A conversation of new ideas that can transform the way we understand a subject we often take for granted — Healthcare in America.

New Yorker staff writer and bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell believes David Goldhill’s new book is so important, he’s coming to southern California for one apperance only to make sure you hear about it.

Join us for an evening with the author of Blink, The Tipping Point, andOutliers in conversation with Goldhill discussing Catastrophic Care: How American Health Care Killed My Father and How We Can Fix It.

In 2007, David Goldhill’s father died from infections acquired in a hospital, one of more than two hundred thousand avoidable deaths per year caused by medical error. The bill was enormous—and Medicare paid it. These circumstances left Goldhill angry and determined to understand how world-class technology and personnel could coexist with such carelessness—and how a business that failed so miserably could be paid in full. Catastrophic Care is the eye-opening result–a visionary investigation that will change the way we think about health care.

If you think health care is interesting only to institutions and politicians, think again: Catastrophic Care is surprising, engaging, and brimming with insights born of questions nobody has thought to ask. Above all it is a book of new ideas that can transform the way we understand a subject we often take for granted.

David Goldhill is president and chief executive officer of GSN, which operates a U.S. cable television network seen in more than 75 million homes and is one of the world’s largest digital games companies. He is a member of the board of directors of The Leapfrog Group, an employer-sponsored organization dedicated to hospital safety and transparency. Goldhill graduated from Harvard University with a BA in history and holds an MA in history from New York University.

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of What the Dog Saw (2009), Outliers: The Story of Success (2008), Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking(2005), and The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference(2000), all New York Times bestsellers. Gladwell has been a staff writer withThe New Yorker magazine since 1996. In 2007, he received the American Sociological Association’s first Award for Excellence in the Reporting of Social Issues, and in 2005 he was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. Gladwell was born in England, grew up in rural Ontario, and now lives in New York City.
