Not sure if I am in a 100% agreement with the author's point of view but the book has been a fantastic read. Malcolm never fails to hold my attention!
Success is not based in the individual alone in fact the individual is only a result of what shaped him/her and highly driven also by luck and timing.
Love how Malcolm Gladwell sheds light on the fact that opportunity shapes success; and that putting yourself in the position to have more opportunity, in combination with mastering the skills that are involved with whatever practice seem to be the 2 requirements for "good luck" to truly make a difference in a persons life. There are no outliers, only people who in combination with drive and ideas, find the right place and the right time.
I've always struggled with the notion that talent was the key. Not true. great reading.
Gladwell does not disappoint. This is an eye opener wonderfully articulated. It's fascinating to learn about some of the assumptions we have about how to instill greatness in future generations and how we need to break those notions.
Loved it! Thought provoking. Make me want to rethink how I teach my kids. Our actions are important and everyone has the ability to be successful it's not just for those that have a high IQ.
awesome book! this is a must read for those few who are serious about success and what is truly needed. become an outlier!
