Introduction

(In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of ''outliers'' the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Description in Spanish: Que 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 futbol; bucea en la peculiar infancia de Bill Gates; busca que convirtio a los Beatles en el mejor grupo de rock; y se pregunta que distingue a los pilotos que estrellan aviones de los que no. A traves de su viaje por el mundo de los ''fueras de serie'', los mejores, los mas brillantes y famosos, nos convence de que nuestro modo de pensar en el exito es erroneo. Prestamos demasiada atencion al aspecto de estas personas, y muy poca al lugar de donde vienen, es decir, a su cultura, su familia, su generacion y a las singularidades de su educacion. Brillante y entretenido, Fueras de serie es toda una referencia que al mismo tiempo iluminara y hara disfrutar.
