Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
Outliers finds Malcolm Gladwell exploring and contemplating the success of outliers. Many people are intelligent, talented, and hard-working, but the outliers, those who have found success well beyond the average person, have other factors working in their favor. Some of these are attributed to chance or fate, being in the right place and the right time with the right talent. Bill Gates and other software billionaires were all born within a few years of each other and developed their software businesses just as the industry was ready to explode. Canadian hockey players who are born in the first months of the year are bigger and stronger than others born late in the year since each age class begins with the first of the year. Outliers has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Outliers is a clever, entertaining book that stimulates readers' minds and broadens their perspectives. It is, in its own way, genius."
