes you on, off on behavioural tangents, you have to go with it and enjoy the ride. You can feel sad, enlightened, annoyed, disappointed but that's the best bit whatever he writes gets a reaction and hopefully we learn something and optimistically we improve how we act.
Now I understand where some of his podcast materials came from recently ;-)

I didn't want this book to end.
I ran my first marathon in January 2008 20 months after my Dad died and less than 30days after my step Dad died.
It was just something I did, I've now realised the importance of that time on my own mental health.
I too am not a typical runner and could totally relate to this book. Brilliant, dare I say it's given the bug to have another go!

I love non fiction and the way Malcolm Gladwell takes you on a fact exploration journey. I'd read anything he writes and listen to every one if his podcasts.
I didn't give 5 stars because I'm having a downer on America right now and there was so many American references, enough already *said in a New York droll*

I lost patience years ago with phone in shows. I can't stomach listening to people who bleat second hand stories without checking any facts.
I am however completely fascinated with why people think the way they do.
I loved this book of distilled chat show listening. Please write another!

I don't usually like the most popular books but this one was different; what an amazing story with a whole lot of sole searching.

Classic ranting

Classic David ranting... clever and as he admits freely, full of pessimism. My favourite ranting.
