About the book

image4.2/5.0

From the bestselling author of The Bomber Mafia, learn what sets high achievers apart—from Bill Gates to the Beatles—in this seminal work from "a singular talent" (New York Times Book Review). In this stunning book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"—the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band. Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

Great book. Interesting perspectives on how success is created. Recommended for especially entrepreneurs. Though Malcom Gladwell is being a bit too inductive in proving his arguments throughout the book.

Unexpected factors that explain why some people succeed, such as upbringing, timing and 10,000 hours of deliberate practice.

Succes = tilfældighed! Sjove insights og cases om umiddelbart “succesfulde” menneskers vej til succes (disclaimer; det er ofte fucking random og “heldige” omstændigheder)
