Quote of the Day

If my books appear to a reader to be oversimplified, then you shouldn't read them: you're not the audience!

- Malcolm Gladwell talks about his new book David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants.

I agree. We are all cognitive misers while the world in inversely proportional to that.  His writing are tailor made to feed our limited capacity to understand and that doesn't mean he is over-simplifying. He is one of those rarest of writers who get's it and writes for people who are humble enough to get it.
