I grabbed this on Audible really just for the two Malcolm Gladwell articles, both of which were pretty good. The other articles were mixed and I was frustrated by the inconsistency in their length. There was a really long article on leaches and another on low fat cookies and they both went on for to long while not being as interesting as the shorter articles.
