Outliers: The Story of Success

 

Malcolm Gladwell, a sociologist, is the author of such popular works as The Tipping Point, and Blink,. He follows them up with perhaps his most comprehensive and interesting work yet, Outliers: The Story of Success. His book outlines why there really is no self-made success stories, and explains how the cultural influences that surround person with purpose is more responsible for success of a person. He demonstrates empirically that the best Canadian born hockey players are almost always born in the months of January, February, and March.  It is a great read! I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is certainly a book that is well-suited for someone who really wants their intellect challenged about the societal expectations we may take for granted.
