Audiobook Summary:

In this stunning new novel, Malcolm Gladwellrequires us on an intellectual trip through the realm of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most renowned as well as the most productive. He asks the inquiry: what makes high-achievers distinct? His answer is that we pay a lot of attention to what productive folks are like, and inadequate attention to where they're from: that is, their tradition, their household, their generation, as well as the idiosyncratic encounters of their breeding. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it will take to be a great soccer player, why Asians are excellent at mathematics, and what produced the Beatles the greatest rock band.

Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a watershed work that will simultaneously please and illuminate.
