Malcolm Gladwell is an American author.


In The Book Job Malcolm was seen selling his book Cocktail Party Make-You-Thinks at the Springfield Book Fair.

Later in The D'oh-cial Network when the Blue-haired lawyer asked Lisa Simpson if she could give a reason why the city should not force her to shut down her site, she answered that she had four digits of friends and one friend in common with Malcolm Gladwell. The blue-haired lawyer then told her that he friends everybody. That answer from him made Lisa decide to shut down the site.
