Gladwell always asks his readers to be open to the possibility that the opposite of what they believe may be true. Beginning with the story of David and Goliath, he makes the argument that weakness can be its own advantage and follows this thread through dozens of examples. A fantastic example of the kind of book that will change your mindset for the rest of your life.
I'd recommend this book along with his other books, blink, outliers, and the tipping point. I'm glad that the author reads it as well.
This book was better than I thought it would be. Malcolm Gladwell, as always, does a wonderful job of narrate ring his own books.
Highly recommended. So good.
This book is extremely interesting and has surprising examples of why things aren't always what you think. It also has some heart wrenching stories of survivors which have given me food for further thought.
An outstanding read.
I haven't read the print version.
I was particularly intrigued with the discussion of universities.
Are you David, Goliath or a bystander? Gladwell touches on the pros and cons of all three. He goes further to elaborate on the pros of being all 3 at appropriate times. This book delivers. Read it!
