This report combines several things that I love, but mostly it starts a conversation about the premise of my favorite book Outliers. I think the part of the report that I find most interesting/telling is when Mr. Gladwell talks about how the people who take advantage of “red shirting” are the people who least need that competitive edge due to other circumstances.

Seriously, read the book “Outliers“.
