Outliers: The Story of Success is by Malcolm Gladwell. A study of the best and brightest and whether or not there are factors other than talent that make them what they are. Gladwell argues that we need to look at the world around them, to truly understand what makes them successful and how we can make others successful. A must read, thoughtfully written, and well-researched book.
