Outlier Academy

Outlier Book Club Episodes

In our Book Club series, we sit down with NYT bestselling authors to decode the big ideas in their books. We decode the ideas, frameworks, and strategies they used to write them, as well as the ways we can all put them into use in our work and lives. Past profiles include Deep Survival, Philosophy for Polar Explorers, The Wires of War, The Laws of Creativity, Vanishing Asia, and many other incredible books.
