About the book: 

Why do some people achieve so much more than others? Can they lie so far out of the ordinary?

In his provocative and inspiring book, Malcolm Gladwell looks at everyone from rock stars to professional athletes, software billionaires to scientific geniuses, to show that the story of success is far more surprising, and more fascinating, than we could ever have imagined. He reveals that it's as much about where we're from and what we do, as who we are - and that no one, not even a genius, ever makes it alone.

Outliers  will change the way you think about your own life story, and about what makes us all unique. Like Blink,  this is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.
