Malcolm Gladwell – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gladwell’s first work, The Tipping Point, discusses the potentially massive implications of small-scale social events, while his second book, Blink, explains how the human subconscious interprets events or cues and how past experiences allow people to make informed decisions very rapidly. Outliers examines how a person’s environment, in conjunction with personal drive and motivation, affects his or her possibility and opportunity for success. Gladwell stated,

“The hope with Tipping Point was it would help the reader understand that real change was possible. With Blink, I wanted to get people to take the enormous power of their intuition seriously. My wish with Outliers is that it makes us understand how much of a group project success is. When outliers become outliers it is not just because of their own efforts. It’s because of the contributions of lots of different people and lots of different circumstances.” — Malcolm Gladwell[15]
