“Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.”

Out of stock

Have you ever wondered why some people prevail and live remarkably successful lives while others fail to reach their full potential?

For centuries, humankind has grappled with this question, searching for the secret to accomplishing great things.

Malcolm Gladwell explores the different factors that decide the difference between successful and unsuccessful people. We learn what rock stars, geniuses and computer programmers have in common.

He explains that success is not just a matter of IQ, but a combination of hard work and opportunity. In Outliers, Gladwell hooks the reader by first providing an anecdote and explaining the common misconceptions that people have about that situation and then completely turns our understanding of how they got to be successful on its head.

This book includes stories of why January first is the ideal birthday for a hockey player, how the work ethic determined by Jewish immigrants making clothes lead to them becoming successful lawyers, how Asians working in rice paddies has developed a culture which excels at math, and how performing for 10,000 hours in Hamburg decided the Beatles’ rise to fame.

While this book was enjoyable for this trivia alone, Gladwell manages to change our perception of success entirely, because timing, circumstance, and even luck are major factors that decide a person’s success. Sometimes the disadvantaged actually have all the advantages in the world just because they happened to be born in the right place at the right time.

We have to examine all the factors surrounding a successful individual which all had to come together in order for him or her to be an outlier.

Like Blink, this is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.
