Malcolm Gladwell - Way Overrated

Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator

It is fun to play with the The Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator made by Cory and Brett, a parody of new book titles that could be written by the popular author Malcolm Gladwell :-O

I think Malcolm Gladwell is way overrated, and this is before his recent spat with the tech community when he downplays significance of social media. I've decided his works are low in substance after reading his most popular title The Tipping Point. He is a journalist, not a scientist. He is good at writing riveting stories to enliven the dry sociology theories. But it becomes ridiculous when he goes too far and starts to synthesize his own theory. It is time for someone to make fun of him!
