The invocation of Hofstede's theory of social power distribution (PDI) was quite refreshing, and how one's socio-cultural background has so much influence on his/her success on the world stage. Gladwell writes so clear and concise that taking a break from the book was nearly impossible!
The author makes some excellent, clear, and factual arguments about the simple truth of SUCCESS - that personal and societal achievment are best cultivated under a home, school, or work environment that promotes autonomy, mastry, and purpose. Loved the software upgrade analogies! The larger points seem very much aligned to A.Maslow's Self-Actualization Theory. This book is a must-read for any manager, teacher, coach, or parent!
