In moments of crisis, some people choke, others panic. There's a big difference and the author gives fascinating examples of how this effects our lives. In another of his chapters based on 22 brilliant recently published articles, Gladwell asks what an employer can learn about job candidates during an interview. Not much, research shows, unless you're willing to throw out everything you think you know about judging the character of a person you've just met. Filled with great personal stories and entertaining interviews, this book is the perfect gift for anybody, including you.— Bob
