Outliers: The Story of Success can be encapsulated as follows-Outliers are those who have been given opportunities and who have had the strength and presence of mind to seize them. They were born in the right time at the right place."
I cant agree more with the author. Outliers:The Story of Sucess is full of illustrations to support his premise and he indeed succeeded in proving it.
However, I felt Malcolm Gladwell just lengthened the book with paltry narration which could have been easily avoided (especially the part "The ethnic theory of plane crash"). I kept on yawning throughout the chapter.
The Epilogue was touchy and summarized the book in a wonderful and memorable way".
Made a good read and highly recommended.
