Outliers: The Story of Success Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
From the best-selling author of The Bomber Mafia, learn what sets high achievers apart - from Bill Gates to the Beatles - in this seminal work from "a singular talent" (New York Times Book Review).
In this stunning audiobook, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers" - the best and the brightest, the most famous, and the most successful. He asks the question: What makes high-achievers different?
His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: That is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.
Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

It's an inspiration book that impacts us all and is a must to read or listen to (via audible). It's fairly light and can easily be completed within a few days. His writing style is soft and made for anyone to be able to enjoy. I highly recommend this book
Drawing from baseball hockey and statistics Malcolm lays down the foundation for anyone thristy or hungry to become competent. Repetition of a skill, number of hours used to develop and improve them, the focus and consistency in applying yourself to improving a particular skill set ultimately transforms into mastery.
It's a well written with thoughts organized and backed by evidence.
