Revue de presse
"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...Outliers
represents a new kind of book for Gladwell...It is almost a manifesto."―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.-A."―Gregory Kirschling

Présentation de l'éditeur
There is a story that is usually told about extremely successful people, a story that focuses on intelligence and ambition. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around
them-at such things as their family, their birthplace, or even their birth date. And in revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential.
In The Tipping Point
Gladwell changed the way we understand the world. In Blink
he changed the way we think about thinking. In OUTLIERS he transforms the way we understand success.
