Product description

Review

"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today...Outliers is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward."―David Leonhardt, New York Times Book Review

"The explosively entertaining Outliers might be Gladwell's best and most useful work yet...There are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: Outliers is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book."―Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly

"No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for."
Atlanta Journal Constitution

3.0 out of 5 stars Story of success
By SAINATH REDDY on 24 November 2019
As success is overrated in contemporary world, this book caught my attention. After reading this book, I reminded of a line about success - "success has many fathers but failure is an orphan".
The author clearly explains the few reasons and their stories for a person to be successful and they are birth date, birth year, rules of the game, trends of the society, vigorous practice, family status, etc
It is a good book to read

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so Useful
By VAIBHAV on 23 October 2019
Delivered in good time. Content of book from first 150 pages is useful after that there is no any relationship between name of book and content. The book only try to justify success with "Luck" "Chance" instead of any fundamental advice.
