Malcolm Gladwell


Recommended Posts

He narrates his own audiobooks. He's definitely got a knack for observing various phenomenons within our society and offering some interesting (and sometimes obvious) observations. He also has a knack for systematizing these things in relatively easy-to-digest ways. His books are nice easy reads.

Anyone interested in listening to his audiobooks: The Tipping Points, Outliers, or Blink? Send me a PM.

It's true what he said about january babies and tier hockey. There are always fewer players born in December in the NHL. Though Barnsley and Thompson said it first.

Yeah, I found that anecdote very interesting! I also get the impression that Malcolm "lifts" a lot of his material, but he does give a lot of credit to others in his books. Have you read the three books I mentioned above? It's great that Gladwell's Canadian, too.

Here's some cool video with him at the 92nd street Y in NYC:

Associated videos on the right side of the page also have a few long interviews with Gladwell. I like the guy.
