Outliers The Story of Success
 from los angeles, ca,  Aug 1, 2011

Outliers can be enjoyed for its bits of trivia, like why most pro hockey players were born in January, how many hours of practice it takes to master a skill, why the descendents of Jewish immigrant garment workers became the most powerful lawyers in New York, how a pilots' culture impacts their crash record, how a centuries-old culture of rice farming helps Asian kids master math. But there's more to it than that. Throughout all of these examples--and in more that delve into the social benefits of lighter skin color, and the reasons for school achievement gaps--Gladwell invites conversations about the complex ways privilege manifests in our culture. He leaves us pondering the gifts of our own history, and how the world could benefit if more of our kids were granted the opportunities to fulfill their remarkable potential.

Very slow delivery!
 from Houston,  Oct 3, 2011

The book is in great condition and was package properly. The only problem I have with Overstock, and this is a BIG problem I believe, is that the delivery was really, really slow. Being an online store this is one of the major factors in this business. Since delivery was so slow, I would not buy from Overstock ever again.
