Malcolm Gladwell was an outstanding middle-distance runner, wow.

Malcolm Gladwell the author these books listed below was a runner? According to Wikileaks he won the 1500 meter title at the 1978 Ontario High School championships in Kingston, Ontario, in a duel with eventual Canadian Open record holder David Reid (the guy on the left). Brilliant.

I (effectively) read the first three books and they are all examples of great popular social science writing. I especially recommend the Outliers for readers of self-help books, a category i despis.
