Book Review Appreciation
This week, we’re highlighting Amazon reviewer, Roso, who said the following:
“Outliers are defined as people with high aptitudes and ambitions to match. Shufeldt examines ways young people can reach their full potential and explores the traits of extraordinary individuals he has known for three decades. Books written to help young adults reach their maximum potential are nothing new; as a public school educator I have seen plenty and 99% were pure tripe. I was impressed with this book from the first chapter because one of the desired traits was humility. In a world where kids get a prize just for showing up and then complain the prize isn’t fancy enough, or the trophy isn’t big enough, this was so refreshing. It’s possible to tell individuals (of any age) that they are special so often, that they believe it, and lose sight of the need to grow and learn. I was also impressed with the idea of teaching children to be responsible for their mistakes, to own up to them, fix them and move on. It sounds like such a simple concept, but it’s one rarely employed, and one that should be learned by politicians, administrators and CEO’s the world over. This is truly the one book I have read that I believe can make a difference in the lives of children. And my kids love the term Outliers – they think it makes them sound like heroes who save the world after some apocalyptic event. In reality, isn’t that what we want them to be?”
We agree, Roso!
