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.
Desde que vi la presentación de este libro por Malcom en TED, despertó mi curiosidad por leer esta obra y mis expectativas fueron superadas más allá de sus vagos límites.
Cada capítulo era una nueva perspectiva de como afrontamos nuestras supuestas capacidades y discapacidades ante los "Goliath" que nos imponen la sociedad, nuestros propios pensamientos y costumbres.
Narrado por el mismo autor fue algo que me gustó aun más, porque sabía donde dar el énfasis necesario con su voz para transmitir el sentimiento de las personas de los relatos.
Yes, I have listened to it twice and it was even better the second time. I think I might listen to it again.
I have listened to all of his books and will listen to any other ones he writes, especially if he narrates it!
Gladwell's books have gotten progressively more anecdotal and his claims have become less substantiated. He Cherry picks examples and facts that barely support his claims. However, he is a great story teller. He may have decided that he need not be a statistician to tell interesting stories. If so, he should switch completely to biographies or historical fiction.
The only thing better than reading a Gladwell book is listening to Malcolm Gladwell read a Gladwell book. Definitely a five star read and reading.
I deeply appreciate the way Gladwell weaves storytelling and research together. In his hands heartbreak and a closer, longer look at humanity reveal unexpected truth. These are practical revelations I will immediately apply. Very well read! Will listen again certain to learn more.
