Best selling author Malcolm Gladwell recently released his new book titled Outliers. I can't wait to read this...basically Gladwell says that people like Bill Gates wouldn't be as successful as they are without being in the right place at the right time. Gates attended a high school with it's own computer, which was connected to another computer in his hometown of Seattle. This gave Gates the opportunity to excel.

Gladwell also establishes the 10,000 hour rule. Basically if you want to shine at something, you must devoter 10,000 hours to whatever it may be i.e. soccer, writing, basketball, poetry, motorcycle riding, nursing, etc. Seems like Outliers will get your mind working.

And, Gladwell says Barak Obama is an outlier.
