I’m a big fan of Malcom Gladwell’s well-known books. This site (The Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator), created by another fan, nonetheless pokes a bit of fun at the author’s well-known style of intellectual journalims. My favorite is Slurp: What Kitten’s Tongues Teach Us About Derivatives. Another favorite: Subtitles: How Secondary Titles Inflate a Sense of Importance.
The New York Post wrote a recent story about the site’s creator. From the story: “Cory Bortnicker, a writer for the financial site Minyanville and co-creator of the Book Generator, said the idea came up a few months ago, but only took “three days” to actually put together. “I’ve read most of them,” he said of Gladwell’s books, “and I’m actually a big fan of his work. I think he’s a fun writer. I think it’s great anytime someone can bring science to a large audience like that.”
