Malcolm Gladwell is a total original. Reading his books will change the way you look at the world.

Drawing upon psychology, history, science, business, and politics, Malcolm looks for the counterintuitive in what we all take for granted to better understand how something works, how people think, what makes certain people successful, why outliers thrive, why David beat Goliath and why things go viral.

He says: “There is more going on beneath the surface than we think, and more going on in little, finite moments of time than we would guess.”
