Malcolm Gladwell is one of my favorite modern authors. This essay, first published in The New Yorker magazine in 1999, is so interesting. The New Yorker has quite a lot of it's archives available on-line, so there's no reason to subscribe, which is good, considering their recent poor judgement regarding cover art. I'd hate to give an organization so stupid any money, it might encourage them. Note that I'm also only linking to the article I'm featuring, not the magazine in general.
Anyway, read this interesting essay about amazing physical skills.
