Malcolm Gladwell, the New Yorker writer and author of “The Tipping Point,” will discuss his latest book, “Outliers,” in a talk at Town Hall Seattle on Saturday Jan. 17. Gladwell’s book looks at why some people are so accomplished, while so many more never reach their potential. He asserts that environmental factors such as the role of culture, work ethic, and accidental opportunity are as important as intellect and talent in shaping the lives of extraordinary men and women.
