From the bestselling author of Blink and The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success overturns conventional wisdom about genius to show us what makes an ordinary person an extreme overachiever. Why do some people achieve so much more than others? Can they lie so far out of the ordinary? In this 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 far 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. 'Gladwell is not only a brilliant storyteller; he can see what those stories tell us, the lessons they contain' Guardian 'Malcolm Gladwell is a global phenomenon ... he has a genius for making everything he writes seem like an impossible adventure' Observer 'He is the best kind of writer - the kind who makes you feel like you're a genius, rather than he's a genius' The Times

Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. PREVIEW: Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success argues that success is not solely the result of merit and hard work. Rather, Gladwell says extremely successful people are successful because they were in the right place at the right time, or because they received crucial help. In order to understand success, it is important to look not at the characteristics of the individual, but at the social and cultural factors that enable success. Sports are often seen as a uniquely meritocratic endeavor. People believe that the most physically talented athletes are the most successful. However, this is not true. In fact, in Canada, children whose birthdays fall just before the cut off date for participation in youth leagues have a huge advantage. These children are the oldest ones in their leagues, and so are most developed, and are stronger and faster than their peers. In Canada, this means that they are chosen to move into more advanced teams and leagues, and so get more practice and training. As a result, almost all professional hockey players in Canada have birthdays clustered around the dates just before the youth league cut offs. The professional players all have great talent, and all work hard. However, what truly made them outliers was not work or skill, but the accident of their birthdays.

Malcolm Gladwell, the #1 bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and What the Dog Saw, offers his most provocative---and dazzling---book yet. Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David's victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn't have won. Or should he have? In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago. From there, David and Goliath examines Northern Ireland's Troubles, the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, murder and the high costs of revenge, and the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms---all to demonstrate how much of what is beautiful and important in the world arises from what looks like suffering and adversity. In the tradition of Gladwell's previous bestsellers---The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and What the Dog Saw---David and Goliath draws upon history, psychology, and powerful storytelling to reshape the way we think of the world around us.
