In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--­the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-­achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band. Brilliant and entertaining, OUTLIERS is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

Pocos políticos del siglo XX siguen despertando todavía la fascinación que suscita Winston Churchill. Y pocos escritores parecen tan predestinados a escribir sobre él como el alemán Sebastian Haffner, quien escogió precisamente la patria de Churchill para vivir en ella su prolongado exilio político de 1938 a 1954. Haffner, testigo privilegiado de la época, es capaz de desvelar mejor que nadie los factores que convirtieron a Churchill, el gran estadista de su país de adopción, en la némesis implacable de Hitler, el mítico dictador que había sido el causante de su exilio. Sin embargo, en su biografía Haffner no se limita a explicar, con admirable claridad y precisión, las claves del descomunal duelo de titanes que daría forma a la nueva Europa, sino que también emplea su brillante, irónico y accesible estilo para seguir uno a uno los pasos que, además, permiten que también recordemos a Churchill como un osado aventurero, un mordaz crítico militar e incluso un escritor cuya talla . . .

During the mid 1980s Howard Marks had 43 aliases, 89 phone lines, and owned 25 companies throughout the world. Whether bars, recording studios, or offshore banks, all were money laundering vehicles serving the core activity: dope dealing. Marks began to deal small amounts of hashish while doing a postgraduate philosophy course at Oxford, but soon he was moving much larger quantities. At the height of his career he was smuggling consignments of up to 50 tons from Pakistan and Thailand to America and Canada and had contact with organizations as diverse as MI6, the CIA, the IRA, and the Mafia. This is his extraordinary story.

On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War. The lieutenant’s name was Louis Zamperini. In boyhood, he’d been a cunning and incorrigible delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and fleeing his home to ride the rails. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics and within sight of the four-­minute mile. But when war had come, the athlete had become an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a . . .
