Outliers – Malcom Gladwell

Overview

Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

In the past decade, Malcolm Gladwell has written three books that have radically changed how we understand our world and ourselves: The Tipping PointBlink, and Outliers. Regarded by many as the most gifted and influential author and journalist in America today, Gladwell has the rare ability to connect with audiences of tremendously varied interests. There are over 10 million copies of his books in print.

Now, Gladwell’s landmark investigations into the world around us are collected together for the first time. Beautifully repackaged and redesigned, with newly added illustrations throughout each book, COLLECTED is a perfect treasury of prose and provocation for Gladwell fans old and new.

Editorial Reviews

In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today…Outliers is a pleasure to read and leaves you mulling over its inventive theories for days afterward.

“Hard work and emotional intelligence.
I’ve always been curious about the archetypal “overachieving” type; the person with a 4.0 GPA, supplemented with a vast resume of extracurriculars and seemingly guaranteed placement at some selective, elite institution. They seem to effortlessly master their studies, creating a very bothersome imposition in the back of my mind that made me feel inadequate. For awhile, I felt that there was something innate these certain individuals possessed, hardening my fatalistic perspective about the world and making me question my own self-worth.”

Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant: Rich Dad’s Guide to Financial Freedom (Rich Dad #2)

 4.06  ·  Rating details ·  27,659 Ratings  ·  726 Reviews
The Cashflow Quadrant is the follow-up guide to finding the financial fast track that best works for you. It reveals the strategies necessary for moving beyond just job security to greater financial security by generating wealth from four selective financial quadrants. This work will reveal why some people work less, earn more, pay less in taxes, and feel more financially secure than others. It’s simply a matter of knowing which quadrant to work in.

 

Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant reveals how some people work less, earn more, pay less in taxes, and learn to become financially free. Have you ever asked yourself:

•Why do some investors make money with little risk while most other investors just break even?
•Why do most employees go from job to job while others quit their jobs and go on to build business empires?
•What does the shift from the Industrial Age to the Information Age mean to me and my family?

In 2000, financial management guru Robert Kiyosaki published “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” a book that advocates financial independence and encourages its readers to build their wealth through investments, real estate and entrepreneurship. One of the key concepts of Kiyosaki’s book is the cash flow quadrant, which breaks all people into one of four categories based on their financial intelligence. The four types are employee, self-employed, business owner and investor.

Linchpin -Seth Godin

“Why are some people easily outsourced, downsized, or freelanced into obscurity, while others have their pick of opportunities? In his most powerful book yet, Seth Godin argues that it’s more essential than ever to become indispensable – to become a linchpin. Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations: they invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They love their work and pour their best selves into it and turn each day into a kind of art – and, in today’s world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom.

Godin shows that the key to being indispensable is overcoming the fears that hold most of us back. If you have you ever found a shortcut that others missed, seen a new way to resolve a conflict, or made a connection with someone others couldn’t reach, then you have what it takes to become indispensable. It’s time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map.”

Infinite Possibilities is the masterwork from teacher, author, and featured speaker Mike Dooley. As the next step beyond his immensely popular Notes from the Universe trilogy, and his follow up, Choose them Wisely, this book contains even more enriching wisdom for living an abundant, joyous life.

Mike Dooley knows that we create our own reality, our own fate, and our own luck. We’re beings filled with infinite possibility—just ready to explore how powerful we truly are. Manifesting the magnificence of our dreams isn’t about hard work, but rather about belief and expectation. These principles transcend belief, realizing the truth about our human nature.
Your dreams are not accidental, nor inconsequential. And if someone were tell the truth about life, reality, and the powers we all possessed, would it be recognized? Our lives are full of adventures—and not exactly the sky-diving, mountain-climbing variety—but something better. Readers will laugh, applaud, and be inspired by Mike Dooley’s wit and wisdom.
