Malcolm Gladwell On Genius: Obsession, Isolation, And Insight

Malcolm Gladwell, one of our most favorite authors at FS, has a brilliant mind and ability to explain ideas, often complex ones, with ease and extraordinary lucidness. He is the man behind mainstream popularity of rather obscure ideas like tipping point, 10,000 hours rule of genius and more. Malcolm Gladwell has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1996. In this wonderful video talk Gladwell explains what makes someone genius and the importance of stubbornness and collaboration in problem-solving.
