This is Malcom Gladwell.
I'm more than half way through this book.... I read Blink first while we were on a family vacation in Florida it was super interesting in the beginning and then towards the end I couldn't stay awake (even if I was reading it the middle of the day) So, I was a bit skeptical to read Outliers but after my husband read a few chapters and shared some insight about it, I was a little intrigued. I decided to give it a shot and I got through the first five chapters on our way to Seattle.
It's pretty good (so far)
It makes you think...success for someone is often based on the premise of being in the right place at the right time.
From Gladwell..."My wish with Outliers is that it makes us understand how much of a group project success is. When outliers become outliers it is not just because of their own efforts. It's because of the contributions of lots of different people and lots of different circumstances— and that means that we, as a society, have more control about who succeeds—and how many of us succeed—than we think."
