Malcolm Gladwell’s Reading Habits

  • SHARES

By Chris O'Shea Comment

The Atlantic Wire sometimes interviews people and gets them to discuss their “media diet.” Today’s edition is with Malcolm Gladwell, the intellectual, writer, and social media enthusiast. Unfortunately, it seems that Gladwell doesn’t really read much, and when he does, he’s about a day behind:

I try to keep that time free for writing and thinking and don’t read any media at all until lunchtime, when I treat myself to¬†The New York Times–the paper edition. At this point, I realize, I am almost a full 24 hours behind the news cycle. Is this is a problem?

Gladwell’s next book: Slow: How Being The Last to Know Things Helps Sell Books with Long Titles.
