Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

"In this provocative and inspiring book, Malcolm Gladwell examines everyone from business giants to scientific geniuses, sports stars to musicians, and reveals what they have in common. He looks behind the spectacular results, the myths and the legends to show what really explains exceptionally successful people." Gladwell argues that, when we try to understand success, we normally start with the wrong question. We ask 'what is this person like?' when we should really be asking 'where are they from?' The real secret of success turns out to be surprisingly simple, and it hinges on a few crucial twists in people's life stories - on the culture they grow up in and the way they spend their time.

    Other dudes/dudettes reminded me about some good stuff in the book that I wasn't really focusing on. Also, really interesting tangent on problems/pitfalls of the educational system.

    It should be Mokah. But the powers that be haven't made it all official-like yet...

    Right now we are hoping to meet at Mokah, but due to the ice/snow we haven't been able to reach anyone. Will keep everyone posted, but if we don't find a venue, we may have to postpone a week. I'll send out an official email on Monday! Thanks for your patience - stay warm!
