Malcolm Gladwell, author of books including, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference and Outliers: The Story of Success, will speak at Penn.
Gladwell's books and articles often deal with the unexpected implications of research in the social sciences and make frequent and extended use of academic work, particularly in the areas of sociology and psychology.
