Genius

On the front of Saturday’s Guardian there was an announcement for Malcolm Gladwell’s new book as the ‘most anticipated book of the year’. Gladwell’s book is titled ‘Outliers’, about geniuses, apparently. I don’t know what makes a genius in the mould that interests the people who buy Malcolm Gladwell books, but whatever it is I bet it doesn’t involve reading Malcolm Gladwell books. Anyway my joke was that if Gladwell’s book was indeed the most anticipated of the year, it was down to the fact of a group of outliers engaged in massive anticipation, while the rest of us longed for the latest John Francome and Paolo Coelho.
