Just finished reading Outliers by Gladwell. While I was a little scared to read it at, thinking it was yet another one of those here is how to successful books. My stereotype could not have been farther from reality.
Gladwell offers a compelling and connected list of case studies that focus on both successful outliers and failed, reformed outliers. While hardwork, passion, and education are keys to success, having access to a key opportunity to use your skills is even bigger. Gladwell discusses how each opportunity came about… this is a book you won’t put down!
Gladwell gives us all a lot to think about and I highly recommend this book. While it won’t change your life philosophy, it is an intriguing new look at successful and failed outliers using solid research and data.
