Outliers: The Story of Success , by Malcolm Gladwell, is a book about how people got where they are. It’s about dispelling the american capitalist myth of the self made man and the boy who can grow up to be president.
The underlying theme of Outliers is there’s a number of people with enough IQ or skills to get to the top of industry, professional sports or any other field but only a limited number get the necessary breaks and have the fenomenal number of opportunities needed to get to the top.
If you’re serious about raising a child Outliers is a definite must read (as opposed to tons of psyco-mumbo-jumbo out there).
