This book was recommended to me by Amir. It is a very good read. Far more interesting than Thomas Friedman’s ‘The World is Flat’ (Friedman’s book was so boring I didnt even finish it!)
Outliers means “an extreme deviation from the mean”. The author examines the factors that contribute to high levels of success. It talks a lot about how even though success are achieved through hard work (lots of hard work), a big part is also gained through luck and opportunity. He argues that genius is not the only or even the most important thing when determining a person’s success.
If you’re looking for the next book to read, I would highly recommend this book.
