June meetup - Outliers (Gladwell)

  • Jun 26, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • Barnes and Noble

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different?

His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.

Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

    My first time meeting the group. I'm really excited. I love this Barnes and Nobles location too. Met Eoin Colfer and Khaled Hosseini at their book signings. Neat experiences!
