    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"
    "Interesting...."
    Overall

    This was an interesting book to listen to. I found it shocking how Bill Joy, Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs were all born months apart. However, I did like Malcolm Gladwell's book Blink a lot better. I still would recommend this book to other readers because it does have interesting discoveries. Like the birthday example.

    In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

    Kenneth says: "Great history, poor analysis. TERRIBLE recording."
    "Very Interesting"
    Overall

    I just finished this book and I have to saw that after listening to this, I have a new view of Facebook. I am actually a bigger fan of Facebook because of it. I especially liked the Q & A with David Kirkpatrick and Randi Zuckenberg. I would've been nice if Mark Zuckenberg also had a discussion with David Kirkpatrick as well.
