I learn more when I listen to audiobooks and I can chew through a lot more books this way! Audiobooks are also a lot easier with a TBI
I would (and have) recommend this book to my friends and anyone else looking for a book that is both fun and informative. Gladwell always bring a fresh perspective to history and society, I find his views helpful and uplifting.
This book reminds me of Gladwell's "Outliers" but there isn't overlapping data, the stories are new and approached from a new perspective.
As far as Gladwell's performance goes I think he does a very good job narrating his own books. I prefer books that are read by the author and I liked his performance in this book.
It was addictive and really hard to press pause. I finished it in a couple days and then went out and got more of his books
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.
