The Verdict

I may be an "outlier" in saying this but I would not recommend Outliers. Going in to reading this book, all I heard about was how good it was and how interesting it was. Quite frankly, "Outliers" didn't live up to the hype. I found "Outliers" to be very repetetive in the way it was written. I feel that the book could be 60 pages shorter if Gladwell didn't repeat himself so often. It did, however, have its' bright spots. In some areas, complex ideas were explained in a way that was easy to read and understand. Unfortunately, I found parts like this to be few and far between.
