Good. In this provocative and inspiring book, Malcolm Gladwell examines everyone from business giants to scientific geniuses, sports stars to musicians, and reveals what they have in common. He looks behind the spectacular results, the myths and the legends to show what really explains exceptionally succe ssful people. Gladwell argues that, when we try to understand success, we n ormally start with the wrong question. We ask "what is this person like? " w hen we should really be asking "where are they from? " The real secret of su ccess turns out to be surprisingly simple, and it hinges on a few crucial t wists in people's life stories-on the culture they grow up in and the way they spend their time. What does Bill Gates have in common with the Beatle s? How does your IQ relate to your salary? What can a linguist tell us abou t airline safety? How does the way your child speaks to an adult affect the ir success in life? What do rice paddies have to do with maths results? And how can you predict a maths star without even making them take a test? Mal colm Gladwell has the answers. This book really will change the way you thi nk about your life. And it will challenge you to make the most of your own potential.
