Whenever I start a book like the one John Shufeldt wrote, I have two things in the back of my head: 1) There's probably a lot of material in the book I have read elsewhere; and 2) If I can learn 3 new things that I didn't know before, then it's worth the read. Both came true here… much of the book covers things we've all probably read or heard at some point in our lives; This book is great because it reminds of the many things we need to be successful. To my second point, I came away with 5 things I had not considered before, and for that I give kudos to the author.

I loved this book! It had a wonderful blend of personal experiences and inspirational stories that really articulated the attributes needed for personal success. The stories were interesting and well researched and written. It was an easy to read book, but one that left you wanting to do more and be more. Shufeldt did a wonderful job of articulating the character traits in our lives that really matter. The book really can be a recipe for personal achievement.

"The most efficient way to live reasonably is every morning to make a plan of one's day and every night to examine the results obtained." - Alexis Carrel
This Is an example of one the numerous quotes used to uplift, encourage, engage readers in this book.

John Shufeldt's excellent book is practical and well researched. In an uplifting tone, the author breaks down what it takes to be an outlier. Among these characteristics include humility, kindness, and persistence.

It gives essential attritubutes of outliers and goes into detail by providing examples, giving personal quotes (the "in my words" section) and quotes by famous people ( the "in other's words" section).

For example in the chapter on efficiency, he discusses the outliers Jeff Bezos,Amazon's founder, and Frank Mars, founder of the Mars candy company. He then gives several suggestions to become more efficient: "preparation, anticipation, focus, flexibility, limitations, communications, and delegation."
The failure chapter I found most uplifting. He details the failures and subsequent successes of dr. Seuss and J. K. Rowling, among others.

Outliers know success isn't permanent and failure isn't final yet they persevere. This book is for anyone ready to take their career or any endeavor to the next level.

Thank you Net Galley for the copy of this book.

This book is an easy read, mostly because the personal testimonials and the real life stories are fascinating nuggets that you not only can relate to, but take you by surprise and keep you engaged. Additionally,I love the simple quotes and pearls of wisdom throughout the book that the author, John Shufeldt includes.. Many of them, I have written down to keep close at hand when I need a little boost or reminder for myself. "Food For Thought" and "In Other Words" at the end of each chapter are helpful summaries of life's most important examples and lessons to reflect on knowing the adversities and overcome struggles that led to the incredible successes of the person featured in that chapter. What a great foundation of hope to build upon!. If you have the "Outlier" book you have practical tools now to make your own "Outlier" success story and for that, I am truly grateful.

A first-hand account from a textbook example of an outlier: Ingredients of Outliers is a rich combination of inspirational stories and anecdotal examples of genuine outliers who rise to become leaders in their respective fields.

This very readable book peels back the layers to reveal what identical traits these individuals possess and how we can create our own specific recipe for success.

I found John Shufeldt's viewpoint on success refreshing. Dr. Shufeldt does not toot his own horn despite all that he has accomplished. This book is a must read for people that need inspiration to pursue their dreams.

Format: Paperback
The book has lot of insight and sprinkled with a very healthy dose of examples. I liked the themes of the book like ego, failure, persistence. Like all of those like " Failure is the greatest teacher of all. Failure is not failure to meet your goal. ..." I did not even know about the amazing feats of Cliff Young. The book is very entertaining read with lot of inspiring examples.

I was provided this book in exchange of a honest and fair review.
