Being Malcolm Gladwell

Since I'll never actually take the time to write down all my thoughts about the complex entity that is Malcolm Gladwell, being quoted about some of them will have to suffice. Quoting myself: "I think he should be filed under self-help. Read his work closely and there's something about it that is supposed to make you, the reader, feel better about yourself. You may seem insignificant -- but you're actually an influencer! You might make rash decisions -- but this is good!" (For the record, I think Gladwell is a magnificent stylist, but also find his rhetoric occasionally problematic.)
