Malcolm Gladwell

Enjoying Expensive Lectures

Malcolm Gladwell is my favourite writer at the New Yorker. If you've never read his stuff, you should. It's good. He's also the author of the best-selling books, The Tipping Point and Blink. He's also Canadian.

In this past Sunday's Times, Gladwell was profiled.

What I found interesting in the profile was the little fact that Gladwell's lectures go for around $40,000 US. So what does a $40,000 lecture sound like? I found these a couple of months ago, but now that they're worth about $39,200 more than what I have in my savings account, I thought that I'd share them. This is $80K of lectures.

Enjoy.
