Malcolm Gladwell Comes to the UK


It's hard to describe how excited I'm about this, but i just booked my ticket to see Malcolm Gladwell live at the Lowry in Salford.

Mr Gladwell's books (Outliers: The Story of Success and Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking) have been great influences on the way I view my work, studies, BJJ and other hobbies. His writing is very refreshing and mind-opening and his research is always very thorough.

I was initially googling his name because I wanted to quote him in an email to Caleb at the Fightworks Podcast about their latest episode (more specifically the 10,000 hour rule) and was so excited to see that he was coming to the north west of England in about 10 days!

This should be great and of course expect a review.

His way of thinking is definitely interesting. While I don't agree with everything he says, I do hope that his work will help loosen the way breed successful people.
