Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers: The Story of Success – A Thought-Provoking Beach Read
Outliers: The Story of Success written by Malcolm Gladwell
Adult nonfiction published by Little, Brown and Company
We’ve just returned from a camping trip and I am still feeling somewhat lazy. I have a number of projects that I ought to tackle but am not very motivated to knuckle down. While camping, I managed to read Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers: The Story of Success. It was a perfect pick – I found his ideas fascinating and thought-provoking. Gladwell’s comments regarding the selection of “star” hockey players at a young age touched a nerve – I am a hockey mom and my left winger was born in October (shudder!). A remarkably good “beach read” from my perspective. Now, back to work!
