Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

July 22, 2021

The power of genius is considered the key to success in life and business. That genius, it is thought, cannot be earned; it is divinely gifted. Inexplicable.

However, one writer follows exceptional cases and arrives at one conclusion: The power of genius is nothing compared to The Power of Community.

The latter made the Beatles THE BEATLES. When you have the ability, this writer concludes, what gets you to the top is not genius. It's work. What's more, the exact amount of work necessary to reach outlier status is quantifiable: 10,000 hours = or 3 hrs per day / 20hrs per week for ten years.

The writer: Malcolm Gladwell

The book: Outliers
