Rhetorical Analysis: Outliers: The Story of Success.
The book, “Outliers: The Story of Success,” by Malcom Gladwell discusses the journey of success by exploring the world of outliers, that is, those who fall outside the normal expectations of the society. In the book, Gladwell seeks to find out what makes high-achievers different. He answers that we pay too much attention what successful people are and little attention to where they come from. Gladwell writes, “It’s not enough to ask what successful people are like, in other words. It is only by asking where they are from that we can unravel the logic behind who succeeds and who doesn’t.” (Gladwell, 19). The audience of the rhetoric analysis are those who need to understand the book better. The purpose of the rhetorical analysis is to use chapters one and two to show how Gladwell convinces the reader to look at where the outlier comes from. Click here to download full rhetoric analysis.
