Outliers

The Story of Success

(11)
Why are people successful? For centuries, humankind has grappled with this question. In this stunning new book, Gladwell takes us on an invigorating intellectual journey to show us what makes an 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; and why it is correct to say that the mathematician who solved Fermat's Theorem is not a genius.
Portrait
Malcolm Gladwell is a staff writer for The New Yorker magazine, and author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What The Dog Saw and David and Goliath.

So kann man wohl Malclom Gladwells informatives Buch über Überflieger subsummieren. 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

It gives you an explanation why some People succeed, reach all their goals, while others never reach their potential. Malcolm Gladwell looks at everyone. It is equal if you’re an athlete, a Software producer or a superstar. He shows that the story of success is far more surprising than you could ever imagine. He tells us that it is much about where we are from and what we do, as who we are. And that all of us even the biggest genius need help, you can not succeed if you make it all alone. After I read the fist chapter I was a little bit confused. This chapter is about, that Ice-hockey Players in Canada just get a chance to succeed if they were born in the first half of the year. But then I thought if you really try hard you could also get there. But then you have to make a big effort and you are on your own. Because of this if you want to be successful you have to train at least 10 000 hours. So it is described in another chapter.
