OUTLIERS – Malcolm Gladwell


Outlier – ­ a person or thing differing from all other members of a particular group or set. Outliers is a fascinating book by Malcolm Gladwell which inspires the reader to the core. In this book, Gladwell analyses success and opportunity. He answers the questions of how people achieve so much and how can they differ from other people. He looks at everyone from athletes to software programmers, from gems lost in the dust to Asian farmers. He reveals that our background and upbringing matter a lot more than how we think they do, who we are, what we do and where we are from matters a lot more than intelligence and that correct guidance is tool in your belt. He states that no one, even a genius never makes it alone and how luck and opportunity, even your birthdate makes you an outlier.
