Cover of Outliers: The Story of Success

This week I will share my thoughts on a great book written by Malcolm Gladwell titled Outliers: The Story of Success.  Malcolm Gladwell studied what made the most successful people in the world different.  What he found and what he explains in various short stories is that most people look at what successful people are like instead of looking at where they are from.  Throughout the book you will learn from Gladwell’s stories what made The Beatles so successful, how Jewish males became the best attorneys, why Asians are good and math, and many more secrets to success.  This is a great book and very easy to read!  Enjoy!

Please let me know if you have any requests for plays, drills, defenses, etc…

  3. This book is little more than pop psychology. How can everything take everyone 10000 hours to master. For example, boxing and MMA. A person should master boxing a lot faster than MMA considering boxing is just one dimension of MMA. I would also guess that a sport like hockey would take longer to master than a simpler sport such as baseball.
