And coming to terms with this reality is an essential part of increasing equality, opportunities and outcomes for all. It simply needs to disprove the self-deterministic incumbent. This is the task Gladwell takes on in Outliers — drawing on medicine, sport, business, history, music, science and his own life to illustrate the true complexity of success.

Some of the fascinating principles highlighted include: The powerful accumulative biases hidden in the details of supposedly meritocratic systems e. The self-made-success template fails across many domains. And even factors that we might think of as in our control e. So why does the old myth persist? Those immigrants, in turn, sent word back to Roseto about the promise of the New World, and soon one group of Rosetans after another packed their bags and headed for Pennsylvania, until the initial stream of immigrants became a flood.

In alone, some twelve hundred Rosetans applied for passports to America, leaving entire streets of their old village abandoned. The Rosetans began downloading land on a rocky hillside connected to Bangor by a steep, rutted wagon path. They built closely clustered two-story stone houses with slate roofs on narrow streets running up and down the hillside.

They built a church and called it Our Lady of Mount Carmel and named the main street, on which it stood, Garibaldi Avenue, after the great hero of Italian unification. In the beginning, they called their town New Italy.

But they soon changed it to Roseto, which seemed only appropriate given that almost all of them had come from the same village in Italy. De Nisco set up spiritual societies and organized festivals. He encouraged the townsfolk to clear the land and plant onions, beans, potatoes, melons, and fruit trees in the long backyards behind their houses.

He gave out seeds and bulbs. The town came to life. The Rosetans began raising pigs in their backyards and growing grapes for homemade wine. Schools, a park, a convent, and a cemetery were built.

Small shops and bakeries and restaurants and bars opened along Garibaldi Avenue. More than a dozen factories sprang up making blouses for the garment trade.

Neighboring Bangor was largely Welsh and English, and the next town over was overwhelmingly German, which meant - given the fractious relationships between the English and Germans and Italians in those years - that Roseto stayed strictly for Rosetans.

If you had wandered up and down the streets of Roseto in Pennsylvania in the first few decades after , you would have heard only Italian, and not just any Italian but the precise southern Foggian dialect spoken back in the Italian Roseto. Roseto, Pennsylvania, was its own tiny, selfsufficient world - all but unknown by the society around it - and it might well have remained so but for a man named Stewart Wolf.

Wolf was a physician. He studied digestion and the stomach and taught in the medical school at the University of Oklahoma. He spent his summers on a farm in Pennsylvania, not far from Roseto - although that, of course, didn't mean much, since Roseto was so much in its own world that it was possible to live in the next town and never know much about it.
