Malcolm Gladwell

Author Malcolm Gladwell was in the red chair this week to talk about his new book, David and Goliath; Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants — although Macklemore's tribute song and Gladwell's youthful misadventures came up as well.

George also asked Gladwell about his ability to occasionally provoke people. 

"You do not want to be cornered by me at a cocktail party," Gladwell said. "It's just the worst. It's a really bad idea.

"I grew up in small-town Ontario. I now live in New York. I have a massive chip on my shoulder, the best kind of chip. A chip is a terrible thing to waste."
