Malcolm Gladwell

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Malcolm Gladwell was named by the New York Times in 2005 as one of its 100 most influential people. His name has also achieved the status of an adjective, Gladwellian. He has written a number of bestselling books including, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw, The Tipping Point and David and Goliath. All of his books have been New York Times Best Sellers. He has written for The New Yorker magazine since 1996. He also hosts the podcast, “Revisionist History” and lectures extensively. These sessions will cover Gladwell's fascinating take on some of the most interesting research in the social sciences. He answers such questions as why outstanding hockey players are all born in the same several months, the 10,000 hour rule to achieve mastery in any area, why planes crash and much, much more. We will look at excerpts from his books, articles, lectures, podcasts and Ted Talks. After these sessions you should never be at a loss for conversation starters. Facilitator: Marvin Goldstein
