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 "around" the 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, "Outliers" is a landmark work that will transform the way we understand success.

Reviews

"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today...Outliers is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward." -- New York Times Book Review "The explosively entertaining Outliers might be Gladwell's best and most useful work yet...There are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: Outliers is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book." -- Entertainment Weekly "No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for." -- Atlanta Journal Constitution
