Mr. Gladwell has been a staff writer with The New Yorker since 1996. His 1999 profile of American inventor and pitchman Ron Popeil won a National Magazine Award. From 1987 to 1996, he was a reporter with the Washington Post, where he covered business and science, and was NYC bureau chief. Mr. Gladwell is the author of The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking and Outliers: The Story of Success, all of which were New York Times bestsellers. His most recent book, What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures, is a selection of his essays published in The New Yorker.
