TNR's Isaac Chotiner on Gladwell's New Book
A thoughtful review of Malcolm Gladwell's latest book from The New Republic. From what I've read of Gladwell's work (with delight, I should add), I tend to accept Chotiner's critique.

If you haven't yet, here's yet another chance to read Gladwell's masterful Ketchup Conundrum, which I have recommended before. As Chotiner says, Gladwell is a master of anecdotes. Just take him with a pinch of salt when he extrapolates and theorizes on the basis of his anecdotes. But those alone are worth reading his stuff, IMHO.

מאמר משובח


נאלצתי לקרוא לאחרונה יותר מדי גלאדוול ועל גלאדוול. המאמר מציין יפה את כל הבעיות שמצאתי בכתיבה שלו, ועוד יותר בכתיבה המתלקקת עליו-עצמו.
