Outliers: The Story of Success
Author
Malcolm Gladwell
ISBN
9780316017930
In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, 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.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Malcolm GladwellPublisher: Back Bay BooksPublished: 06/07/2011ISBN: 9780316017930Pages: 309Weight: 0.66lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.40w x 1.20dReview Citations: New York Times Book Review 07/24/2011 pg. 24People Weekly 03/18/2013 pg. 53Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 164990 / Outliers: The Story of SuccessReading Level: 7.8 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 13
