I bought Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers" on google play as a e-book and loved it, so after purchasing a hard copy of it for my dad for fathers day, I also was going to buy "blink" and "Tipping Point". I decided on this after seeing and interview with Malcolm Gladwell about the piece. It honestly just feels awesome to read, and has an actual textured feel to it, like a jean type of feel. The writing of course is amazing! Brings in so many great stories and concepts, it is an easy read, but is packed with information that really helps to broaden your views on what we think of as normal, and just accept every day,
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?!

This is an excellent collection of Malcolm Gladwell's work. The quality of the books is excellent, hard covered with some type of fabric, which makes holding the book a good experience. Inside, the pages are thick, big and I think letters are a bit magnified. It is even decorated with illustrations on almost every page.
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!
