Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell

Why the honoree chose the book

Social psychology is the study of how thoughts, behavior, and emotions vary as a function of the environment. Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers uses empirical research findings from social psychology to explain the role that various environmental factors play in individual success. Outliers eloquently bridges scientific research findings with enjoyable stories that demonstrate the applicability of social psychological research to everyday social behavior.
