Product Description
'A fizzingly entertaining and enlighting book' Daily Mail 'Gladwell is not only a brilliant storyteller; he can see what those stories tell us, the lessons they contain' Guardian Why do some people achieve so much more than others? Can they lie so far out of the ordinary? In his provocative and inspiring new book, Malcolm Gladwell looks at everyone from rock stars to professional athletes, software billionaires to scientific geniuses, to show that the story of success is far more surprising, than we could ever have imagined. He reveals that it's as much about where we're from and what we do, as who we are - and that no one, not even a genius, ever makes it alone. Outliers will change the way you think about your own life story, and about what makes us all unique. 'Malcolm Gladwell is a global phenomenon . . . he has a genius for making everything he writes seem like an impossible adventure' Observer 'Exceptionally well-written . . . I wanted to cheer or clap' Evening Standard 'Gladwell deploys a wealth of fascinating data and information' Financial Times 'He is the best kind of writer - the kind who makes you feel like you're a genius, rather than that he's a genius' The Times
