Outliers (Malcolm Gladwell)

Picked this up late yesterday afternoon and couldn't put it down until I had finished it. Addressed lots of concerns in various areas and full of fascinating insights. How it interacts with Nussbaum's Fragility of Goodness is worth further thought. Highly recommended.
For more detail see the wikipedia page, although that doesn't address the material on airplane crashes, on which I'm going to do a separate post.
