"Outliers" .

While sitting in the airport/riding on the plane I finished up "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell; I had brought some books with me to read because I figured it would be a lot more productive and meaningful to read rather than goof around on my laptop or simply listen to music counting the minutes (I'm also not comfortable sleeping in airports when I'm by myself, I'm too paranoid of waking up and having all my stuff gone).

In any event, I apparently read super fast because I read the entire second half or more of "Outliers" in just a few hours, and let me tell you, this book is worth every penny. It is inspiring, eye-opening, and will change your perspective on life and everything that is around you in society. It will change how you view cultural norms and the education system, and will inspire you to persevere toward your dreams... at least it did for me. I got so into it that I whipped out a pen and started underlining things that I loved (which is ridiculous for me because I'm totally one of those people that hates writing in books for fear of tainting the perfect pages in the book). I'm so exhausted at the moment from traveling all day, but one day this week I'll search back through and find all the quotes for you -- and maybe even inspire you to pick up the book for yourself.


  1. i always bring some books with me whenever i travel. and i tend to buy even more books on my travel. and i don't sleep at the airport/station too when i travel alone. i think that's just careless. ha.

    i'll check out this book the next time i visit a bookstore

  2. I've heard really good things about that book. I'm going to have to pick it up next time I'm out!

    1. Definitely. I'm going to try to get my hands on some of his other books!
