Inhaltsangabe

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers" - the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.

Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

hochinteressant - und spannend geschrieben/vorgele

Gladwell beschreibt, wie besondere Menschen Besonderes leisten könnten. Es ist eben nicht nur Talent, sondern 10.000 Stunden Übung, die richtige Idee zum richtigen Zeitpunkt - geboren aus dem richtigen Background.Und selbst wenn man ihm nicht zustimmen möchte - dieses Hörbuch macht in seiner Lebendigkeit einfach Spaß!

Talent demystified

Entertaining book that provides an insight in the limits of talent and an advice to every parent and/or caretaketr not to look for the talent in each child, but to create the surroundings to foster the motivation of the kids and bring out the best in them. Also an insight in the fact that some are born more lucky than others, because the time was right and the prevailing environment made it possible for the result of their effort to shine brigther.

Sehr gut!

Sehr realistisch dargestellt mit vielen praktischen Beispielen und deshalb so gut. 10.000 Übungsstunden und zur richtigen Zeit am richtigen Ort. Bill Gates hatte z. B. ein ganz besonderen Umfeld. Es lässt sich vieles logisch erklären und nicht alles auf Begabung beschränken.

Es lässt einen nachdenken, welche Voraussetzungen im eigenen Umfeld dazu führen könnten die Spitze zu erreichen bzw. was war es, das gefehlt hat?

Well presented arguments

Interesting arguments to the story of success. The story of success is much more complex than we are often told.

All good points that lack depth

Gladwell correctly points out how people's success is formed by many variables, including many that we don't have any influence on. However, 2 things aren't cool: 1. He discredits anyone from his/her achievements. Any personal character trade, action or event in one's life may be ascribed to something one didn't have any influence on (upbringing, culture, what not). And actually it doesn't matter if that trade/action/event lead to success or failure. Gladwell discredits but at the same time takes away responsibility from people. 2. He makes some connections that he doesn't provide any proof of.

good but full of biases

the book shares important insights on mindset and statistics, but the author’s views are clearly full of biases.

This is awesome!

One of the best book I ever came across. It gives a different light upon the general understanding (common misunderstanding?!) of who an outlier is. The ideas, as crazy as it sounds the scientific evidences author sheds throughout the story says the truthfulness of the matter in question. Although it's a book written for the goal of learning who's an outlier and does it even matter, this is a great case study on successful people of history. The book is well arranged and the author's narration is as good as it can be.

Maybe overrated

The narrator was very good. The story of the book was superficial with simplified explanations. I expected more scientific evidence and explanation.

A book which we all should ready or listen to...

... as it teaches us, where real success is coming from. Partly fortune, partly effort, partly deserved, partly cultural and partly inherited: Malcom Gladwell shows in an entertaining fassion, that there are several misconceptions regarding the outliers success stories. He does this by telling interessting stories of many different domains and people, e.g. Bill Gates, The Beatles, and many more. To me, a motivational firework.

Enticing but could be shorter

Nothing really new but it opens up your mind on what it means to be privileged and what little and big advantages matter to succeed. The stories were a bit too long and felt like they were explaining the same thing
