3.0 out of 5 stars Outlier - Overhyped, Illogical and Tedious Nonsense
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 6 December 2015
There seems to be a pattern with Gladwell's writing and a brilliant one too for sales or becoming the next 'bestseller' - Find an idea that already exists, coin an intriguing title, write and explain the idea with case studies. Though, the case studies seem well written, when it comes to proving the point, the author has cherry-picked stories that perfectly fit the situation.

This is the second book from Malcolm Gladwell that I've read after [[ASIN:0349113467 The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference]]. After reading Outliers, I am not entirely sure if the three hours of my time were well spent because while I was reading, parts of it seemed very entertaining while in the back of my mind, I was wondering how true can these case studies be. Then I started my research on topics that were covered through the case studies. After spending more time on my research, I can easily say there are 'issues' to say the least. In fact I can point out and criticize the lack of research done with each case study, but I will just take one for now.

' The author talks about how 10,000 hours of practice in any field makes a person world class expert in that field by using Bill Gates and The Beatles personal stories implying success. The author writes in a way to prove this 10,000 hour rule proves with every successful individual on the planet. But on the contrary, academic journal published in July 2014 by Princeton University suggests otherwise saying becoming an expert takes more than practice - ' We conclude that deliberate practice is important, but not as important as has been argued.' Google '10,000 hours rule Princeton' for the article.

The biggest let down is the story lies upon one's luck, apparently being born at the right time and the right place happens to be a major criteria for success according to the author.
The conclusion is with the history of Gladwell's own Jamaican family and how its circumstances shaped him. How is that even relevant? Are we to consider Gladwell to be an outlier too?

It is absolutely discouraging for the less-privileged or the unlucky ones looking for inspiration through this book as Gladwell's core belief system defines luck (born at the right time, in the right place, with the right ethnic background, and the right social class) to the primary cause for success. Insightful to a small extent but it's illogical and very tedious nonsense.

Are there no un-lucky, less privileged people out there who happened to become world wide success stories? Answer that question yourself, but remember - where there is a will, there is a way.
