"Outliers" is a Great Book to Read

Why did Korean Airlines pilots crash more often than any other country? Why are Asian-Americans better at math than Americans and western Europeans? Why is your birth year important for how and in what field you succeed? Why do some geniuses thrive and others flounder? What did Bill Gates and the Beatles have in common? The answers to these and many other questions are tackled in this fascinating expose entitled "Outliers: The Story of Success" by Malcolm Gladwell, which studies what makes people succeed brilliantly or fail utterly. By the author of "Blink; The Power of Thinking Without Thinking" and "The Tipping Point; How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference" all three books will grant you surprising insights and open your eyes to see the world a different way.
