I really did not enjoy reading this book. Although some of the points were interseting I found the authors tone a little too comdescending and after the first chapter I was ready to put the book down. I think what Malcolm Gladwell was arguing about opprotunity was right but I also think that the stories of people who go from nothing to something is still a great feat and shouldn't be played down because of his findings. I wouldn't really reccomend this book to anyone just because I felt like it was slightly dull and he feeling of the book was a little too preachy for me.
