Chris Best’s Book Recommendation is available at the Ferndale Area District Library


I’d recommend the book Outliers by Malcom Gladwell.


This book should be required reading for all High School seniors. While praising hard work and dedication, it makes the argument that privilege and/or luck are actually major factors when it comes to success.

In this book, Gladwell seeks to question the common American narrative of the “self made man” through anecdotes of high profile success stories.

Hard work + smarts + a lot of luck= success. Work hard to be ready to seize a lucky opportunity!

-Chris Best
