Well written, well read, though provoking ideas. Very interested take on underlying factors that lead to success. Wish my teachers would have read and implemented some of Gladwell's ideas, though I am not sure what I would have though, at the time, of longer school hours and less vacation.
Every point he makes is well validated. Would recommend to any teenager or aspiring entrepreneur, as this book is incredibly encouraging and proves that many of us have an extraordinary chance to succeed, or at least our children do if we raise, teach, enroll & encourage them in the right way, time and place.
This well researched piece goes well beyond the "tribal wisdom" or fables about the lucky individual who miraculously rises above their circumstances.... also well written to portray the salient points. The best of his works.
A unique perspective of the origins, roots and causes of exceptional people... The perceptive power of Malcolm Gladwell is an outlier in and of itself!
This book is a must read it listen by anyone who wants to get a healthy perspective of what it takes to be successful in your chosen profession or just life itself.
Malcolm Gladwell Texas on a journey deep into the roots of successful people to show us that we are more like them then we may have ever imagined. he also provides evidence to suggest that communities cultural legacies are as important as individual contributions in the story of a successful person.
It feels like a story. Even though it's 20 stories it never feels like data research. I'm astonished at how many stories he tells. I often find myself trying to retell particular stories from his book because they seem to relate quickly to the rest of my life and the lives of others around me.
