Malcolm Gladwell : A winning way with words


I met Malcolm Gladwell about ten years ago in the pages of the The New Yorker. I liked his words a lot, and would always read anything written by this English born fellow. Although he now lives in New York City, he grew up in rural Ontario, and still speaks like a Canadian.

I've read two of his books,
The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference and Blink. My husband gave our son Outliers for Christmas, and it's on my list to read in the new year.

Check out his website, linked above. He also has blog on his website.

I'm a big fan of The Tipping Point and Blink as well. I can't wait to dive into Outliers. I saw him on Stephen Colbert talking about it a while ago and I think he's just fascinating.
