WHY READ IT?
"It is a great book about underdogs and how they are more powerful than we think. It helps show us how important our work is and even if we aren't seen as powerful in the world's eyes we still hold an important part in the fate of the world." - John Packer Stevenson
Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a pebble and a sling-and ever since, the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David's victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn't have won.
Or should he?
In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, suffer from a disability, lose a parent, attend a mediocre school, or endure any number of other apparent setbacks.
In the tradition of Gladwell's previous bestsellers-The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers and What the Dog Saw-David and Goliath draws upon history, psychology and powerful story-telling to reshape the way we think of the world around us.
