The Guy With the Fro
Under all of that fro lies an intelligent man named Malcolm Gladwell. Born in England and growing up in Ontario, Gladwell currently lives in New York City with a degree in history from the University of Toronto. He started off as a reporter with the Washington Post covering both business and science and moving on to serve as the newspaper's New York City bureau chief from 1987 to 1996. Since 1996, Gladwell has been a staff writer with The New Yorker magazine. In 2005 he was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. Gladwell has successfully written 4 books, all of which were number one New York Times bestsellers. These include "The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference," "Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking," "Outliers: The Story of Success," and his most recent in 2009 "What the Dog Saw".
