Why do some people succeed far more than others?

In the The Tipping Point Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. In Blink he revolutionized the way we understand the world within. Outliers will transform the way we understand success.

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of ''outliers'' the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

Worth reading

The main point of the book is not to explain away success stories. But rather it is to learn from these stories, and use this information to help everyone be more productive and successful. Many of the stories in this book are supported with statistics.
Overall, the book is significant, easy to read, and extremely thought provoking. I highly recommend it.
