Outliers Publishing Announces New Book Honoring Women Outliers
In honor of National Women's History Month in March, Outliers Publishing announced today the next book in the Outlier Series will be aimed at highlighting women "outliers".
The title of the new book will be announced in late March 2014, and the book will be published in April 2014. The book is the third in the Outlier Series by author John Shufeldt, and will be available in eBook, paperback and hardcover formats. The book will highlight influential women who broke the confines of the ordinary and joined the ranks of the outliers.
Author John Shufeldt defines an outlier as "an exceptional person for whom excellence is merely a starting point toward a destination far beyond our normal definition of achievement." The book will highlight six women who encompass the traits of an outlier identified over thirty years of author John Shufeldt's career.
The third book in the Outlier Series is preceded by Ingredients of Outliers: A Recipe for personal Achievement, published in July 2013 and Ingredients of Young Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future, which is scheduled to publish in mid-March, 2014.
The book was inspired by several women encountered by Shufeldy who exemplify the qualities of outliers and deserve to be highlighted. Among whom is Jane Hamilton, author of A Map of the World, of Oprah's Book Club Collection, and Marsha Turnus, the first woman to serve as chief justice of Iowa's highest court.
According to Dr. Shufeldt, the goal of the third book in the Outlier Series in highlighting women is to act as a surrogate mentor for young ladies, and anyone out there, man or woman, looking to achieve more than they previously imagined was possible.
"Everyone needs a mentor, whether virtual or otherwise in order to spur each other on to achieve their goals," said Shufeldt.
Along the same vain as its predecessor, Ingredients of Outliers, the third book in the series is packed with advice and inspirational stories from "outliers," in this case exemplary and influential women. These stories are also accompanied by chapters on John's personal experiences and endeavors.
