  • Quite fascinating!

    This is the first book I've read that gives a fairly plausible explanation for success. The studies are very interesting, particularly those that went unpublished because of their unorthodox conclusions. While I believe that background and being in the right place at the right time makes a difference, I am also a firm believer in the strength of individual will: a person is not necessarily/fatally bound by his circumstances. This book may appear to say that unseen forces and/or unacknowledged circumstances inevitably lead to success or otherwise. However, in my view the author's observations are that certain circumstances are given far less attention than they deserve when assessing a person's success - far more emphasis is placed on luck, destiny or "being born with it" and far less attention is paid to the plain old hard work that really made it happen!

  • Awesome way of looking at the world

    One of the most charismatic way to explain greatness. This book gives a glimpse on what make some people just "better" but with a twist: it hints you how to do it yourself.

  • A fantastic read

    The book is well researched and the conclusions drawn present a valid explanation of outliers in real life. Candid, well articulated and very engaging.
