Description

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.

Gladwell presents quite complex facts about geniuses and what makes them great in a very lucid manner.This book is exactly what title says a 'story'. It's not a 'how to' book' and it gives a lot of credit to the environment that played a crucial role in success of people like bill gates to name a few who are mentioned in the book.If you are looking for answers about greatness and how few ordained achieve it,this will not provide those.It will however tell you how things fell together for most rich and accomplished people and worked in their favor.
