Andrew Orlowski, who writes for The Register is clearly not impressed by Malcolm Gladwell, the author of populist books about big ideas. In The dumb, dumb world of Malcolm Gladwell Orlowski picks apart Gladwell’s style and lack of substance.
In my opinion Orlowski’s criticism is fair. I read parts of Gladwell’s two most famous books, The Tipping Point and Blink, before deciding they are all about what Basil Fawlty charmingly describes as “stating the bleeding obvious”.
Or am I missing something here?
