Book Review - Outliers

Outliers Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars

The material in this book has been quoted so often that I wasn't sure that I actually hadn't read it before. It took a couple of chapters before I was sure I had not.

Very interesting discussion on what leads to success. Is it IQ, natural ability, nature, nurture...? Great stories for the examples - both success and failures - illustrate the answer.

Turns out, it's luck and effort. Luck comes in to play to provide opportunity for the effort. It takes 10,000 hours to become an expert and a person has to be lucky enough to have the resources to put in those hours.
