Standard

davidDavid and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell was a surprisingly great book!  I read it as a bookclub book choice.  I would have never chosen to read this book on my own, but really enjoyed it and am glad that I read it.  I listened to it on an audio book and the author read the book.  He was a great reader and the book was very interesting and informative.  I’ve actually found myself quoting from this book from time to time!  I plan on reading other books by Malcolm Gladwell and would absolutely recommend reading this one.

Goodreads describes the book:

In his #1 bestselling books The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell has explored the ways we understand and change our world. Now he looks at the complex and surprising ways the weak can defeat the strong, the small can match up against the giant, and how our goals (often culturally determined) can make a huge difference in our ultimate sense of success. Drawing upon examples from the world of business, sports, culture, cutting-edge psychology, and an array of unforgettable characters around the world, David and Goliath is in many ways the most practical and provocative book Malcolm Gladwell has ever written.
