I live in Los Angeles and spend many hours in my car; I love having audio books to listen to. Mr. Gladwell added a very personal dimension when he discussed the story of his family.

The concept that "self-made" successes are a myth tweaked me just enough to have to listen to this book. I planned to shoot down the concept and emerge with my pre-conceived notions intact, but I stand very much corrected.

I find myself drawing on stories from the book in management training sessions for my clients!

Malcolm Gladwell's style is engaging no matter what but in this book he tends to twist some stories to fit into the flow of ideas, he tends to mix between correlation and causation and over-dramatizes some stories.
Not my favorite Gladwell's book but still great!

Opportunities and 10,000 hours of work mean so much in your success.
