What an interesting read, overloaded with tons of fabulous connections and hypotheses about how and why the successful seem to go so far so fast.
I don't know what I could say that hasn't already been said by the other reviewers, but at least now I know, at least partially, why I am not already rich and famous!
Very insightful and thought provoking. Never have looked at successful people this way before. A lot of good explanations on why those that are successful are where they are today.
A really interesting take on successful people written simply, yet intelligently and read with an easy to listen to cadence by the author. Will definitely look into other audiobooks by this author.
Top of the list read. Don't wait. Read it now. Outliers shows the subtleties of success simply and brilliantly. Haven't you downloaded it yet? Start your 10,000 hours already and become the next outlier!
Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book. So appreciative to hear a voice of humility amid all the boasting arrogance of success. Thank you for setting the record straight.
This book is a Must Read for anyone who loves to think and know stuff. It is a brave book because it looks behind what our society at large wants us to believe and speaks the truth but with kindness and hope for a better future.
I have always been a fan of Malcolm Gladwell's books but this one pushed me this one level higher.
In addition, this book has helped me understand why I am who I am and also what I am and why I can do what I can do. It is a book to shift the large and the small and I truly hope that it will have that effect out there!
If you are curious about life and people, read this book! You will not regret it!!!
I also like that he himself read this book and did a great job at it!
This book was recommended by a friend. I enjoyed the in depth look at how and why some people are more or less successful than others. Great food for thought. Loved the information on Asian culture and math. Very interesting!
