description

Malcolm Gladwell focuses on "minor geniuses" and idiosyncratic behavior to illuminate the ways all of us organize experience in this "delightful" (Bloomberg News) collection of writings fromThe New Yorker.

What is the difference between choking and panicking? Why are there dozens of varieties of mustard-but only one variety of ketchup? What do football players teach us about how to hire teachers? What does hair dye tell us about the history of the 20th century?

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of fiveNew York Timesbestsellers:The Tipping Point,Blink, Outliers,What the Dog Saw,andDavid and Goliath.He is also the co-founder of Pushkin Industries, an audio content company that produces the podcastsRevisionist History, which reconsiders things both overlooked and misunderstood, andBroken Record,whe...
