    DescriptionIn this stunning new 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.

    Review quote
    ."..The explosively entertaining "Outliers" might be [Gladwell's] best and most useful work yet...there are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: "Outliers "is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book.-A." Gregory Kirschling, "Entertainment Weekly""
