Outliers Publishing announced the third book in the Outlier Series, Ingredients of Outliers: Women Game Changers is now available for sale on ingredientsofoutliers.com. The eBook profiles accomplished women with diverse journeys and backgrounds whose bravery, innovation, charisma and perseverance paved the way for others, both men and women. The eBook comes just before women Women’s History Month in March. The publication is also timely due to previous critiques from media outlets like Womensinc.net and Huffingtonpost.com which noted significant gender gaps in Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers: A Story of Success.
While Author Dr. John Shufeldt did not write the newly released publication in response to Gladwell’s book, he is excited to highlight the much deserving women, and agrees that in history and even presently, many stories of successful women have yet to be told. “I enjoyed Gladwell’s Outliers immensely, and was even inspired to run with the concept to help teach people the traits that are important to true success. There are simply not enough stories about successful women currently published, so after highlighting a myriad of incredible women in Ingredients of Outliers, I decided to focus more in depth on the subject and highlight six women to interview about their professional and personal lives, how they got to where they are today, and what they would do differently if they could give a younger person any advice.”
The women in Ingredients of Outliers: Women Game Changers includes Jenny McClendon, PA-C, former star of the WEtv series, Raising Sextuplets and mother of nine who is working full-time as a PA and caring for her family; an Attorney-CPA and 2014 Arizona gubernatorial candidate, Christine Jones; the first woman to be Supreme Court Chief Justice in Iowa, Marsha Ternus; Jane Hamilton, the bestselling and award winning author of A Map of the World and The Book of Ruth, both Oprahs Book Club selections; ophthalmologist, humanitarian, and physician-educator, Mildred M. G. Olivier; and, award winning environmental journalist and author, Sharon Guynup.
