Malcolm Gladwell, whose most recent book David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants has generated interest from "The Daily Show" to the "Glenn Beck Program," recently revealed the one question he would ask God.
"I would ask him," Gladwell told TheBlaze TV with a smile and a shake of his head, "if He had any regrets."
The question was part of a larger question and answer video with the author revealing insights into what makes a story great, the stories he would like to tell, and how he would change the world.
"All great stories are about hope, and are about people defying expectations," he asserted. Those stories include David and Goliath and the founding of the United States.
"Would you ever un-invent something?" the author was asked.
"Yes," Gladwell responded. "Cellphones. I like the Internet, but I hate the idea that you carry the Internet around in your pocket. And I hate the idea that anybody can reach me at any time. I'm old enough to remember how awesome the world was when you could only be reached on a land line."
