Description: xi, 365 pages : illustrations ; 17 cm
Contents: From back of book : "Outliers explains what the Beetles and bill Gates have in common, the extraordinary success of Asians at math, the hidden advantages of star athletes, why all top New York awyers have the same resume, and the reason you've never heard of the world's smartest man --
all in terms of generation, family, culture, and class. It matters what year you were born if you want to be a Silicon Valley billionaire, Gladwell argues and it matters where you were born if you want to be a successful pilot. The lives of outliers --
those people whose achievements fall outside normal experience --
follow a peculiar and unexpected logic, and making that logic plain Gladwell presents a fascination and provocative blueprint for making the most human potential."
Responsibility: Malcolm Gladwell.
