Summary: In this stunning investigation of success, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a journey through the world of ''outliers''-the best, brightest, and most famous-asking the question: what makes high-achievers different? Gladwell argues that in order to solve this riddle we must focus on the contributing elements aroundthe successful-their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way, he explains what the Beatles and Bill Gates
share in common, the reason you've never heard of the smartest man in the world, why almost no star hockey players are born in the fall, and why Columbian and South Korean airplane pilots are more likely to crash. Brilliant and entertaining, Outliersis a landmark work that will transform the way we understand success.
