    In David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell challenges how we think about obstacles and disadvantages, offering a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against, or cope with a disability, or lose a parent, or attend a mediocre school, or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks. Gladwell begins with the real story of what happened between the giant and the shepherd boy those many years ago.

    Story

    I am biased! I already listened to most of Gladwell books and I was looking forward to this book. I was supposed to like the book from the start. However, until the last quartile of the book, I was seeing it as collection of works of Gladwell with interesting points of each chapter, some of them reminding me Solomon's "Far from the Tree". My own gauge of a good book is that how much the book is changing my viewpoint of the world and how it impacts the way I talk with my friends and family. Gladwell succeeds at the end with his solid arguments on seemingly unrelated stories. I will not attempt to summarize his main points but just a quick thanks to him for being the narrator of his own book because I was given more of the gift of listening than reading.
