In this bestselling novel, Outliers: The Story of Success, author Malcolm Gladwell talks about 'outliers' - explained by him as individuals who cannot grasp the ordinary understanding of accomplishment. The book deals with extraordinary people, especially those who are rich, successful, smart and who dare to function where many fail to believe it is possible. He answers questions pertaining to what high-achievers do differently than others to reach their goals. They pay very little attention to their cultural background, family and the eccentric experiences of their upbringing which defines their zeal to excel. To explain this further he talks about what it takes to be a great soccer player or how Bill Gates made such extreme wealth or how The Beatles became one of the most successful rock bands of all times and many such examples. The book has two parts - Part One: 'Opportunity' and Part Two: 'Legacy'. There are six key points in the book, which according to Gladwell are significant factors contributing to one's success. These points teach the readers concepts like when opportunity presents itself, grab it or how timing is highly significant to achieving success and opportunity or how one should find meaning in their work and work hard. The book also stresses on upbringing and how it makes way for opportunities for success and how our core values are passed on from generation to generation, defining our behavior. In addition, there is the interesting concept of the 10,000 hour thumb-rule. The reissue edition of Outliers: The Story of Success was published on 1 August 2013 and is available in paperback.
