I’m sure that some will criticize this as an oversimplifying article about America’s most famous automotive engineering case, but Gladwell does have a nice way of organizing information and opening up corridors for thinking across disciplines.  Worth reading.

Malcolm Gladwell, “The Engineer’s Lament: Two Ways of Thinking about Automotive Safety,” The New Yorker (May 4, 2015) (http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/05/04/the-engineers-lament).
