What is an Outlier?

From Malcolm Gladwell's website:  "'Outlier' is a scientific term to describe things or phenomena that lie outside normal experience... In this book I'm interested in people who are outliers—in men and women who, for one reason or another, are so accomplished and so extraordinary and so outside of ordinary experience that they are as puzzling to the rest of us as a cold day in August."

On Thursday, February 14, the lunchtime discussion group will meet in Room 122, at noon, to discuss this fascinating topic.  Bring your lunch!

Copies of the book and audio are available in the library.
