Malcolm Gladwell shows why the story of success is far more surprising, and more fascinating, than we could ever imagineWhy are people successful? For centuries, humankind has grappled with this question, searching for the secret to accomplishing great things. In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an invigorating intellectual journey to show us what makes an extreme overachiever. He reveals that we pay far too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where successful people are from: their culture, their family, and their generation. Gladwell examines how the careers of Bill Gates and the performance of world-class football players are alike; what top fighter pilots and The Beatles have in common; why so many top lawyers are Jewish; why Asians are good at maths; and why it is correct to say that the mathematician who solved Fermat's Theorem is not a genius.Just as he did in Blink, Gladwell overturns many of our conventional notions and creates an entirely new model for seeing the world. Brilliant and entertaining, this is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

A non-fiction book that attempts to answer the age-old question - what factors contribute to extreme levels of success?

Gladwell investigates looking at a number of case-studies of people, groups, cultures and populations including Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, The Beatles, Jews, Asians, hockey players, pilots and KIPP.

An intriguing read.
