"Waiting On" Wednesday! 3

Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

Product Description from

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.

Brilliant and entertaining, OUTLIERS is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

Released on November 18th 2008.

I really liked Malcolm Gladwell's books, The Tipping Point and Blink (especially The Tipping Point) so when I found out he had a new book coming out I totally got excited. His books are so thought provoking, I just love the things he explores.

What book can't you wait for to be released?
