I really enjoy reading Gladwell. Unlike many of the reviewers here on Goodreads, I don't feel threatened by Gladwell's "pop" narratives--instead, I feel enriched, even as I am aware that he is purposefully skimming over deeper or dissonant material. He goes, instead, right to the heart of the good stuff. He is the kind of visionary writer that we need more of--a synthesizer of information, weaving and connecting disparate pieces of research to form suprising insight, much the same way a poet strings a metaphor from seemingly unrelated things.
