Malcolm Gladwell is a popular current author who recently wrote a book called Outliers. In his book, he

claims that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that before someone becomes an expert at something, they must put in 10,000 hours of practice. Gladwell bases this claim primarily on the work of the psychologist Anders Ericsson.     


Your assignment is to write two paragraphs, one supporting Malcolm's 10,000 hour rule, and one critically arguing against Malcolm's 10,000 hour rule. Remember to use research, reason, examples, and a healthy amount of skepticism.
