Publisher's Summary

Malcolm Gladwell's David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants is a book about perceived disadvantage. People with few resources or certain disadvantages may seem weak and unlikely to win. However, in many cases, the same factors that make underdogs seem weak gives them built-in advantages. Underdogs are much more likely to win than people think.

In the biblical battle between David and the giant Goliath, David won because he refused to play by the rules of the powerful. He used a deadly sling rather than engaging in honorable hand-to-hand combat. The weak often feel free to adopt scrappy, unexpected tactics that the powerful disdain. As a result, powerful nations are often defeated by insurgencies.

Please note: This is a summary, analysis, and review of the book and not the original book.

    "Good summary, choppy narration"

    I enjoyed the content, it was very concise and enabled me to absorb the main points of the book quickly.

    I did feel though that the narration was a bit jerky- sentences seemed to have misplaced emphasis which made it a little difficult to understand.

    However per one of the key takeaways of the book perhaps overcoming that challenge enabled me to more effectively absorb the material. :)
