    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "very insightful and provocative"
    Overall

    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!

    From Daniel H. Pink, the author of the groundbreaking best seller A Whole New Mind, comes his next big idea book: a paradigm-changing examination of what truly motivates us and how to harness that knowledge to find greater satisfaction in our lives and our work.

    Michael says: "Not as good as A Whole New Mind"
    "The New Economy!"
    Overall

    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!
