Overview

¿Qué diferencia a quienes hacen algo especial en la vida de quienes no lo hacen?

Fueras de serie explora las curiosas historias de los grandes jugadores de fútbol; bucea en la peculiar infancia de Bill Gates; busca qué convirtió a los Beatles en el mejor grupo de rock; y se pregunta qué distingue a los pilotos que estrellan aviones de los que no. A través de su viaje por el mundo de los "fueras de serie", los mejores, los más brillantes y famosos, nos convence de que nuestro modo de pensar en el éxito es erróneo.
Prestamos demasiada atención al aspecto de estas personas, y muy poca al lugar de donde vienen, es decir, a su cultura, su familia, su generación y a las singularidades de su educación. Brillante y entretenido, Fueras de serie es toda una referencia que al mismo tiempo iluminará y hará disfrutar.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Author of the best sellers The Tipping Point and Blink, Gladwell here has reached a tipping point in the consciousness of observers of popular culture. Following a format similar to his previous books, he gloms onto an apparent phenomenon—in this case people who seem significantly different from other people, whether for good or for ill—and offers startlingly logical explanations for why they stand out. Gladwell's reasons have largely to do with things like where they come from and what month they were born in. It's all very readable but not particularly surprising. No matter, libraries will need to acquire it. [LJ 10/1/08]

    Interesting and relevant

    Very interesting book. It moved along rapidly until the very end where it dragged a little for me. I liked this better than "Blink".

    Outliers --ok

    An interesting presentation of how nature, nurture, and practice are critical in many human activities including successful cockpit conversations to avoid accidents.
    I found the epilogue especially intriguing with the speculative application of some the ideas to Gladwell himself.
