This book was excellent, Gladwell continues to deliver. But, after experiencing the brilliance of The Outliers, Blink, and The Tipping Point, I can only see David and Goliath as a "B-side" dissertation. But then, those earlier books were beyond phenomenal. BTW- he is a very engaging narrator! While not his best work, this is nevertheless an enjoyable piece.
What could be better than reading Gladwell's fascinating streams of stimulating research and brilliant insight...?... Well, hearing him recount these investigations. With mesmerizing dynamism and thoughtful twists, I found Audible's David and Goliath hard to "put down." Very much worth one's time. You'll want to share these stories with friends, families, co-workers, etc.
Feels like author is a bit full of himself, a bit cocky. Some interesting ideas are brought forth, but taking this all in with a grain of salt feels right.
A one paragraph summary would encompass the bulk of what he was trying to say.
Don't underestimate the underdog. Ok a sentence. If you want examples and examples, read on.
once again, gladwell gives great perspective and insight by providing real life examples. I loved the concepts and how he explains that winning at your own game and not trying to beat them at theirs is one of the keys to success. many great thoughts in this book. lots of light bulb moments.
