UNF has selected Outcasts United: An American Town, a Refugee Team, and One Woman's Quest to Make a Difference by Warren St. John as the book selection for the 4th annual UNF Reads! program. Outcasts United is a book that students should find interesting and engaging. It is the story of a refugee soccer team, a remarkable woman coach and a small southern town turned upside down by the process of refugee resettlement.
Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers" - the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: What makes high-achievers different?
His answer is that we 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 idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.
