New York Times Bestselling Author

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of six New York Times bestsellers — “The Tipping Point,” “Blink,” “Outliers,” “What the Dog Saw,” “David and Goliath,” and “Talking to Strangers.” He has been named one of the 100 most influential people by TIME magazine and one of the Foreign Policy’s Top Global Thinkers.

His newest book, “The Bomber Mafia: A Dream, a Temptation, and the Longest Night of the Second World War” (April 2021), was inspired by the four-part series about General Curtis LeMay on his podcast “Revisionist History.” In it, Gladwell weaves together the stories of a Dutch genius and his homemade computer, a band of brothers in central Alabama, a British psychopath, and pyromaniacal chemists at Harvard to examine one of the greatest moral challenges in modern American history.

Gladwell also has a newly released audiobook titled “Miracle and Wonder: Conversations with Paul Simon.” Published by Pushkin Industries, Malcolm and co-author Bruce Headlam recorded over 30 hours of conversation with Simon. The result is an intimate audio biography of one of America’s most popular songwriters. Brimming with music and conversation, “Miracle and Wonder” is a window into Simon’s legendary career, what it means to be alive as an artist and how to create work that endures.

He has explored how ideas spread in “The Tipping Point,” decision making in “Blink,” and the roots of success in “Outliers.” In his book "David and Goliath," Gladwell examines our understanding of advantages verse disadvantages and the value of adversity.
