“Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell book review


I don’t know if you ever read the book, “Think like freak” or “Freakonomics” by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner, but they were fascinating books.  The books looked at issues from new angles that dug deep into issues and that their may be deeper reasons for why things happen than people normally accept.

Such is the same kind of feeling I got after reading, “Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell.  Just an excellent book that I just had a very hard time putting down.

Maybe there are some deeper reasons for why some plane crashes have occurred than previously thought.

Why is it that an unusual amount of star hockey players are born in the  beginning of the year/

Maybe there is a reason why so many Asians have such impressive work habits .

Maybe there is more to Bill Gates’ success than he was just a really smart guy

and there are many more fascinating stories talked about.

Read this book and enjoy it.

I think you’ll begin to question things a bit more—that’s a good thing.
