Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

In addition to being a great writer and researcher, Malcolm Gladwell exceeded all my expectations as a narrator. I believe he is someone who goes the extra mile to ensure that the concepts in his work are articulated in a thought-provoking way. And excellent and worthy investment!
Refreshing ideas which challenge the status quo image of success. The back story for each unique person discussed was very interesting and entertaining.
This book would be a great book for every person to read- it tackles the issue of entitlement and idealization- giving agency to every person and providing those who have both benefited and suffered from a system of entitlement an encouragement to continue to work hard and persevere.
Wil be recommending to everyone in my family. Well-written and well presented.
Makes so much sense. I wish everyone would read or listen to this book.
I was thinking this book was going to be all about how the "outliers" or successful people in our society do it, another one of those books to provide us with the how to. Instead, he presents basic data and statistics of why and how each get there. And what I love too is how it all supports the theme of the outliers don't get there all on their own. They take advantage of the opportunities.
The narration was good as well. More of a conversational style instead of having someone read to you, he talks to you.
I recommend this book and look forward to listen to others he has available.
