    "Fasinating Discussion"

    This is a free flowing discussion of a number of different topics that I found very interesting about different perspectives on topics such as writing styles, authors, human behavior, the corporate world, what makes people successful, etc.

    "Wonderful Exchange"

    I felt this interview could not have gone better. I learned more about Malcolm Gladwell and felt I knew him better as a writer after I listened to their exchange. I want to read the Tipping Point again and will be certain to pick up or listen to Blink. Great interview on both sides, such a great conversation.

    "Interesting"

    It's always interesting to listen to niche people converse or be interviewed. Malcolm Gladwell has written some interesting books. That's why I downloaded this free conversation. I found both these guys deeply enmeshed in what they do by the nature of their conversation. There are a few tips if you are an inspiring writer too.

    "Borders on Meaningless"

    While good at what they otherwise accomplish as writers, this dialogue serves to degrade each of their accomplishments. Gladwell is an undocumented social observer and Finder writes improbable stories about a contemporary white knight. Why in the name of all meaningful things would anyone care whatever it was this conversation was about?
    Utter waste of time.

    "Stimulating Conversation Between Two Great Authors"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Very stimulating conversation that, in usual Malcolm Gladwell fashion, reveals insights to everyday occurances that the average person would never uncover him/herself.

    "How Malcolm Gladwell Thinks"

    I'd read anything about how Malcolm Gladwell processes stuff. In this interview, he tells us how he himself chooses books---I took it to be great advice.

    "A complete waste of time"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Finder and Malcolm Gladwell again?

    No way


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

    There is no material to be narrated


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    This is an audio for 2 people that adore themselves and complement each other, giving their naive shallow opinions for more than an hour . Zero outcome . Zero intellectuality

    "Finder solicits validation from Gladwell"

    (This review written by a 36 year old female) Gladwell carries so much more credibility than Finder. Finder continues to seek Gladwell's agreement with any theory or conclusion that Finder has. I assume that Finder looks up to Gladwell, that's pretty apparent from the conversation. I was OK with the conversation until Finder got to the part where he elaborated on why women are not in sales. He went too far when justify reasons or excuses as to why men are keeping women out of the work force. It started to sound subjective instead of objective which is what prompted me to write this review. I adore ALL of Gladwell's books and have not yet read anything by Finder... not sure if I will.

    "Boring....dammit!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It sounded so interesting when I downloaded it.


    What could Joseph Finder and Malcolm Gladwell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    not sure. Maybe I just wasn't ready to be a fly on the wall for a convers between them.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    There was a narrator?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Conversation with Joseph Finder and Malcolm Gladwell?

    Didn't listen past a half hour or so. No help from me. Sorry.


    Any additional comments?

    Who was Malcom speaking with?

    "Very engaging and interesting conversation."

    I recommend listening to this after you read Killer Instinct. They talk about various things: corporate guys, sales people, reading facial expressions, and other. They refer to characters in Finder’s book Killer Instinct. I love the way Malcolm Gladwell thinks and writes. He is just as good in this conversation as he always is.

    Genre: nonfiction.
