I have listened to the audio book of Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers".

It was very interesting and I liked it.
It has already changed the way I go on with my life.

By the way, it's true that numbering system in East Asian language is logical - at least I know about my native language, Japanese. It's strictly Base 10 (Decimal). After 13 years of counting in English (and the last one year in French as well), I have started counting numbers in Japanese in my head in the last few days after I listened to the audio book. Works very well.

It's a side issue but I'm glad that I have an advantage of choosing only a good thing from English and Japanese (and French a little) not being stuck with a handicap in one particular language.
