The Science of Shopping” by Malcolm Gladwell

 What is the author’s argument and how do they defend their claim? In other words, how does the author write to convince the audience to agree with his/her claim? Be sure to avoid summary in your response. Write an essay where you fully answer this; keep in mind that your essay should propose a thesis, be framed with topic sentences, and offer analysis and textual support from the text. Remember that it should be well-organized and grammatically correct.
