Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
Outliers: The Story of Success

Ellen the librarian, January 10, 2010

Gladwell's highly readable narrative opened a door for me to look at events in our lives in an entirely different way. Engaging stories illustrate ideas about fate, luck and coincidence versus hard work, and the role culture plays in communication. The book reminds me, as a person who advocates for youth, that every encounter between an adult and a young person can be life-changing.
