Success is the result of what sociologists like to call "accumulative advantage."

Achievement is talent plus preparation. The problem with this view is that the closer psychologists look at the careers of the gifted, the smaller the role innate talent seems to play and the bigger the role preparation seems to play.

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Malcolm Gladwell is a staff writer for The New Yorker. He was formerly a business and science reporter at the Washington Post. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today...Outliers is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward."--David Leonhardt, New York Times Book Review

"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

"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."--Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly

"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." Gregory Kirschling, "Entertainment Weekly"" --This text refers to the library edition.
