The Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator

created at: 04/11/2011

Malcom Gladwell, The New Yorker staff writer, has written a wildly successful series of books (The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw) that deal with, more-or-less, a super fascinating premise: explaining why seemingly unexplainable things happen.

   Some enterprising internetters named Cory and Brett decided to play with Mr. Gladwell's theme, offering a generator of Gladwell-esque book titles that touch on themes as diverse as cat's tongues and derivatives, circumcision, and, as pictured above, how Clarissa explained it all. 

It'd be awesome if you could input your own terms, and it'd find a photo for you, but I guess that's called Photoshop, friends. Very fun, very clever.

Dear Chris,

There is a site, http://romancenovelyourself.com/ where you can make "your" book!, and where you can add your photo (or your loved one's), and concoct your own title, blurbs and such.  It is very user friendly.  And it's great fun!

this could be an easy meme generator akin to the despair demotivation poster generator or the ...for dummies cover generator.
