Outliers (book review)

OutliersOutliers by Malcolm Gladwell is, hands-down, one of the most fascinating books I’ve read in quite awhile.

I’ve read all sorts of books about success: what it looks like, how one attains it, and even how the arguments of nature versus nurture bring about success. But Malcolm Gladwell tells stories about successful and unsuccessful people—supported by loads of “hard data”—that turn all of those fine theories about success on their head.

As it turns out, success is not about the right family, or a strong work ethic, or an outstanding education, or a lucky break, or being born in the right culture or in the right decade. It is all of these things. Success people are successful because of innumerable factors, but the stories that Gladwell uncovers that reveal these fact are astounding.

I recommend you add Outliers to your reading list as soon as you can.
