As we engage with the story, Malcolm reveals factors that support his theory of success.
We later understand his other points of view on why Canadian ice hockey players born in the first months of the year become better than others, how The Beatles become the most successful musical acts in human history , and how cultural differences play a large part in intelligence and decision making.
