Deep Dive Conversations | Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success

Today With Dr. Kaye segment aired November 16,2023.

Malcolm Gladwell's book, "Outliers: The Story of Success” explores the factors that contribute to high levels of success.

Gladwell challenges the traditional notion that success is solely based upon individual talent and hard work, and instead argues that other factors such as cultural background, family upbringing, timing, and opportunities play a significant role in shaping successful individuals.

In the book, he introduces the concept of the “10,000-Hour Rule,” which implies it takes 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in a particular field.
