Words on Wednesday: "Outliers: the story of success"

In this book, you will journey through the world of “outliers.” You will learn the secrets of software billionaires, why people of certain cultures are better at academic performance, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band. You will learn that culture, family and other factors, rather than just having a high IQ, contribute immensely in making a person successful. Join us to discuss this inspiring book by Malcolm Gladwell.
Copies of the book will be available at the Main Library a month before the discussion.
