In the audiobook version of talking to Strangers, you'll hear the voices of people he interviewed - scientists, criminologists, military psychologists.

He was also producing for the ear.

Hachette Audio - He shouldn't have won. Or should he have?  in david and goliath, or attend a mediocre school, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks.

David's victory was improbable and miraculous. From there, the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, David and Goliath examines Northern Ireland's Troubles, murder and the high costs of revenge, and the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms - all to demonstrate how much of what is beautiful and important in the world arises from what looks like suffering and adversity.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

Hachette Audio - Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, in the blink of an eye, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Never again will you think about thinking the same way. The landmark book that has revolutionized the way we understand leadership and decision making - from number-one best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell.

Now, in blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police.

Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing", filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology and displaying all of the brilliance that made The Tipping Point a classic, Blink changes the way you understand every decision you make.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking - Why are some people brilliant decision makers, and in the bedroom? and why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?   In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, in the classroom, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, in the kitchen, in the office, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance.

Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

Penguin Audio - Pink "so much crucial and revelatory information about performance, success, and education. Susan cain, best-selling author of Quiet "As David Epstein shows us, cultivating range prepares us for the wickedly unanticipated. A well-supported and smoothly written case on behalf of breadth and late starts. Wall street journal plenty of experts argue that anyone who wants to develop a skill, or lead their field should start early, play an instrument, focus intensely, and rack up as many hours of deliberate practice as possible.

Generalists often find their path late, and they juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. As experts silo themselves further while computers master more of the skills once reserved for highly focused humans, people who think broadly and embrace diverse experiences and perspectives will increasingly thrive.

Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World - But a closer look at research on the world's top performers, from professional athletes to Nobel laureates, shows that early specialization is the exception, not the rule. David epstein examined the world's most successful athletes, forecasters, artists, inventors, musicians, and scientists. They're also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can't see.

Provocative, rigorous, and engrossing, Range makes a compelling case for actively cultivating inefficiency. If you dabble or delay, you'll never catch up to the people who got a head start. The most impactful inventors cross domains rather than deepening their knowledge in a single area.

Stillness Is the Key

Penguin Audio - Stillness is the key offers a simple but inspiring antidote to the stress of 24/7 news and social media. Ryan holiday calls it stillness - to be steady while the world spins around you. The stillness that we all seek is the path to meaning, contentment, and excellence in a world that needs more of it than ever.

 . Instant number one new york times best seller and wall street journal best seller In The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, politics, best-selling author Ryan Holiday made ancient wisdom wildly popular with a new generation of leaders in sports, and technology. In this audiobook, he outlines a path for achieving this ancient, but urgently necessary way of living.

More than ever, people are overwhelmed. They face obstacles and egos and competition. It enables them to conquer their tempers. To avoid distraction and discover great insights. To achieve happiness and do the right thing. Drawing on a wide range of history's greatest thinkers, from Confucius to Seneca, but the doorway to self-mastery, discipline, John Stuart Mill to Nietzsche, he argues that stillness is not mere inactivity, Marcus Aurelius to Thich Nhat Hanh, and focus.

Stillness Is the Key - Holiday also examines figures who exemplified the power of stillness: baseball player sadaharu oh, whose study of Zen made him the greatest home run hitter of all time; Winston Churchill, who in balancing his busy public life with time spent laying bricks and painting at his Chartwell estate managed to save the world from annihilation in the process; Fred Rogers, who taught generations of children to see what was invisible to the eye; Anne Frank, whose journaling and love of nature guided her through unimaginable adversity.

In his new book, stillness is the key, Holiday draws on timeless Stoic and Buddhist philosophy to show why slowing down is the secret weapon for those charging ahead.
