This book, subtitled The Story of Success, was written by Malcolm Gladwell in 2008. In Outliers, Gladwell examines the factors that contribute to high levels of success. He studies the way that cultural differences, intelligence and rational decision making all decide the success of an individual. When and where the gifted people in Outliers grew up and their social standings while growing up effected their future as well. Gladwell looks at many different success stories from, The Beatles to Bill Gates and from the Canadian All-Star hockey teams to people like Chris Langan and J. Robert Oppenheimer.
It is not only intelligence that allowed these individuals to strive its timing and much more. Outliers is a great book that shows anyone who takes the right advantages can do great things in life.
