Malcolm Gladwell and Daniel Pink (#101) Duration: 56:30 TVG

Malcolm Gladwell is author of the bestsellers The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference, (2000) and Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (2005). In his newest book, Gladwell focuses his extraordinary mix of story-telling and intuitive thinking on the world of "outliers" - the best and the brightest, most famous and most successful. What makes high achievers different? His answer lies not in paying attention to what successful people are like, but in paying attention to where they are from: their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncrasies of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what is takes to be a great soccer player, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band. Malcolm Gladwell has been a staff writer with The New Yorker Magazine since 1996, and in 2005 he was named one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People". Daniel H. Pink is the author of a trio of provocative books on the changing world of work. His newest is The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need, the first American business book in the Japanese comic format known as manga. Before that, he wrote A Whole New Mind, a long-running New York Times and Business Week bestseller that has been translated into 16 languages. His first book was Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself. He is currently a contributing editor at Wired, provides analysis of business trends on CNN, CNBC, NPR and other networks, and lectures to corporations, associations, and universities around the world on economic transformation and the new workplace. A free agent himself, Dan held his last real job in the White House, where he served from 1995 to 1997 as chief speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore.
