Very interesting post.

Irving, Great entry. I had read the Gladwell piece and loved it, and I most recently finished Walter Isaacson's "Steve Jobs" -- a fascinating and unvarnished account of Jobs's life and work. I highly recommend it.

And your last comment about success and failure is spot on. I've always been fascinated with the subject of failure and how successful people were those who benefited from their (often many) failures. I had contemplated writing a book on the subject but got distracted by other projects. But I'm always reminded of the batting statistics of great baseball players -- the great players fail 6 to 7 times at bat and the legendary ones are those that never, never give up.
