Publisher's Summary

Ingredients of Outliers: a Recipe for Personal Achievement is a life-altering guide packed with accounts from John's personal endeavors, as well as those of historical figures and influential acquaintances. This quintessential handbook exposes the x-factor, that extra something, which unleashes each individual's full potential. There is an abundance of humor and and enlightenment in this audiobook. Each one of the 16-chapters in the audiobook focuses on a different attribute demonstrated by outliers.

The chapter topics include humility, failure, persistence, preparation, communication, imperturbability, tolerating risk, kindness, learning, optimism, perspective, indefatigability, efficiency, integrity, intuition and being one of a kind. John writes about great outliers from the past, such as Ray Kroc, Dr. Seuss, Fred Astaire, Theodore Roosevelt, Captain Chelsey "Sully" Sullenberger and more. John also incorporates stories of the accomplishments of everyday people who broke the boundaries of the ordinary by demonstrating a specific characteristic of an outlier. As a serial student, an indefatigable change agent and a multidisciplinary entrepreneur, John has studied the traits and qualities of extraordinary individuals for over three decades and experienced his own successes and failures. Ingredients of Outliers is a compilation of thoughts, tips and techniques that will guide you toward finding the ingredients in the "secret sauce" that makes an individual go from average to extraordinary and will inspire you to step outside your comfort zone to join the ranks of the outliers.
