I loved the writing in David and Goliath as much as Outliers, also by Gladwell. He writes with a specific pattern and his stories are interwoven in an intriguing and thought provoking way, making you challenge the way you view the world.
Absolutely yes. He has the sheer brilliance and vast knowledge to argue many of the concepts in this book. Malcolm is brilliant in what he does

I liked this book a whole lot! The beginning of it starts off a little strange and sounds religious, but then that changes and the book goes into the spiritual direction completely. A great book for inspiration and learning about how societies before us reacted through difficult circumstances. I got to learn how a lot of violent and controlling super powers from the past actually had their tactics backfire on them in the long run. Simply amazing!
Great stories about great people, great yet seemingly common and ordinary people who achieved the unespected thanks to being "small" and had gone thorough great difficulties.
This book is a must read.
This is another great book by Malcolm Gladwell. I did not enjoy it as much as some of his other books but it was a great book. I found some of the stories absolutely in line with other works of his but there were a few that were a little slow for what I become used to from Malcolm. A definite must read!
very interesting, and very well read by the author. I'm glad the performance was as good as it was because I really wanted to hear this book and not have to abandon it due to unbearable reading!
First couple chapters are good but after that it's a series of long-winded stories that could be told in a paragraph instead of a book chapter. I've read some of the author's other books, this one is not up to par with the others.
It's as if he had an idea that could be explained and proven in 30 pages (first our or two on the audible version) and then he decided that he needed extra content to make up a full book.
If you're a history Buff you might enjoy it just for the history lesson. However if your looking for a book full of substance, look elsewhere or read the cliff notes.
