I've been a fan of Malcolm Gladwell since I read The Tipping Point. And after following that up with Blick, it is clear that Mr. Gladwell is a fascinating author on subjects that are quite interesting, even when it falls outside my normal range of reading material (that being mostly geeky ). Apparently on Tuesday, a new book of his entitled Outliers: The Story of Success is coming out. That in itself is enough to pique my interest. However, it turns out that, as part of his book tour, Mr. Gladwell is speaking in Toronto on Dec 1 at the University of Toronto Rotman School of Business. And the price of the tickets (only $31 and which you can get here) includes a copy of the book. I'm signed up already and if you have found his books interesting, here is a chance to hear him in person.
