A fascinating book which delves into why some people achieve such high levels of success compared to others. Gladwell puts forward the case that it is not so much about how hard you try, but more the environment to which you were born as to whether you ultimatley succeed in life.

As you’d expect there have been many critics on some of Gladwell’s theories as it tends to blast out of the water any idea that we all have equal opportunity, nevertheless he makes some very valid points based on complex and compelling data.

Thoroughly enjoyable book worthy of anyone’s time.

Wikipedia’s synopsis:

Gladwell examines the factors that contribute to high levels of success. To support his thesis, he examines why the majority of Canadian ice hockey players are born in the first few months of the calendar year, how Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates achieved his extreme wealth, how the Beatles became one of the most successful musical acts in human history, how Joseph Flom built Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom into one of the most successful law firms in the world, how cultural differences play a large part in perceived intelligence and rational decision making, and how two people with exceptional intelligence, Christopher Langan and J. Robert Oppenheimer, end up with such vastly different fortunes.
