Announcing a new Meetup for Books that Make You Go Hmmm...!
What: June Book Discussion: Outliers by Malcom Gladwell
When: Monday, June 14,[masked]:00 PM
New York, NY 10001Thank you Yanna for the book suggestion!
Now that he's gotten us talking about the viral life of ideas and the power of gut reactions, Malcolm Gladwell poses
a more provocative question in Outliers: why do some people succeed, living remarkably productive and impactful lives, while so many more never reach their potential? Challenging our cherished belief of the "self-made man," he makes the democratic assertion that superstars don't arise out of nowhere, propelled by genius and talent: "they are invariably the beneficiaries of hidden advantages and extraordinary opportunities and cultural legacies that allow them to learn and work hard and make sense of the world in ways others cannot." Examining the lives of outliers from Mozart to Bill Gates, he builds a convincing case for how successful people rise on a tide of advantages, "some deserved, some not, some earned, some just plain lucky."http://www.gladwell.com/outliers/index.html
