Read this book. It will change your life. We have pretty silly and ignorant ideas of why people are successful and how people become successful. There is no such thing as talent. All there is and all there ever will be is earnest, concentrated practice. 10,000 hours and all your dreams can come true. Do yourself a favor and read this book as part of your New Year's resolve to live a more satisfying life.

As a kindergarten teacher I find this book fascinating. It explains and expands on ideas very clearly and is a good reminder that all students do not start on a level playing field. The author emphasizes the chance opportunities for practice that lead to success but it reminds me that as a teacher I can provide opportunities for children to acquire more practice to be successful in my classroom.

"Review" by , "In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today....Outliers is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward."
"Review" by , "The explosively entertaining Outliers might be Gladwell's best and most useful work yet....There are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: Outliers is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book."
"Review" by , "No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for."
"Synopsis" by , There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around them — at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential.

In The Tipping Point Gladwell changed the way we understand the world. In Blink he changed the way we think about thinking. In Outliers he transforms the way we understand success.
