This was my first introduction to audio books and now I am spoiled! This is not only an interesting and compelling book but the narration was excellent -- it reads almost like a mystery in a way, even though it's not -- you are always wanting to find out what's around the corner.
What a fascinating way to analyze such a controversial subject as ¨success and riches¨ and why some achieve it, while others don't. Much better than a dozen self-help books put together. A smart view on how everyone is entitled to achieve and understand their own success, if one can only understand where he stands and what is available to oneself.
Personal success has a new definition. I enjoyed reading about the striking facts and circumstances that could shape someone's life and add a new meaning to success.
Very well narrated by the author.
I was enthralled from the start. This is the 3rd book of Gladwell's that I've heard and probably my favorite. It gave me a greater sense of how success is really achieved and what I might do to enhance my chances of success and that of my children.
I think it was very inspiring and insightful.
Very goood. Gladwell has a way of not only writing in an interesting way, but also reading it in an audio. This book is very easy to listen to, and it is very insightful. I'll probably never look at success quite the same way again. I'm glad I listened to this!
This, Gladwell's third book, was the first I experienced... my response, I immediately bought the first two (The Tipping Point and Blink) and will buy his latest very soon. This is well written, easy to understand, interesting, engaging, and useful. I loved it and find myself telling people about it alot.

A definite paradigm-changer, Outliers is an excellently read, and well-written study on just what makes success.
