Malcolm Gladwell, who wrote the excellent article on head injuries in football and dogfighting that Brian linked to earlier this week, will be on PTI today on ESPN at 5:30 EDT.
I believe the show re-airs at 6:30 on ESPN2.
i love malcolm gladwell
His non-football stuff at the New Yorker is almost always excellent.
He is an absolute freak who writes amazing books. That's all I got.
OT - check out some other stuff by another favorite author, Jared Diamond.
I am in the process of finishing Outliers right now. So far it has been an enjoyable read.
Agree with Jared Diamond, great author. Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse are excellent books.
OT: I pre-ordered, SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance. Hopefully it is as good as the first one.
Did you notice how much love Gladwell gives Michigan in Outliers? In almost every chapter he talks about someone awesome who went to or works at Michigan. Good book.
i somehow missed the entire segment. oh well
