Outliers

The Story of Success

Malcolm Gladwell shows why the story of success is far more surprising, and more fascinating, than we could ever imagine

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.

Gladwell vermag es diese Weisheit auf ausführliche, nicht minder unterhaltsame Weise näher zu bringen und von verschiedenen Perspektiven zu beleuchten. So stellt er sehr überzeugend anhand wissenschaftlich valider Erkenntnisse dar, dass gesellschaftliche "(Bildungs-)Verlierer" mitnichten das Ergebnis irgendwelcher genetischer Dispositionen sind. Sie liegen vielmehr in fehlender Chancengleichheit und Voreingenommenheit derjenigen begründet, die diesen eine Fähigkeit zutrauen oder nicht. Auch legt Gladwell überzeugend dar, wie man verborgene Talente wie verborgene Schätze heben kann. Vor dem Hintergrund der gesellschaftlichen Diskussionen der letzten Jahre ist "Outliers" sehr relevant. Allein darum lohnt es sich, das Buch zu lesen.

In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell tells stories of successful people. In every chapter he tells a different story about an different way to be successful. The aspects he talks about are very interesting and the topics reach from hockey players to plane crashes and computer programming. The language of the book is not so difficult, so it is easy to read. I liked reading this book because the book is divided in different interesting stories. I also like the conclusion of the book. But there is also a negative point. I think that the different stories are too long. He needs too many pages to talk about one single topic in one of the small stories. I think he could tell them in a shorter way. In the end I think Outliers is a great book and it solves a big part of the mystery about how to be successful. R.G
