Outliers: The Story of Success

Outliers: The Story of Success - Malcolm Gladwell Another good book by Gladwell, with a series of anecdotes and stories about people who have become extraordinarily successful in their own field.He considers well know people like Bill Gates & Steve Jobs and less well know individuals. All of these people happen to be in the right place at the right time, and with the right set of skills. He also considers people who have have the same potential to reach these amazing heights, but due to circumstances and predominately class barriers have not achieved this.I like the writing style of Gladwell; he has the ability to write complex ideas with sparking clarity.
