Malcolm Gladwell describes in this book different ways how people were successful.Throughout the book he explains the ways of different popular people in different working areas.Mainly the book tells to practice something hard to get a master in it The 10 000h rule.But it also tells you that it is about the opportunities you will have different scenarios for different people And everybody with a different skillset.It helped me to understand that you shouldn t be focusing on the stories that others had before, because you cannot repeat them and put them on your life You should focus on your environment, try to practice what you do over and over again and be attentive at your opportunities Es werden etliche Aussagen in Frage gestellt, die immer wie selbstverst ndlich gemacht werden, wenn es um Gr nde f r au erordentliche Lebensl ufe geht Sehr gut zu lesen, da interessant geschrieben Leider werden die Aussagen zu oft nicht durch statistisch stabile Daten belegt, sondern durch das Schildern von Einzelf llen die auch Zufall sein k nnten Dennoch ein durch und durch lesenswertes Buch
