There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. 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. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential. In "The Tipping Point" Gladwell changed the way we understand the world. In "Blink" he changed the way we think about thinking. In OUTLIERS he transforms the way we understand success.

Industry Reviews

"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today..."Outliers" is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward."-- New York Times Book Review "David Leonhardt " "The explosively entertaining "Outliers" might be Gladwell's best and most useful work yet...There are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: "Outliers "is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book."-- Entertainment Weekly "Gregory Kirschling " "No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for."-- Atlanta Journal Constitution
