Why do underdogs succeed so much more than they should? How do the weak outsmart the strong? In David and Goliath Malcolm Gladwell takes us on a scintillating and surprising journey to uncover the hidden dynamics that shape the balance of power between the small and the mighty.
His most enjoyable book so far. It is a feel-good extravaganza, nourishing both heart and mind. Each of its stories...has an ending that is both happy and surprising. What ostensibly unites the stories are the twin ideas that an advantage can sometimes be a disadvantage and that a disadvantage can sometimes be an advantage. Yet there is something more powerful and uplifting that also links them. It is that good beats bad - just when you least expected it. - Financial Time.
