    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"
    "Incredibly insightful"
    Overall

    Whether you can put what M.G. says into practice for your own gain or not, this book really makes you think differently. Its tough to argue with the inferences made from the facts he lays out.

    The writing is colourful, skillful and nicely paced. It's a joy to listen to, particularly on those long country drives.

    The absolute worst case scenario is that you will have something very interesting to talk about at your next cocktail party.
