Malcolm Gladwell, Eclectic Detective –
I have to admit to loving a few minutes with Gladwell every now and again. I hope I do that from a position of enjoying his writing rather than hanging my hat on his musings, but who knows. 

Pinker doesn’t half make some good points here, but there’s a little corner of me thinking that the shit sandwich technique (nice bread – pooh – nice bread) belies a little psychological greening. Envious that Gladwell hooked on to the social psychology when looking back it appears obvious that the psychologists missed a trick?
