Outliers : the story of success /

Malcolm Gladwell examines some of the most successful people today, and tries to determine what exactly contributes to their success. He finds that, as a culture, we often analyze a person's success based on what that person is like. Rather, we should look at contributing factors such as culture, family, and the idiosyncratic differences in their upbringing to determine what makes a person successful. It is through such an examination that we can gain a better understanding of Outliers.

  • "There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. In Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around them -- at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. The story of success is more complex -- and a lot more interesting -- than it initially appears."
  • "Non-fiction author, award-winning journalist, and staff writer for The New Yorker, Malcolm Gladwell examines some of the most successful people of our time, from Bill Gates to the Beatles, discussing the contributing factors to their success."@en
