I’m going to make an effort to watch a few of these a week, as they are some of the most insightful talks I’ve ever heard.
I didn’t hear of Malcolm Gladwell until very recently. He’s been mentioned a lot because of his new book, Outliers, and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. For some reason I pictured an old gray guy but I couldn’t have been farther off. He’s 45, a British born Canadian journalist whose mother is a Jamaican psychotherapist and whose father is an English civil engineer.
I don’t know what it was about the tomato sauce speech, but I found it captivating.
And so, I bought Outliers, which should keep me occupied to and from work for the next two or three weeks.
