Just knocked back Malcom Gladwell's brain candy Outliers like it was a shot of Jameson, minus the nasty hangover. Outliers is an easy and engaging read, I finished it in less than a day, so it's worth a go if you have a moment to spare. Hell, why not? Everyone seems to be reading it.
Couple of things I thought about. First, where are the women at!?!? All of Gladwell's outlier examples are male. Bill Gates. Bill Joy. Steve Jobs. Chris Langan. And so on.
