Read this book. I recently referred to Outliers in a Keynote - Malcolm Gladwell's writings have been instrumental in a lot of my research regarding the Theory of Intuitive Intelligence. It seems that at just the right moment I'll look up at my library and see one of his books, pull it down (FOLLOWING the intuition that it may hold something I need RIGHT NOW - instead of brushing the thought away) I'll get up pull the book down, be it Blink, Tipping Point or Outliers - open the book "randomly" - random, not random - and there is a passage that speaks perfectly to what I'm working on. Outliers is what I'm reading right now and it's discussing Practical Intelligence - a stepping stone to Intuitive Intelligence. Pick up this book and read it. I bet you will see yourself in at least one of these stories. More importantly, you'll learn something about yourself and possibly the people around you. Other books I referenced were Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon,
And last but certainly not least, Einstein, His Life and Universe by Walter Issackson.
Outliers is an easy read. Steal Like an Artist is even easier. The Einstein book may just blow your mind. I started reading it years ago and haven't finished it. I just pick it up when I need to. But the point is pick one of them up. Learn something from these very different authors. Start with Outliers.
