Author: Malcolm Gladwell
A delightful read where Malcom relates statistical evidences and studies to prove that some people are successful not only because of their personal traits, intelligence or ambition, but, also, because they had an opportunity to be exposed to special privileges and opportunities to which others weren’t fortunate enough to experience.
He provides various scenarios and examples of:
1) how 10,000 hours of practice is required to make a person expert at something
2) how Bill Gates, Bill Joy had exposure to the first personal computers at their school/college which made them pro at computing.
3) how age cut off limit provides demarcation of star hockey, basketball players born before fall
4) why Korea had major plane crashes and they flipped things around
5) why Asians are ace at math
And many more.
