3 books by Malcolm Gladwell

All 3 of his books are so interesting. All are a different way of thinking and looking at things. You can read them in any order. Blink may have been my favorite because I don't think the way other people think. And this book was very validating. I should not say I don't think the way other people think. I believe I think the way other creative people think but not how most business people think. And that means years of working in companies where I would need to think creatively and then explain myself in a way that the numbers people could understand me. (I had one boss who maintained if you could not see it, it did not exist.)

And we just got Outliers and it is a very interesting look at success, successful people and how they got where they are. And as usual it is not how you think it would have happened.

And all very easy, quick, interesting reads. And they are good books on CD. Great for Summer car travel.
