Not run-of-the- mill

by readerman on Aug 15, 2013

If you think you know how others become successful, or you think you know how you yourself can become successful, read this book - you might be surprised.

A book all young people should read

by Randal H on Aug 25, 2012

This is not a hard to read book so I finished it in good order. I like the message of the author who is basically saying that most of us are smart enough to do just about anything and that practice and hours in the field make the difference between "expertise" and mediocrity. Also, the idea of children being born in the first three months of the year of having an advantage over their younger peers was interesting. Finally, I appreciated his chapter on his family which really showed how the New World really worked and how his family somehow overcame great odds to excel in the manner of which they did.


Interesting look at acheivers

Author gives interesting examples of what goes into the making of a successful life.


Well worth the time

by Nehe on Jan 20, 2011

I try to choose the books I read carefully, and Outliers was definitly worth my time. Gladwell writes in an intelligent, yet easy to understand style that gets the point across clearly. His explanation for why certain people excell so far above others is not only interesting and enlightening, but can give insight into your own life and background. This book helped me to understand better why I am the way I am, and what has contributed to the successes (and failures) of my past. A great read for anyone who wants to learn about human nature or the aspects involved in becoming great.


Were you born under the right sign?

by Peter1234 on Sep 2, 2010

If you want to play professional hockey you need to be born in the first quarter of the year. Mr Gladwell demonstrates that being in the right place at the right time with the right skills has more to do with success than anything else. While it is still possible to succeed without those three attributes, most of the success stories we see from Bill Gates to Gordie Howe have those characteristics. Fascinating view of the world!
