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

Brilliant and entertaining, Outliersis a landmark work that will transform the way we understand success.
