It’s nice to have Malcolm Gladwell back at his New Yorker job (he was off for quite a while writing Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking) . His latest article, Getting Over It, is about the psychology of dealing with trauma, and it is provacative and thought provoking. That’s what I like about Gladwell’s writing. Here’s a key paragraph:
It is a shift in perception so profound that the United States Congress could be presented with evidence of the unexpected strength and resilience of the human spirit and reject it without a single dissenting vote.
