Outliers - The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

We all know the myths, that people make it big because they're so awesome, that they are in some way- a genius.

Outliers dispels those myths with a vengeance, in a way that's not ony informative but highly entertaining. Now you can pick and mix and just choose to read what interests you, murder planecrashes, success -- but you almost certainly wont because Outliers draws you in to find out more about yourself and how you work, how we all learn and why, and the ways in which society completely totally and uterly throws away so much raw potential.

The theories within are as liberating as they are constricting, as sensible as they are irreverant, as Malcolm Gladwell shines a spotlight on how success really works.
