Description

The secret of Malcolm Gladwell's success...

After books like Blink, Outliers and the Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell solidified himself into the consciousness of American culture.

In this course we dive deeper into 3 core patterns of the way that Gladwell writes:

  • How Gladwell writes and Introduction
  • How Gladwell describes a person
  • How Gladwell uses stats/facts

While these areas of Gladwell's writing seem simple at first, deeper digging shows that Gladwell has a consistent approach - a system - that he uses no matter what topic he is writing about.

In this course we take 3 of Gladwell's most popular articles from his days as a New Yorker writer and dissect what Gladwell's writing patterns are and how you can use them in your own writing.

Not only that, once you start to recognize the pattern, you start to get insight into the inner workings of Gladwell's mind and you start to understand how he thinks and forms ideas - it's a pretty cool place to be.

Whether you're a writer looking to beef up your repetoire so that you can craft more engaging stories or a reader who wants to understand the inner workings of the Gladwellian mind - then this course is for you.

So join me as we dive deeper into the mind of master communicator, thought leader and author Malcolm Gladwell!
