."..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.-A."--Entertainment Weekly "Gregory Kirschling " "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..."Outliers" represents a new kind of book for Gladwell...It is almost a manifesto."--New York Times Book Review "David Leonhardt "Reseña del editor:
A brilliant new book from the bestselling author of The Tipping Point and Blink
Why are people successful? For centuries, humankind has grappled with this question, searching for the secret to accomplishing great things. In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an invigorating intellectual journey to show us what makes an extreme overachiever.
He reveals that we pay far too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where successful people are from: their culture, their family, and their generation. Gladwell examines how the careers of Bill Gates and the performance of world-class football players are alike; what top fighter pilots and The Beatles have in common; why so many top lawyers are Jewish; why Asians are good at maths; and why it is correct to say that the mathematician who solved Fermat's Theorem is not a genius.
Just as he did in Blink, Gladwell overturns many of our conventional notions and creates an entirely new model for seeing the world. Brilliant and entertaining, this is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.
