    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.

    Three thousand years ago on a battlefield in ancient Palestine, a shepherd boy felled a mighty warrior with nothing more than a stone and a sling, and ever since then the names of David and Goliath have stood for battles between underdogs and giants. David's victory was improbable and miraculous. He shouldn't have won. Or should he have?

    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.

    Whether a conflict is between two nations, two businesses or even a person battling physical dysfunction, we tend to assume that the bigger and better armed of the opponents will take the day. That's why stories like the battle between Goliath and David capture our imagination - they are so remarkable. But Malcolm Gladwell proposes that we are missing out on the bigger picture - we assume too much about outcomes and miss some realities which paint a different picture.

    Wenn David auf Goliath trifft, hat er zwei Möglichkeiten: Spielt er nach dessen Regeln, wird er verlieren. Ist er bereit, die Regeln der Macht zu brechen, zwingt er den Riesen damit in die Knie. Malcolm Gladwell ist davon überzeugt: Underdogs sind Gewinner! In genialen Episoden von listigen Kriegsherren, halbstarken Basketballteams und inspirierten Softwareentwicklern zeigt der Kultautor, dass Triumph keine Frage der Größe, sondern der inneren Haltung ist.
