Outliers: Secret To Success

I've heard nothing less than amazing things about the Outliers book written by Malcolm Gladwell. Although this book came out in Novemeber of 2008, I'm just now getting around to reading what the media and people have been raving about. Malcom really digs deep into some of the greatest success stories of all time, such as Robert Oppenheimer, Bill Gates and The Beatles to name a few.

Outliers tells a story about the context in which success takes place: family, culture, friendship, childhood, accidents of birth and history and geography. Gladwell writes, "It's not enough to ask what successful people are like. It is only by asking where they are from that we can unravel the logic behind who succeeds and who doesn't."

For any person burning with the desire to be successful in the real estate industry might find some inspiration from reading this book.
