Malcolm Gladwell

I recently listened to four fascinating audiobooks by Malcolm Gladwell, and it was time well spent. Gladwell writes well and offers accessible yet penetrating insights about human nature and the world we live in.

From his bio:

Malcolm Gladwell has been a staff writer with The New Yorker magazine since 1996. His 1999 profile of Ron Popeil won a National Magazine Award, and in 2005 he was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. He is the author of four books, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference (2000), Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (2005), and Outliers: The Story of Success (2008), all of which were number one New York Times bestsellers. His latest book, What the Dog Saw (2009), is a compilation of stories published in The New Yorker.

  1. Thanks Andy, the Audiobooks may be the way I’ll go also; had my eye on GLadwell for some time following several very positive reviews of his journalism.

  2. Great books. Gladwell has shaped my understanding of the way the world works far more than most other authors I’ve read. One doesn’t have to fully agree with every one of his ideas to appreciate Gladwell’s insights into why things work the way they do.
