Outliers: The Story of Success Asks the Question, "What Makes High-Achievers Different?"

Best-Selling Author Malcolm Gladwell Is C-Suite Book Club's Premier Author for April

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2015) - C-Suite Book Club, the premier source of leading business books for c-suite executives, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and celebrities, announced that one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people, Malcolm Gladwell, has been selected as C-Suite Book Club's premier author for April. His book, Outliers: The Story of Success takes readers on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers" -- the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful by asking the question, what makes high-achievers different?

His answer is that people pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from -- that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the diverse experiences of their upbringing. Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive, we should spend more time looking around them. In revealing that hidden logic, Gladwell presents a fascinating and provocative blueprint for making the most of human potential. With this book, he transforms the way we understand success.

Other authors featured this month on C-Suite Book Club are Michelle Tillis Lederman, author of 11 Laws of Likability and Doug Devitre, author of Screen to Screen Selling. In her book 11 Laws of Likability, Tillis Lederman makes the case about the importance of making meaningful connections through networking using activities, self-assessment quizzes, and real-life anecdotes from professional and social settings, showing readers how to identify what's likable in themselves and create honest, authentic interactions that become "wins" for all parties involved. Readers will discover how to start conversations and keep them going with ease; convert acquaintances into friends; uncover people's preferences and tweak their own personal style to enable engaging, reciprocal interactions; and, create follow-up and stay in others' minds long after the initial meeting.

Author Doug Devitre's book Screen to Screen Selling offers a series of checklists that will help increase sales, team productivity, and customer experience with technology. Among the series of checklists are: discovering new ways to sell your products or services, problems with sales presentations, the necessary tools for screen to screen selling, the process to schedule screen to screen conversations and what every sales person needs to get ready for the conversation, and more.

"At C-Suite Book Club we are always on the lookout for the best and brightest so it's truly an honor to have someone as respected as Malcolm Gladwell as April's premier author," said Jeffrey Hayzlett, founder of C-Suite Book Club and chairman of C-Suite Network. "The other authors featured, Michelle Tillis Lederman and Doug Devitre, are people you need to be on the lookout for. They offer great insights about the art of networking and selling. It might seem like an easy thing to do, but the truth is there's a right way to do things and these guys are definitely getting it right."
