    I read Outliers and was very impressed with it, read it in two sittings as a matter of fact. Within the last month, I also devoured his older work, Tipping point. I have yet to read his other works, but I will definitely keep an eye out. For those who are interested:

    I have to say that I really enjoy his articles as well. The New Yorker is featuring a digital reprint of his piece on the Spanish Flu. He has also written a few articles on American football and participated in a Video: Malcolm Gladwell Argues for Banning College Football : The New Yorker debate on the subject. Definitely one of the more interesting writers on a variety of subjects to listen to, whether it's through his books or shorter musings.

    I have only read the two books you mentioned in the op but I really like him too. He is interesting and amusing, just what I like in a non-fiction writer :)

    I'm a HUGE fan of Malcolm Gladwell! He's definitely my favorite author right now.

    I first got introduced to his works in 2007 when I was commuting to / from my job and had a 1.5 hour drive each way. A friend suggested I listen to his books on tape (well, technically mp3) and I've been hooked ever since.

    He's an amazing storyteller and hearing him read his own books is awesome! It's interesting how much of what he's written has impacted various aspects of my life.

    I've seen a handful of his interviews, including 60 Minutes, and he genuinely seems like a really nice guy... brilliant and nice.
