Synopsis

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different?His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

Malcolm often uses unexpected results of research in the social sciences and academic work. He interned with the National Journalism Center in Washington, DC in 1982. He then graduated with a Bachelor's degree in history from the University of Toronto in 1984.

Gladwell has been included in the prestigious Time 100 Most Influentual People list.
