Delightful Conversation

Where does Adam Gopnik and Malcolm Gladwell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Delightful conversation between two friends. I appreciate some of these shorter Audible offerings besides full-length books. Gladwell and Gopnik are both great thinkers, have a wonderful sense of humor, and articulate ideas well. They also ask questions, the sign of great thinkers.

Engaging conversation between two smart guys.

This delightfully interesting conversation was mildly provocative, more than occasionally amusing, and very sharp. Two thoughtul and smart guys, both articulate, clearly enjoying one another. Pleasure to listen in.

I can't identify who Daniel Sullivan and Henry Timms might be, but if they are actors portraying Adam Gopnick and Malcolm Gladwell, they do great imitations.

This is BALONEY.

I think Malcolm Gladwell is an excellent author and I read all his books but he is a dupe on this audiobook. Adam Gopnik is ridiculous and pompous and this audiobook is worthless. Let both of them go back to Canada and be quiet. But, Malcolm, keep writing.
