Hi, I'm Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and--most recently--David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants. Ask me anything!
For those of you who don't know me well, I was born in England, grew up in Canada, and now I live in New York, where I work for the New Yorker magazine. I write about anything that interests me. Over the years that has included big things like decision making and crime and little things like the difference between ketchup and mustard. At the moment I'm most excited about my new book--David and Goliath. It looks at what really constitutes an advantage. When is it useful to have gone through adversity, or to have a handicap? Is it possible to be too rich? Should you really go to the best school you can? The book is just out in paperback in the U.K. Ask me anything about it!
UPDATE: Ok folks. The party is over! It's been very fun, and thanks to all who wrote in with questions.
