    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.

    "Smart Book"
    Overall

    Well read. Very thought provoking. There are alot of lists in this book - which would be easier to skim in a "real" book - a bit tedious to hear them read outloud. But it includes lots of great stories and characters.

    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    The readers do not read the names or authors of the stories. This is very weird. It is hard for me to enjoy the stories without first hearing the title and author of the story.

    Story
    (14776)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    "Funny and Smart"
    Overall

    We love 30 Rock and Love this book. Entertaining with stuff to think about.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Listen to this Book with Your Teen"
    Overall

    My teen daughter and I are listening to this together. It is a great starting point for conversations about really important topics. Great storytelling. Wonderful Characters.
