Editorial Reviews


Praise for Outliers:

"In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today...
Outliers is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward."―David Leonhardt, New York Times Book Review

"The explosively entertaining
Outliers might be Gladwell's best and most useful work yet...There are both brilliant yarns and life lessons here: Outliers is riveting science, self-help, and entertainment, all in one book."―Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly

"No other book I read this year combines such a distinctive prose style with truly thought-provoking content. Gladwell writes with a high degree of dazzle but at the same time remains as clear and direct as even Strunk or White could hope for."―
Atlanta Journal Constitution

"[An] important new book...Gladwell intelligently captures a larger tendency of thought-the growing appreciation of the power of cultural patterns, social contagions, memes...Gladwell's social determinism is a useful corrective to the Homo economicus view of human nature."―
David Brooks, New York Times

"Thought-provoking, entertaining, and irresistibly debatable...[
Outliers] is another winner from this agile social observer."―Heller McAlpin, Christian Science Monitor

Outliers is required reading for boardroom and watercooler crowds alike."―Men's Health

Outliers, Gladwell (The Tipping Point) once again proves masterful in a genre he essentially pioneered-the book that illuminates secret patterns behind everyday phenomena."―Publishers Weekly

Praise for
The Tipping Point

"A fascinating book that makes you see the world in a different way."―

"Gladwell's theories could be used to run businesses more effectively, to turn products into runaway bestsellers, and perhaps most important, to alter human behavior."―
New York Times

Praise for

"A real pleasure...Brims with surprising insights about our world and ourselves."―

"Intoxicating".Gladwell is an engaging writer and a first-rate tour guide.?―
Thane Rosenbaum, Los Angeles Times

"BLINK moves quickly through a series of delightful stories?.Always dazzling us with fascinating information and phenomena."―
David Brooks, New York Times Book Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Reconsidering what advantages look like.
By Victoria Andre King on June 23, 2022
This was my third Gladwell title and now I am determined to rustle up the other three as well. What I enjoy most about his books is how he explores aspects of human behavior that for most of us pass under the radar, but which have concerted impact upon how our societies function. His observations read like conversations rather than lectures, and the examples he chooses from everyday life make understanding the point effortless for the reader. It is relatable, even if what he describes is not something you have personally experienced. My takeaway from David and Goliath is to stop being intimidated by superficial odds, stop taking perceived advantages and disadvantages at face value, and reconsider everything! Gladwell's books should be taught in middle school, a straightforward approach to critical thinking without the pomposity.
