David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants
David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, will think about advantages and disadvantages in new ways. The conversational narrative style that Gladwell uses so expertly draws readers into the stories he presents, and helps us see an issue more comprehensively that we might have without his help. For me, the counter-intuitive exploration of class size in school was very interesting. The way in which Gladwell described how the shepherd David exploited his own strengths and Goliath’s weaknesses helped me see a familiar story in a new way. I’ve frequently enjoyed the way in which Gladwell can take the research of others and explain it to me and others with simplicity and clarity. That’s a gift to readers who are looking for something to read quickly in small spurts. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase David and Goliath from amazon.com.
