Carol Dweck werkt het hoe en waarom van deze "growth mindset" uit, Malcolm Gladwell nuanceert tegelijk de invloed van deze individuele inspanningen door "toeval" in het verhaal te brengen: hoe omstandigheden en toevallige kansen van invloed zijn op uiteindelijk succes.… (més)

3.5. Fascinating study but I liked David and Goliath better. ( )
  OutOfTheBestBooks | Sep 24, 2021 |
I like the central messages of the book, that you don't get anywhere by yourself, that genius is a myth, that we all need luck.

I hope no one takes this to mean that the only way you can be successful is by being born in the right year to the right family in the right place with the right culture. He was talking about people who were off the charts. You don't need the full 10,000 hours to be amazingly good at something. You don't need to be one of the top 100 in your field to have a successful life, you don't need all the stars and constellations to be aligned perfectly on your birthday. That's just how certain legends are made.

Well he obviously cherry picks examples. That doesn't take from it.
Another thing was it kind of reminded me of a few essays I wrote in college: at the beginning I had no idea what the essay was going to be about, but I started writing some really interesting things I'd found. Then as I went to long I realized there was some kind of connection between them and I went back and put in a few lines to bring it all together.
It kind of feels like he had some leftover notes from Tipping Point and he just found an angle from which to present them. ( )

Fascinating. Would recommend, especially to those with a mind tuned for scientific inquiry. ( )

Thought provoking in many ways. Looks at things in new ways, with attempt to explain certain trends, stereotypes, and differences. Among the examples are how national culture impacts airline pilot interaction, math scores of students, etc. ( )

“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.
afegit per mikeg2 | editaThe Guardian, Jason Cowley (Nov 23, 2008)
 
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.
