Reunited: Gladwell & Simmons

I have a friend, whose opinion I generally trust, who swears by Bill Simmons. (OK, said friend is a Knicks and Yankees fan, but that’s not his fault, he was born that way.) The only time I’ve found Simmons worth reading was during his 2006 exchange with Malcolm Gladwell. Happily, the two are back for a second round. Until Gladwell finally writes that sports book (I’d even accept, say, his co-authoring Peyton Manning’s autobiography), we can read his his exchanges with Simmons on Larry Holmes, Nick Faldo and, er, Jennifer Aniston.  (For sports-inspired critiques of Gladwell’s May 11 How David Beats Goliath piece, check out Chad Orzel, G.D, or Alan Jacobs.)
