An outlier is the sort of high achiever who has become the best in their field. Bill Gates and the Beatles are just two examples best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell uses in this colourful and intriguing book. Outliers is a look behind the curtains at the ultra-successful and how they reach their heights. So, is an outlier born or created? While we tend to believe that genius is born, Gladwell turns the tables on this with a series of observations that make it clear that there is a more complicated story behind every outlier. Told with wit and charm, Outliers is an eye-opening look at genius and how it is formed. It also shows how things need to change if we want everyone to experience the same opportunities to become great. Follow Gladwell through history as he makes it clear that genius and success have predictors that you may never have expected.
