Books to expand my mind.

Post by JR Mercier » 19 Jun 2018, 02:05

Hello people.
I'm looking to read books, doesn't matter what genre, that will expand my general knowledge and that are just a mind-blowing read. If it made you go, "WOW, what have I been doing all my life?" then I want to read it.
Any recommendations will be appreciated.
Dream up something wild and improbable.

Hey there try Outliers by Melcolm Gladwill
The Story of Success is the third true to life book composed by Malcolm Gladwell and distributed by Little, Brown and Company on November 18, 2008. In Outliers, Gladwell looks at the variables that add to elevated amounts of progress. To help his postulation, he inspects why the lion's share of Canadian ice hockey players are conceived in the initial couple of long stretches of the logbook year, how Microsoft prime supporter Bill Gates accomplished his extraordinary riches, how the Beatles ended up a standout amongst the best melodic acts in mankind's history, how Joseph Flom fabricated Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom into a standout amongst the best law offices on the planet, how social contrasts have a vast impact in apparent knowledge and balanced basic leadership, and how two individuals with outstanding insight, Christopher Langan and J. Robert Oppenheimer, wind up with such immensely extraordinary fortunes. All through the production, Gladwell over and again specifies the "10,000-Hour Rule", guaranteeing that the way to accomplishing world-class mastery in any aptitude, is, to a substantial degree, a matter of honing the right route, for a sum of around 10,000 hours, however the creators of the first investigation this depended on have debated Gladwell's utilization

That sounds like a fantastic read! It covers a wide variety and I've never heard of the "10,000-Hour Rule", but it sounds super interesting. Thank you so much for the recommendation! :tiphat:
