Transcript of Outliers

Outliers
Chapter 9 and Epilogue
By: Maddie, Olivia, And Makenna B-2

Author's Purpose
The author's purpose was to show the world outliers weren't always so amazing, that they weren't born that way. It was their opportunities that made them so great.
Summary
The world thinks outliers just come out of nowhere. That's the wrong idea. Outliers are made by opportunities, family, surroundings, and little things like birth dates. The world needs to realize this, and realize anyone can become an outlier.
Quote #1
"We are so caught up in the myths of the best and brightest and the self made that we think outliers spring naturally from the earth."
-Page 268
Quote #2
"It is not the brightest who succeed."
-Page 267
Quote #3
Quote # 4
"To build a better world we need to replace the patchwork of lucky breaks and arbitrary advantages that today determine success-the fortunate birth dates and the happy accidents of history- with a society that provides opportunities for all."
-Page 268
Main Idea
Outliers aren't born. They're created by the people around them and their opportunities.
"The outlier, in the end, is not an outlier at all."
-Page 285
