O que torna algumas pessoas capazes de atingir um sucesso tão extraordinário e peculiar a ponto de serem chamadas de "fora de série"?

Costumamos acreditar que trajetórias excepcionais, como a dos gênios que revolucionam o mundo dos negócios, das artes, das ciências e dos esportes, devem-se unicamente ao talento. Mas neste livro você verá que o universo das personalidades brilhantes esconde uma lógica muito mais fascinante e complexa do que aparenta.

Baseando-se na história de celebridades como Bill Gates, os Beatles e Mozart, Malcolm Gladwell mostra que ninguém "se faz sozinho". Todos os que se destacam por uma atuação fenomenal são, invariavelmente, pessoas que se beneficiaram de oportunidades incríveis, vantagens ocultas e heranças culturais. Tiveram a chance de aprender, trabalhar duro e interagir com o mundo de uma forma singular. Esses são os indivíduos fora de série – os outliers.

Para Gladwell, mais importante do que entender como são essas pessoas é saber qual é sua cultura, a época em que nasceram, quem são seus amigos, sua família e o local de origem de seus antepassados, pois tudo isso exerce um impacto fundamental no padrão de qualidade das realizações humanas. E ele menciona a história de sua própria família como exemplo disso.

Aqui você saberá também de que maneira os legados culturais explicam questões interessantes, como o espantoso domínio que os asiáticos têm da matemática e o fato de o número de acidentes aéreos ser significativamente mais alto nos países onde as pessoas se encontram a uma distância muito grande do poder.

For years I've heard mentions of this book. I can see why! One of the most often quoted parts of this book is the idea that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become highly proficient in anything - from a musical instrument to programming, to writing. Gladwell explains this not from a hypothetical standpoint, but by talking with experts and looking back on how they got there.

These experts share one other trait - they were fortunate to have the opportunity to devote 10,000 hours to their craft. I loved the stories in this one about how different experts (outliers) in their fields achieved greatness. For each, there is a bit of luck in having the chance, but also the immense effort needed. There is something to be said for being in the right place at the right time and having the right opportunity – then working your ass off capitalize on the chance. ( )

I didn't expect this book to change my perspective on success the way it did. I like how Gladwell tells a lot of different succes stories from all kinds of fields (hockey, education, aviation, IT, to name a few) and highlights their hidden similarities. Once you know the pattern, it's quite obvious. Insightful and entertaining! ( )

There is good reason Malcom Gladwell is one of the most successful nonfiction writers of our time. The book was wonderful - I loved it. 4.5 stars.

In outliers he challenges the common assumption of success that people “pull themselves up by their bootstraps.” In fact the stories of those most successful, people like Bill Gates or the Beatles are actually the convergence of several important factors, namely great opportunities, tons of hard work (to the sum of 10,000 hours), and luck. Environment, genetics, cultural heritage (or legacy) all impact us much more than we’d like to admit, or even realize. For instance, cultural factors, such as deference to authority and social hierarchy played a large role in airline Korean Air to have excessive accidents and deaths (in the past and now have been remedied). Honor and shame culture passed down resulted in excessive bloodshed throughout the Appalachian mountains that seem to even affect Southerners today. Hockey all-stars have a wild tendency to be born in January, February and March! Why? Because of birthdate cut offs as children... a phenomenon prevalent in many other areas of life. Also - have you ever wondered why Asians do so well at math? Well- you’ll have to read the book to find out. :) Fascinating (and convincing) theory. Related is the importance for your job to have autonomy, complexity and a direct relationship between effort and reward.

Gladwell also addresses the easiest pushback with not just one, but two chapters - what about geniuses?! He compares two unquestionable geniuses - Robert Oppenheimer and Chris Langan. The difference is that the former wound up overseeing the Manhattan project despite being wrongly qualified (and attempting to murder his advisor at one point) and the later failing to graduate college. It comes down to child upbringing and the massive differences between how socioeconomics affect child rearing practices.

Like I said above, overall I loved it. Gladwell combines research and intriguing stories like no other.

I’m sure people might complain that he cherry picks his stories. No doubt he does. This isn’t a peer reviewed journal article. He isn’t surveying all the possible studies on any given topic. We shouldn’t expect that.

Are all the examples bullet proof? Of course not. There are questions after each one and pushbacks. For one, in the chapter on genetic heritage (actually I don’t remember him using that phrase) - he makes the argument that Southerners today tend to toward quicker hostility when offended and this was seen even among metropolitan folks living in Michigan (but from the south). I had wanted so much more like, more studies and examples buttressing his argument ... but that would be a whole other book. Being from the south and questioning that tendency in myself before, I was astonished.

For what it is (popular psychology nonfiction), you can’t beat it. Highly recommended. Great food for thought, especially for parenting and how we understand success (and failure).

Why not 5 stars, you ask? In general I try to hold out a 5 star rating for books that I find truly great, specifically books I plan to read more than once or twice. Outliers does an exceptional job of telling stories to make the points, so well I can remember practically every story after hearing them just once. So it’s a one and done book, but I plan to read all his others soon. ( )

“Outliers” has much in common with Gladwell’s earlier work. It is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward. It also, unfortunately, avoids grappling in a few instances with research that casts doubt on those theories. This is a particular shame, because it would be a delight to watch someone of his intellect and clarity make sense of seemingly conflicting claims.
 
The world for Gladwell is a text that he reads as closely as he can in seeking to decode and interpret it. He is adept at identifying underlying trends from which he extrapolates to form hypotheses, presenting them as if they were general laws of social behaviour. But his work has little philosophical rigour. He's not an epistemologist; his interest is in what we think, rather than in the how and why of knowledge itself.

The book, which purports to explain the real reason some people — like Bill Gates and the Beatles — are successful, is peppy, brightly written and provocative in a buzzy sort of way. It is also glib, poorly reasoned and thoroughly unconvincing.
