Outliers is a great listen! But it's gotten some mixed reviews and I've spoken to one colleague--who READ it--and said he didn't like it that much. All of which leads to a Gladwellian hypothesis: one's enjoyment of Outliers says as much about context(listening vs. reading) as it does about the book itself. Gladwell's message--that success is more about nurture than nature; along with importance of being in the right place at the right time--these are not new conclusions. Instead, it's the fascinating stories underlying his conclusions along with the command that Gladwell, as narrator, has of his material, that makes this such a great experience.
