Outliers : Malcom Gladwell
December 25, 2009 Leave a comment
Ever since i read Malcom’s book “Tipping Point” I was interested in reading all of his work. Malcom has a style of writing that keeps the reader wanting for more.
In the book Outliers, Malcom turns his attention on what makes some people successful while others are not. Contrary to the popular belief that all successful people have made is because of hard work and hard work alone, Malcom disagrees. The book argues in length with example of baseball players, Beatles, Bill Gates, Paul Allen and several others, that to be successful needs more than hard work. A theory mentioned in the book is the 10000 hours rule. Everyone successful in any field it may be has put in at least 10000 hours ( that is 10 years of work).
