You will know you've really made it when your bestseller inspires a parody...as Malcolm Gladwell's Blink has with the new "Blank: The Power of Not Actually Thinking At All." The author is Noah Tall, noted in the Amazon Editorial Review as being
...a longtime subscriber to The New Yorker and other magazines that people leave on their coffee tables when they want to look smart. He has also been a member of NAMES, the dyslexic branch of MENSA, since 1598. He is the author of the highly acclaimed national bestseller The Tippling Point, which has yet to be published.
Whether you love Gladwell's writing or hate it, his influence on pop culture is undeniable. I sure hope he has a thick skin.
