Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Its been some time since I last read a good book and apparently, not many of the good books I have read are related to finance or investment though I preach that I have strong interest in them. hmmm.....

The previous good book I read is "Ahead of the Curve: Two Years at Harvard Business School" by Philip Delves Broughton. It talks about a 2 years personal experience of an overage student in the MBA programme of HBS, rather negatively that is. And it even invited critics that talked about his motive for entering the programme (some jokers even accused him of entering HBS just to write this book! Imagine the time and effort needed.)

Now, my current read "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell is even more amazing! Just watch the interview below to find out more.

As a tease, the book answered question such as "Why are most Canadians in the top 2 teams in Candian youth league born between Jan and Mar?", "How much talent and IQ helps in Bill Joy and Bill Gates' path to richness?", "Why did Chris Langan, someone with IQ level of ~190 carry labour-intensive job such as bouncer, construction worker, cowboy etc?" etc etc.
