Audible Editor Reviews

Adam Gopnik and Malcolm Gladwell often appear in public together, and it is easy to hear why. They have an amiable and intellectual rapport as they discuss a broad range of subjects, always agreeing and disagreeing respectfully. In this 2010 conversation at the 92nd Street Y, the two widely-read writers discuss the differences between the Canadian and American healthcare systems, professional football, longform writing, the use of the word "like", and civilization as we know it. The title of their discussion is taken from the Samuel Johnson poem "The Vanity of Human Wishes". The recording skips the introduction and jumps right into the meat of their discussion.
