I enjoyed the insight and perspective of David and Goliath. It also was a very interesting historical fact based take on this timeless example of courage. I wasn't expecting some of the gruesome murder stories related to children.
Absolutely excellent! It is a bonus that Malcolm Gladwell himself is the reader of the audiobook. I have already recommended this book to many people. Treat yourself! You won't regret it.
Very encouraging for the outlier... the disagreeable, the entrepreneur, the risk taker... the one who goes against the grain and risks the promotion for the greater good.
The audiobook started out strong, but then tapered as it continued. Many stories that he referred to in various chapters, were never finished. After a while, it became hard to comprehend the point of the stories as they weren't addressed again. Then, only in the last four minutes of the story does Gladwell tie everything together. It would've been more helpful had he explained his reasoning behind the stories shared with more detail. I was left wishing for more closure.
Wonderful thesis and content written with an overwhelming amount of examples as is his usual.
Like other works of this author, David and Goliath is a collection of fascinating stories weaved together around some common themes which I believe are intended to generate further thought and discussion. The author is a great story-teller.
