What makes high achievers different?
In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of “outliers.” These are the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful, the movers and the shakers. He asks the question: what makes high achievers different?
Malcolm is one of Time’s 100 Most Influential people.
Adventures and experiences
He concludes that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like and too little attention to their history. That is their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.
The High Achievers and the talented
Along the way, Malcolm explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player. And why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.
Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.
