Listened to Episode 03 The Big Man Can't Shoot by Malcolm GladwellMalcolm Gladwell from Revisionist History

The basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain had only one flaw: he couldn‚Äôt shoot free throws. In 1962, Chamberlain switched to making his foul shots underhanded‚ÄĒand fixed his only weakness.

But then he switched back.

‚ÄúThe Big Man Can‚Äôt Shoot‚ÄĚ is a meditation on the puzzle of why smart people do dumb things‚ÄĒwhy excellence is such a difficult and elusive goal, even for the best-intentioned.

I’m really addicted to this podcast now.

Good ideas and why they have difficulty spreading. Somewhat related to the ideas in Made to Stick.
