The Pequod Review:

Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell's third non-fiction book, relies too heavily on pithy but oversimplified anecdotes like the 10,000 Hour Rule (which even the original study‚Äôs authors claim has been misrepresented). But his overall point that individual success is contingent on a wide range of cultural and social factors is undoubtedly correct. And he uncovers interesting studies and other anecdotes that go beyond the usual It Takes A Village-type arguments.
