Outliers Publishing decided to make Ingredients of Young Outliers: available on Netgalley after generating interest with local schools for Close Reading material and as a student leadership guide. Author John Shufeldt was inspired to write the book by two local fifth and eight grade classes, whose students took to the original book in the Outlier Series, Ingredients of Outliers: A Recipe for Personal Achievement, and requested a student leadership book from the author. Outliers Publishing and Author John Shufeldt decided a complimentary online version of the book would be the best way for middle school and high school teachers, school counselors, academic and student leadership programs nationwide to access the material.
Author John Shufeldt’s goal in writing Ingredients of Young Outliers was to serve as a surrogate mentor to young people, incorporating his most valuable lessons, while also sharing the less highlighted stories of notable individuals who faced challenges on their way to success.
“Everyone needs a mentor, whether virtual or otherwise in order to spur each other on to achieve their goals,” said Shufeldt.
Ingredients of Young Outliers will be followed by at least 8 other books over the course of 2014 through 2015. The books are intended for students, college graduates and anyone interested in entering or furthering their career. The goal of the series is to offer books specific to sought after career fields with insider information and recommended channels for pursuing that career from experts in each respective profession.
