There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time lookingaroundthem-at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential.

InThe Tipping PointGladwell changed the way we understand the world. InBlinkhe changed the way we think about thinking. In OUTLIERS he transforms the way we understand success.

Editorial Reviews

"No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for."-Atlanta Journal Constitution
