Having previously read The Tipping Point, I decided to read Malcolm Gladwell's most recent release. Overall, I liked this one much better than The Tipping Point. He makes some very compelling arguments about success and how to find it. Basically, he says that success in a lot of cases in more about luck and opportunity and timing than about hard work and persistence (though he does not necessarily discount those other qualities).

I would recommend this book.
