Gladwell is an entertaining writer as always, but this book is an even worse example of cherry-picked anecdotes and examples than Outliers.

More of Don's books…
Don DeLillo
“It's all about time, dimwit time, inferior time, people checking watches and other devices, other reminders. This is time draining out of our lives. Cities were built to measure time, to remove time from nature. There's an endless counting down, he said. When you strip away surfaces, when you see into it, what's left is terror. This is the thing that literature was meant to cure. The epic poem, the bedtime story.”
Don DeLillo, Point Omega

Richard Yates
“It's a disease. Nobody thinks or feels or cares any more; nobody gets excited or believes in anything except their own comfortable little God damn mediocrity.”
Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“..the heart's memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good, and [that] thanks to this artifice we manage to endure the burden of the past”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Joseph Conrad
“Felicity, felicity - how shall I say it? - is quaffed out of a golden cup in every latitude: the flavour is with you - with you alone, and you can make it as intoxicating as you please.”
Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“It's enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude
