"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to singular talent as exists today."―New York Times Book Review
"Gladwell's real genius is as a storyteller. He's like an omniscient, many-armed Hindu god of anecdotes: he plucks them from every imaginable human endeavor."―Time
"The most original American journalist since the young Tom Wolfe...Nobody else writes the kind of stories he does, because nobody else thinks the way he does."―Baltimore Sun --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I would highly recommend all three of these, and the way it all comes together in this set makes it perfect! If you like books such as freakonomics, which helps to not just simply answer questions, but allow the reader to base their own decisions upon the information provided, you will love these three!
....plus he is Canadian....WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE?!
His books are not a one read type of books, you can return to them as many times as you want, since he inspires thinking on the multiple subjects throughout the books. This collection is durable and I will be coming back to it for years to come!

I do not want to downplay the quality of the typical hardcover prints of these books, as the quality is fine. But the quality of THIS set is much better, in my opinion. First of all, as the books do not have dust covers they have a nice texture to the cover. Second, these books are noticeably bigger -- while the width is simliar, these books are around an inch taller and a half-inch deeper. Third, the paper used for the book feels to be a better quality -- thicker to the touch, feeling as there is more to them (I routinely felt like I was turning multiple pages when I was only turning one). Also, in this version, you do get some drawings by Brian Rea throughout the books -- a nice addition. I happened to note that this set was printed in Italy, while the traditional hard cover books were printed in the USA (this matters to some people).
I have to say I am incredibly pleased with my purchase. If you are a fan of Malcolm Gladwell and your books are showing some wear, I would not hesitate to recommend you treat yourself to this set. They'll look great on your desk, on your book shelf, or in your hands.
