Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

One of my favorite writers, Malcolm Gladwell, has written a new book called Outliers. It's reviewed in the NY Times Sunday Book Review this week. The review by David Leonhardt is excellent, here's the short version:
Malcolm Gladwell says success depends not only on brains and drive, but on where we come from — and what we do about it.
I especially like that last political bit, how we as a society have neglected to give young people the infrastructure to become successful. The book sounds great. I can't wait to read it.
