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.
