Outliers: The Story of Success
Jan 30, 2009  - 
MG2What if the Beatles had never gone to Hamburg in 1960? Would they have become a sensation? What if Bill Gates had been born five years later? Would he have revolutionalized the world? Excellence, we often think, comes from practice. But Malcolm Gladwell, staff writer for The New Yorker and bestselling author of The Tipping Point and Blink, took the John Adams Institute podium to make a very different case. In Outliers: The Story of Success he shows why people often waste their talent, and how culture, family, time and place are essential ingredients to success.
