Outlier by Malcolm Gladwell

Outlier

“You know how you hear someone say of Bill Gates or some rock star or some other outlier—”they’re really smart,” or “they’re really ambitious?’ Well, I know lots of people who are really smart and really ambitious, and they aren’t worth 60 billion dollars. It struck me that our understanding of success was really crude—and there was an opportunity to dig down and come up with a better set of explanations.” Malcolm Gladwell

A new book by Malcolm Gladwell. In this book Gladwell pretty much sums up what actually seems to be the determinant of success by studying deeper into the culture and communities issues surrounding a successful person or groups for that matter. For fans of his previous books The Tipping Point and Blink, this is a surely a must read book. Don’t miss the interesting Q&A about Outlier too
