Malcolm Gladwell times two...

As I've said several times before, Malcolm Gladwell is my favorite science journalist. So I was happy to discover (via Mind Hacks) that New York Magazine has published a lengthy profile of Gladwell which focuses on his upcoming book Outliers.

Also, Gladwell has a new article, entitled "The Uses of Adversity", out in the New Yorker. As usual, fascinating and highly recommended.


  1. Salon also reviewed it and didn't like it. Said Gladwell's defense of his claims left enough holes to drive a lorry/semi through vagueness and generalization.
